People grow and change, and so do relationships. While you can't say exactly how things will change, you can at least know where those changes might occur.

8 women reveal what they wish they knew before getting married

1. Sex gets better after a while.

"I wish I knew that sex gets better with time. Everyone says sex is only good at first, but we've found that it actually gets better as we get older. " –Sandra.

2. There are downsides to living with someone.

"When you live with someone on a permanent basis, you really understand what it's like to live with another person. Some things are not pleasant." – Tracy.

3. Learn how to communicate.

"Communication styles for men and women are so different. I wish I knew that trying to change the way the other person communicates wouldn't necessarily work for long. Of course, I'll still try!" —Lea.

4. It's all about the money.

"Money can be a major issue in a marriage, and men and women are completely different in how they handle money." — Julie.

5. There is no place like home.

"I wish I knew what it would be like to live with an extrovert. When you first meet someone, you're drawn to their personality, especially in social situations. Living with a man full-time and seeing that how he is different in home situations can be very interesting. ” – Laura.

6. It's harder than it looks.

"You realize after a few years that you don't necessarily feel the same way about the person. If the marriage is going to survive, it's going to take a lot of effort from both people." – Beatrice.

7. Everything changes.

"I wish I'd known the changing roles we'd play in marriage. You can talk about what you're going to do when you get married, but some things just change over time, especially when you have kids." - Jeanne.

8. Family is eternal.

"It would have been nice to know that being a step-dad would be different in marriage than when we were dating. I guess it's true that when you get married, you're actually marrying a whole family besides your husband. " –Brianne.
