NAIJ.com breaks down the years in marriage, from the easiest to the most challenging.
1. Three years

2. Five years

The kid(s) are still young and require a lot of attention and care. It becomes a tad difficult for both parents to combine work, family and other important aspects of their lives. As a matter of fact, except they are both experts at parenting, which is unlikely, this is a tough period in every marriage.
3. Seven years
If the partners managed to stay together for five years, they have to overcome one more point. The seventh year of life together is the time when everything becomes a routine. There might be different issues connected with money, children and other things but none that should overwhelm two people who are determined to be together.
4.Ten years and beyond
This is the most difficult period of the marriage and if the couple has managed to go through it together, they will become a strong and happy family.
To keep your family, you should be very patient and wise. You should really love your soulmate and value them. Remember, that everything depends on you and your happy marriage is only in your hands.
