Once you get married, there’s the challenges you face. One of the key ones is sleeping. Yes, actual sleeping. Get your mind out of the gutter (I’m sure we’ll get there later). The sexy little thing in the black dress that put on white for the wedding day and walked down the aisle for you is now a partner. You share space. You share showers. There’s no hiding your grungy habits if she didn’t know them before. Then there’s sleep. This is an important one. If you can sleep with someone, you’re probably 80% through the problems of marriage. Nothing is made better by insomnia. If you can’t deal with the lump in your bed, you’re screwed. Finding a way to share a bed space is a huge part of building a life together. 1/3 of your life is spent doing it. If you see each other every waking hour outside of work, that’s 1/2 your married life (giving you parole of 8 hours a day on the weekends). Screw this one up, and you’re going to be regretting it. If you can’t watch her fall asleep and chase shortly after, start figuring out how you can.
