Advice for newlyweds.
Today I wanted to share with you 5 pieces of sentimental advice for newlyweds coming from my experience being married headed into eight years. First of all, I adore my husband and I love being a wife.
However, I didn’t always feel this happy and secure. My husband and I have gone through many trying times in our marriage. We’ve had our good times and our bad times just like every other married couple out there.

Even so, I want to help you as a newlywed, start your marriage off with helpful advice that can help build your marriage happy and strong. Here’s a disclaimer, I do not claim to be a marriage expert but I do love to share what has worked for my marriage in hopes it helps you in your time of need, newlywed.
What’s important in a marriage?
Often times, I look back and wish someone would have cared enough to share these meaningful tips with me at the start of my marriage. Above all, I would have handled situations differently and would have greatly appreciated the advice.
I feel like I didn’t have enough advice from loved ones starting off my marriage as a newlywed. The three most important things in a marriage, (I have come to learn) are: respect, trust, and communication.
Having this all is vital to having a successful and happy marriage. It’s important for you to know and accept that as a newlywed.
But, if you don’t do things starting off the right way, it can become rather difficult to fix as time goes on.
So, why not start off on the right foot right from the beginning? You’ll save yourself a ton of headaches. There’s nothing I’d like for you more than to learn from my mistakes.
However, learning is apart of growing so without further ado, let’s dive right into this advice for newlyweds.

Advice for newlyweds.
- Don’t brush off your spouse’s thoughts and opinions.
At the beginning of my marriage, I consistently found myself brushing off what my husband would try to share with me. I wasn’t valuing his input and it was certainly putting a strain on our marriage.
Paying attention to your partner day after day, no matter how tedious and redundant the subject may be is vital for your marriage. Newlywed wife, don’t be like the old me!
Ignorance is bliss but living this way could greatly affect your relationship!
Take your marriage seriously, from the beginning.
- Take your marriage seriously, even when you really don’t want to.
Even though I was pretty young when I married my husband, often times, I would treat our arguments as I treated high school relationships. That is definitely an error.
Marriage is a very serious partnership and should be taken lightly. I highly recommend to read a few books on marriage. If you don’t know of any good books you can certainly check out your Bible for guidance.
The Bible has tons of valuable information on marriage and God can guide you through your marriage, especially when you are feeling overwhelmed. You can purchase yours in the link down below for a beautiful and affordable one.
Advice for newlyweds.
It’s essential in a marriage to keep pushing on. Yes, there are such frustrating times in marriage, this is true.
But the key is to learn from your mistakes, not hold grudges, and continue on with each other. Side by side. Don’t loose hope, even when things feel like they’re going so wrong.
A little bit of faith can go a long way.
Believe me when I say, there’s a light at the end of the tunnel newlyweds. It just takes a little guidance, faith, and prayer.
Have faith in your marriage and the person you married. Trust your spouse and love them with a full heart and an open mind.
Marriage is a give and take, forever and ever. You’ve got to learn to give and be patient, newlyweds.
Patience can become your best friend in your marriage, if you’re smart. The more patient that you are in your marriage the likelier your marriage will be a success.
More advice for newlyweds.
- Fighting with your spouse isn’t ideal.
Trust me when I say, you have a whole lifetime to argue so putting some arguments on hold isn’t the worst thing in the world. Whenever my daughter gets into a little spat with a friend, I always advise her to put a hold on it and chat with your friend about it the next day.
Such a simple little tip of advice and yet the same applies to marriage. Respecting each other is important in your marriage as well.
Don’t forget to let your spouse know when you’re feeling like there’s too much fighting going on in your marriage and it needs to be fixed.
Have patience, newlyweds.
Arguing with your spouse can put stress on you and if it occurs too often, ultimately WILL put a strain on your marriage. Arguments will occur in a marriage, more often than we care to admit.
Take a breather, a pause, a BREAK. Come to it the next day, if it’s really not that urgent. Don’t be impatient!

Spending quality time together is important as a newlywed.
- Take the time to spend quality time together, even if this just includes watching Netflix together.
I’m not the biggest fan of staying at home to have dates but with two small children, not only is it convenient but it is nice to not stress on getting a sitter with our very busy schedules.
However, I do make a point of watching a movie with my husband or having a conversation of what he wants to talk about.
A lot of times, spouses can feel unheard and just want their spouse to listen to them. If talking with your spouse gets tedious, that can be a deeper issue within yourself you may need help with.
Your spouse wants to talk with you. Trust me when I say, I want to talk to my husband all throughout my day.
Why? Because we do LIFE together.
I depend on my husband for a lot in my life every single day and I know he depends on me too. I’m a blogging work from home mom and wife and he’s out there working daily.
As busy as I feel I try my hardest to spend quality time with my husband. Even if it’s something as simple as watching a movie together before falling asleep, we make sure to do this because we know the importance of spending time together.
Before, during rough times in our marriage we didn’t make spending time together a priority and that’s a big mistake.
Spending time together keeps you in sync, close, and the sooner you get into the routine of spending a lot of time together, the easier your marriage will become.
However, I do know how busy life gets. I mean, we are busy. As much as we’d like to be together all the time and chat, we need to lead our daily lives with our routines.
I always have things to do with our kids every single day and we have to make sure we all get time together as a family.
