The honeymoon's over. Now what? Couples who spend months—even years—planning their weddings are often unprepared for the transition to married life. As Sharon Naylor shows, however, the first year of marriage doesn't have to be a gauntlet of conflict and unmet expectations.
As Naylor explains in Home from the Honeymoon, newlyweds can choose to focus on all the romantic firsts they're enjoying together: setting up their household, celebrating holidays, and savoring their new social life as a married couple. And they can survive—and learn lifelong lessons from—the inevitable battles over matters large (sex, money, meddlesome in-laws) and small (clutter, weekend plans, what color to paint the living room). Because the book is also a journal—with lots of space for jotting down milestones and memories—it will be a keepsake that married couples will relish revisiting throughout all their years together.
