You thought you knew exactly what you were getting yourself into when you stood under that chuppah? You thought you knew exactly who you were marrying? You were very wrong!

After the wedding, the chosson and kallah will find plenty of surprises inside their envelopes, some pleasant and some harder to swallow, some now and some years down the line.

It doesn’t matter if you meet two times or two hundred times, everybody gets surprises once they are married. It takes a lifetime to know a person because everyday we are growing and changing. There is no such thing as a perfect match because there are no perfect people.

And so, don’t worry when the day after sheva brochas you discover that your husband is the messiest man on the planet, or your wife cries more than a newborn baby.


Don’t be paralysed by the things that unexpectedly pop out of that envelope. Enjoy discovering new things about the other half of your soul, yourself and your marriage. Enjoy the surprises.
