It seems like when you get married, or are even thinking of getting married, people fall all over themselves to try to give you advice about it, even if you didn’t ask.

…maybe especially if you didn’t ask.

And unsurprisingly, a lot of it turns out to be bad.

A ton of people chimed in after this prompt on Twitter. Let’s see what “words of wisdom” really aren’t.

10. Hard work

Isn’t this supposed to be like, an enjoyable part of my life?
Why should I expect it to be so miserable?

9. The good fight

Believe it or not there are ways to communicate that don’t involve constant quarreling.

8. Sexpectations

Believe it or not there are other things.

7. You are his

In a romantic sense, sure, in an ownership sense, nope nope nope nope nope.

6. The conversion rate

I guess it probably depends on how seriously you each take your faith.

5. Don’t get comfy

So you want me to spend the rest of my life uncomfortable?

4. You’ll always wonder

Yeah, this seems like a sad justification.

3. Happy wife, happy life

This mentality has always sort of reeked of “marriage is all about running around trying to make sure your wife isn’t angry” and painted, for me, a pretty grim picture of the idea.

2. Just kidding

Pretty absurd and insulting.

1. Hit the joint

Some couples find that keeping general finances separate saves them a lot of headaches.

So, if you want some good marriage advice, maybe just follow the opposite of all that.

What’s the worst advice you’ve ever gotten?
