7 Newlywed No-Nos!
  1. No-No #1: Not Dealing with Debt
    • Money is the #1 thing couples fight about, so why go there? Well, if you want a house, a car, or a family you've gotta sort it out. Fess up about your personal debt -- because for better or worse, you just married it!
  2. No-No #2: Alienating Your Friends
    • Okay, so you've been kinda ignoring your friends. Hey, you're a newlywed! But buddies are key for a successful marriage, so tag along on those girl's out. Just because you're not guy-hunting doesn't mean you can't be a supportive wingwoman.
  3. No-No #3: Not Having Enough Sex
    • Get this: Over 60 percent of newlyweds we surveyed were already in a sex rut! Yeah you're busy, but that's not a good enough excuse not to get busy. Initiate sex, even if you don't feel like it or have to schedule it. If you get in the habit of having it, you'll start wanting it more -- and liking it more too!
  4. No-No #4: Letting Yourself Go
    • So you put on the "newlywed nine." Big've already found your mate, right? Wrong! Make a plan to get fit together or at least respect each other's goals.
  5. No-No #5: Out-lawing the In-laws
    • Fifty percent of couples we surveyed have a problematic relationship with their in-laws (ya think?). Manage expectations, like saying you'll call on Sundays so the MIL doesn't guilt-trip you for ignoring her weekday messages. Even if your spouse is bitching about his family, resist the urge to chime in. It'll bite you in the butt later.
  6. No-No #6: Crazy Fighting
    • Getting hitched isn't a free pass to hit below the belt (sorry!). When you're getting really heated, walk away to cool down for a few minutes. If you're too mad to think straight, you'll say something you'll regret. Then move on to making bed.
  7. No-No #7: Becoming Baby-Obsessed
    • It's easy to fixate on that next big step, but chill out -- the average couple has a kid within three years of marriage, so why rush? Savor the moments (and vacations you can take!) now...when you won't have to be waking up for a brutal 4 a.m. feeding.
