These are some tidbits Samir and I have received from our loved ones so far. I've relished how the advice has been similar whether it's come from someone in an arranged marriage or what Indians call a "love marriage".
-Always believe your partner is doing the best he or she can
-Embrace each other's family and friends as your own
-Schedule new activities together
-Schedule activities independently
-Make clear decisions on finances from the beginning
-Go to each other first, not friends or family, when there's an issue
-Build your bond on respect above any other virtue
