    Sorry for always double posting, but I would say the hardest thing maybe is learning to communicate about everything, but we are working on it.

    I’d say getting the quality time away from work- is our biggest priority and challenge.  Neither of us particularly likes to work, but we both switched to jobs that will maximize our time off together. 

    Our biggest pain in the @$$ is keeping the house up with two full time jobs.  Not that either of us care if the house is perfect or not.  Finding storage for all of the wedding gifts is an ongoing issue too.

    I can’t choose one! We have a little of all of them

    Sex isn’t as often (only 1-2 times per week-used to be 3-4 per week) because I went off the pill 8 weeks ago and my drive is LOWER than on the pill…my cycle is whacky now (spotting pretty much daily now) and mood swings are pretty active.

    Money  We have to save a lot of money for a bigger house and because we want to start a family soon, so that’s very stressful

    Family-his mom and mine both are having major problems (his mother has health-related problems and mine is going through bankruptcy and losing her home)

    The clean house? What clean house? Oh man….way behind on that now.

    AHH! Lots of stress! But I’m still so happy I married the most wonderful guy in the world. I know we’ll get thru this rough time. 🙂

    Sadly, it was difficult to choose b/c many of them are difficulties for us. I would say, though, that dealing with families (specifically his, but occasionally mine, too) is the hardest part. This is what causes the most negative energy between us and I just wish there was some way that we could figure out a better way of handling it. Families are so hard.

    Finding quality time just together!  I wouldn’t say it’s an “issue” but it’s something that we need to work on.  We both work a ton and have lots of family obligations/spend a lot of time with family.  We need some undistracted time for just us!
