Don’t get your hopes up, team Jennifer fans.  Rumor has it that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie may wed in the near future.  “The kids ask about marriage.  It’s meaning more and more to them,” Pitt told People.  “So it’s something we’ve got to look at.”  Originally the plan was to wait until everyone can legally marry, but the children have changed the duo’s hearts.  Pitt also spoke of the parenting ways he and Jolie use to bring up their chidren, as well as how they get their alone time.  “Angie and I do everything we can to carve out some semblance of normalcy for them, to re-create the kinds of moments that were special for us.”

How do things change once you tie the knot?

Cupid’s Advice:

 

Marriage is a big step, and you both need to be serious about it. Cupid knows what’s coming, so here’s what to prepare yourself for before you tie the knot:

1. Less effort: Some look at marriage as the grand prize.  If this is you, you may feel you worked hard enough to get here, so now it’s time to relax.  Not putting in as much time and effort to keep the relationship strong can lessen the meaning and power it once had.

2. Interest level: Forever is a long time.  It’s also enough time for one to get bored of the same old thing. Sometimes you’re going to need to give your partner more space or spend extra time together to keep the relationship fresh.

3. Sharing and the future. There are so many important factors couples must consider before tying the knot.  Prenups, living situations, and of course, children, are primary.  Remember that, from now on, this person is a part of you.  Make decisions together.
