Your relationship and your family is WORTH the fight. Every time.
There are some generally accepted facts that people fundamentally understand when they’re getting married … That problems will arise and that somehow, you’re going to have to come out of them still holding hands on the other side.
There are also a lot things that can “clutter” up the view of your relationship to one another: joint bank accounts, kids, working together to solve issues instead of just throwing your hands up and walking away, houses, jobs, bills … all of these things can seem positively overwhelming when you’re thinking of getting married, or even a newlywed. Even some years into marriage, these everyday issues can make you lose sight of the reason that you’re in that situation first and foremost:
The person you chose to be with because you love them and saw yourself together for the rest of your lives.
