If only the answer to every marital question were as easy as aI do!a For many couples the challenges of planning their nuptials are a piece of (wedding) cake compared to what comes after: How do we merge our financesaor do we? Do we need to spend every free minute together? And how do we decide where to spend our first Thanksgiving? Online wedding community TheKnot.com was fielding so many questions like these from their newly married members that they were inspired to create an entirely new siteaTheNest.comadedicated to the unique issues that face people in the first few years of marriage. A 24/7 virtual married-best-friend-whoas-been-there-before, the site and its thousands of just-married members dish out advice on everything from how to get your permanent roommate to pick up his or her dirty socks, to how to inspect a property when youare buying your first home, to foolproof guidelines for entertaining the in-laws. Unlike single friends (who donat have the experience to give tried and true advice) or Mom (who has lots of experience but tends to give too much advice), Nesties share their experiences with no strings attachedaand free of the worries that come with real-world friendship. Now the editors of The Nest have brought together the very best of this hard-won knowledge, plus their own astute insights into the early years of marriage, to create a unique resource for navigating the sometimes bumpy road of marriage. Touching on everything from money to sex and starting a family, they go where no etiquette book or self-help manual has gone before, providing real-life solutions for the myriad problems even the happiest couple can encounter when two become one. The first in a series of books for any couple who wants every day of their new lives together to be as fulfilling and meaningful as the day they walked down the aisle, The Nest Newlywed Handbook goes beyond platitudes and pep talks to explore the many rich rewards of married life. An offshoot of the hugely popular wedding website The Knot, The Nest started out as an online community of girls grappling with the emotional issuesaand enormous to-do listsathat come with the first years of marriage.
