Hi newlyweds. People will be loathe to tell you this right now, while you’re radiating with that “I-just-got-engaged!” glow, but marriage is hard. Half of all marriages fail – yours could be one of them, and shiny new flatware and stemless wine glasses won’t be able to save it (though the wine will help).

It’s tough love, we know. But we’re only telling you because 1) we don’t want you to end up like Kim Kardashian and 2) you have a unique opportunity to get a few handy tools for easy wedding repair, absolutely free of charge — it’s called the wedding registry. So while you’re loading up your registry with all those trusty home essentials, don’t forget to throw in a few items that will make your married life much easier, and WAY more fun.

For more just-engaged tips, check out our list of the 10 Things To Do As Soon As You Get Engaged, and the 10 Things You Should Never Do While Wearing Your Ring.
