The reception is over, the decorations are put away and the third tier of the wedding cake is in the freezer. You've planned the wedding; now it's time to plan the marriage!

What will life be like between now and your first anniversary? John and Kim Bytheway explore some of the wonderful adjustments of that first year. They talk about things like expectations, communication, appreciation, commitment and finances, and they also offer fun suggestions for keeping romance alive on a tight budget--all the things they wish they'd known.

What We Wish We'd Known When We Were Newlyweds--a perfect guide for going from "anxiously engaged" to "happily married."
