In light of the recent influx of celebrity divorces, itâ€™s great to come across a happy and healthy Hollywood marriage.Â Nikki Reed, who tied the knot with American Idolâ€™s Paul McDonald, told People, “The first year [of marriage] is not the hardest. Â Gosh, if this is the hardest, then itâ€™s gonna be easy breezy.”Â She added that even under the most stressful situations, she and her new husband still make a great team.
As a newlywed, how do you set a good precedent for your marriage?
Itâ€™s important set the precedent for a healthy relationship from the beginning, not just when it comes to marriage, but also when it comes to dating. Â Cupid has some tips:
1. Donâ€™t sweat the small stuff: Fighting over silly things is a waste of time and can only put an unnecessary riff between you and your partner.
2. Speak up: If your partner says or does something you donâ€™t like, tell them from the beginning that their behavior is unacceptable.
3. Be their best friend: A perfect partner isnâ€™t just a lover, but also a best friend.
