We all know the typical marriage advice given to new couples- “Never stop dating.” “Never go to bed angry.” These are just two examples of the pieces of wonderful advice we’ve heard more times than we can count.

While these things are extremely important, there’s other advice out there that can make your marriage awesome.

Here are 13 pieces of awesome marriage advice from real people:

1. Enjoy each other’s company

“Silence is OK. You don’t have to be talking to each other constantly to be comfortable. Just enjoy each other’s company.” - IanicRR

2. Don’t take her for granted

“Never let her regret making sacrifices for you. Show thanks that you have such a selfless woman in your life.” - wx3

3. This is so true

“A happy marriage is made up of two really good forgivers.” - told_ya

4. She picks them out

“My mother’s philosophy is that my dad wears the pants, but she picks them out and matches the shirt and tie.” - deleted

5. Money problems

“My mom always says, ‘Never marry somebody you would not want to start a business with.’ Disagreements over money can tear two people apart.” - deleted

6. Separate spaces

“Have separate spaces. I don’t mean sleep in different rooms, but maybe have an office, a craft room, a man cave or a garden. Something where you can be alone and do your own thing sometimes.” - sjokitten

7. This is adorable

“Not really advice we got, but advice we give: Every morning, we take our wedding rings and put them on each other’s finger. We get married all over again, every morning.” - DragonMoose

8. Always say it

“Always say I love you, if you’re at that point. Even if you have a fight, just say it. Say it before you go to bed, even if you’re deciding to sleep off the anger. Life changes in a second, and you don’t want the last thing you said to be something of hate.” - deleted

9. Love isn’t 50/50

“Love isn’t always 50/50. Sometimes you have to give it all, and sometimes you need to get it all.” - saucedonkey

10. Forever and ever

“Don’t do anything early in the relationship that you’re not willing to do forever.” - toss_advision

11. Perfect advice

“Never marry someone you can live with. Marry someone you can’t live without." - UnbelievableRose

12. You’ll start to lose them

“The day you stop trying to impress her is the day you start to lose her. Ladies, this goes for you too.” - buffalo_pete

13. Make it work

“Relationships are not about how long you’ve known the person. People change and a successful relationship comes when both people can adapt to the changes, make sacrifices and make it work.” - babymouse
