Having similar interests is awesome. Having different interests is also awesome. It is important to have a life outside of marriage. it sounds weird so let me explain. Being together is wonderful, being joined at the hip 24/7, not so much. It is essential to have your friends, your hobbies and your passions, as well as for your partner to have theirs. Have a girls night, join a book club, go out for a drink. Make time for you. Each of you has to be happy in yourself before you can be happy in a marriage.
Life can be hectic, it can (and will) kick your butt. Always set aside time each week to spend quality time with each other. Date nights are essential (and fun). Turn off your devices (phones etc.) crack open a bottle of wine cook dinner together and reconnect. Talk, laugh, and remember what made you fall in love with each other. You get out of marriage what you put into it. It is an investment into your future, and it is wonderfully awesome!
