10 most surprising things about marriage

9. Your sex life (even if it's great before marriage) will have its ups and downs.
"My husband and I used to have a great sex life before we got married. Now I feel as if I have no desire most of the time. My only advice is to try to make special time with each other where there is NO PRESSURE to have sex, just spend time together enjoying each other's company. I have found that when my husband and I do that, sex seems to come naturally." --lfloyd72

"Do not pressure him when it comes to sex. The more you pressure him, the worse it will get." --jexibelle

10. The truth always comes out.
"No matter what, you have to be honest with one another, otherwise it might not end out for the best for each other. My first husband was not honest, and after 10 years we divorced. Too many lies, he was cheating, of course I found out, and we just fell apart." --twntdarden
