9 Tips On How To Be Married by Jackie Pilossoph for Chicago Tribune Pioneer Press

I recently had lunch with a friend, who uttered four words that stuck in my head long after I left the restaurant: “Marriage is really hard.”


Want Financial Security After Divorce?


My friend told me not to worry – that after a year and a half of marriage, she and her husband weren’t headed to divorce court. However, she said that when they tied the knot, neither one had any idea that marriage was far from a cakewalk.
