HappyBox: Know someone who just got engaged? They NEED this!
Welcome to The First Years of Marriage Newsletter! We talk about the conversations, challenges, and changes that begin once the honeymoon ends.

Top Marriage Advice from Our Archives
We’ve been writing this sweet little newsletter for over a year and to celebrate, we’re pulling our top five posts from the archives for you to dive into or give a second read. These are not only our most-read posts, but the ones that we received the most messages about. Perhaps that’s because some of the topics are taboo or because some of the topics were just super relevant to people who were in need of a pick-me-up after the wedding ended. Either way, we hope you enjoy these top posts and maybe even share them with someone else you adore!

Meet This Week’s Sponsor: Clay
Today’s newsletter is brought to you by Clay, a beautiful and private digital rolodex intentionally designed to help you be more thoughtful with the people who matter to you.
Before I started using Clay, being thoughtful and remembering important details about the people in my life relied on my own memory, as well as a mix of spreadsheets, notecards, contacts apps, and CRMs. In addition to being difficult to manage, this approach lets important relationships, moments, and context fall through the cracks.
But when you log onto Clay, you enter your very own personalized home for the people that matter to you, empowering you to remember important moments and information. Clay uses your calendar, email, iMessage, Twitter, phone contacts, and LinkedIn to create one source of truth for your relationships. Take notes, set reminders, get notified when people are in the news, and more.
I use Clay not only to foster relationships with friends and acquaintances but also to show up prepared for so many different business situations, whether it’s to be prepared for a meeting, to search my network to find a mentor, or to stay on top of important details about the important people in my life.
