One of the biggest problems dating couples have is they often have unrealistic expectations. While dating, it is easy to have good times and from this early experience expect that marriage will be exactly the same way. Unfortunately, this leaves far too many newlywed couples dealing with the reality that life can be hard. Therefore, it is wise for dating couples who are contemplating marriage to discuss potential difficulties. Being open and honest early in the dating relationship can actually increase your relationship bond.
