Chapter 1:
Introduction
Synopsis
If the two of you have not even lived together yet, there is a good chance that arguments will occur later in the relationship once you guys move in together. We often see this in many situations. It's actually referred to as the "stages" in your relationship.
Each relationship goes through a stage, no matter how close you are to the person. You might be nit-picky person who prefers everything spotless while your partner just throws his garbage wherever he is standing.
Other issues may arise such as times for intimacy, working late, going out with friends, and how you handle business around the house. All of these things can contribute to how the two of you get along. Rules should be established so that way you both can live happily married.

The Basics
Marriage isn't just trying to survive. It is more meaningful then that. Marriage is about making sacrifices for the one that you truly love.
When they are sick, you make time away from work to take care of them. If your partner is upset about you going out a lot and not paying attention to them, you should give them more of your time. Doing small things can be a big help and make the relationship less dramatic in the sense of arguments.
Make sure you let your spouse know how much they mean to you each day and never take them from granite. You never know when you will see them again and this is why it's so important.
Communication skills are one of the most important aspects of marriage. If you can't communicate with your other half, the relationship is doomed. Try talking less and listening more. Or if you are someone who talks more and listens less, it is time to lend them your ear. Maybe your spouse wants you to listen to them so that way you'll know exactly how they feel about a certain situation.

Chapter 2:
Survival and marriage
Synopsis
In order to survive marriage, you need to know what your priorities are first. Work should never be your first priority, although your parents might say so otherwise. Your spouse should always come first. After all, they are the person that shares the home with you, cooks meals, makes extra money for your both, helps watch the kids, and be intimate from time to time.

Surviving
There is so many activities to do in marriage and in this age, usually both people are working. This is what makes the marriage so difficult because men are not used to doing activities that a woman would be doing. For example, most men refuse to iron their laundry or clean the bathroom. It really isn't something they would do. And forget planting flowers out in the backyard. They won't even go near the flowers.
Men are trained to work hard by their fathers and get a good education to provide for their family. They aren't the ones who can become pregnant and grow close to their child. Usually, once the mother has given birth is when they become emotional. A man needs to see their child in order to believe the reality of the matter. They do not understand what women go through during pregnancy and expect us to do everything around the house.
Woman are generally more emotional and seem to talk more than doing household work. If the toilet leaks or the sink is broken, guess who they call? They call their husband in a panic. The woman are good at doing chores such as folding laundry, cooking a delicious meal, and getting all dressed up for that dance their husband is taking them to after work.
Eventually, at the end of the day - both man and woman are in the same bed. The woman is reading her book, focused intently on what

she is reading. The man can only thing about one thing and that's sexual intimacy. This is the only time he begins to talk to her, trying romance and even rubbing her.
Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. When men do get their way, they usually climb on top and do their job. After, their spouse just lies there, trying to catch her breath.
The problem is that the man already falls asleep without saying I love you or anything that shows appreciation. It is like nothing ever happened. Obviously, this is because most men aren't emotional and they just do things whenever they like.
