20 WEDDING ETIQUETTE QUESTIONS, ANSWERED BY PROS

What should you do if you don’t want to be a bridesmaid? What if you RSVPed yes to a wedding, and now you can’t make it? As a bride, are you required to give everyone a plus-one? Do you have to send handwritten thank-you notes, and how long do you have to do it? Clearly, attending—and throwing—a wedding doesn’t come without a million and one questions, many of which can veer into sticky, awkward, potentially friendship-ruining territory.

We talked to two pros—international etiquette expert Sharon Schweitzer, author and founder of Protocol & Etiquette Worldwide, and Michael Cerbelli, CEO and president of New York City wedding and event planning firm Cerbelli Creative, who worked on Billy Joel and Sir Paul McCartney’s weddings—to get their insight on the most fraught and sensitive wedding-related situations.

EIGHT HABITS COUPLES THERAPISTS SAY ALWAYS END A MARRIAGE

And no, having an affair isn’t on this list.

TALKING TRASH BEHIND EACH OTHER’S BACKS.

It might sound like advice on avoiding high school drama, but speaking in a mean-spirited way about your partner when he’s not around—not just poking innocent fun at his Star Wars obsession—is a red flag that, surprisingly, is pretty common, says Cole. And it could have a lot to do with your friends. “Women may fall into this habit if they’re surrounded by people doing the same thing,” she says. “If your close group of girl friends are constantly talking poorly about their own husbands, it may feel more normal for you to chime in and say, ‘You think yours is bad? Listen to mine.'”

But in reality, it shines a light on a deeper issue, says Cole. “It shows a lack of respect for him and your connection, even if he never finds out,” she says, and starts a pattern of negative comparisons that can lead to even more criticism and contempt. Before you know it, your relationship is in a fast, downward spiral. Continue reading

6 THINGS HAPPY COUPLES ALWAYS LET GO OF

While there are many secrets to getting along with the love of your life during the ugly and tense times, the number one thing you should embrace is the ability to just let stuff go. “You have to choose between being right or being happy,” says Claudia Six, Ph.D. “Happy couples let go of being right.” That good old “forgive and forget” mechanism is a majorly necessary component to any successful long-term relationship because it allows us to prioritize the future, instead of getting stuck in the past.

Here, six relationship experts share the things happy couples are able to put behind them, pronto.

  1. WHO’S DOING MORE

“Happy couples work as a team. They don’t sweat the small stuff, like who loaded the dishwasher yesterday and who made more money this month. They have a common goal and understanding of working together to live their best lives possible.” —Kelley Kitley, L.C.S.W and founder of Serendipitous Psychotherapy. Continue reading

Seeing your guy as your person – the one you want to share gossip or funny observations with – is essential, say Charles and Elizabeth Schmitz, psychotherapists and authors ofBuilding a Love That Lasts. “Good couples tend to view their partner as their best friend,” says Charles. “Having inside jokes and stories is part of what builds that bond.” That’s why it’s key to share funny anecdotes about your day, even if they’re as minor as your coworker freaking out because someone stole her Diet Coke from the communal fridge.

6 Tips to Not Be an Annoying Couple on Social Media

13We spend a good amount of our free time scrolling through Facebook and Instagram, and at least once a day we look at a post that makes us say “Oh god, why?” Everyone knows “that couple,” and you, my friend, are one beautiful new relationship away from sliding down the slippery slope into Annoyingville. (Population: You two.) Before you post, please abide by these rules for sharing your joy without ruining ours.

#1 We’re following you, not both of you.

Although this may seem impossible, some people want to keep up with the happenings of one member of the couple and not the other. It’s awesome that your boo is working sohard toward his goal of running a 5k, but we’d follow him if we wanted the full play-by-play. (We don’t.) Your ‘gram, your life. This is also a good time to note that “joint couple Instagrams” should be tried as a felony. Continue reading
