After 10 years of marriage, it is important to remember that you are just getting started. The future of your marriage lies like an open ocean before you with land still visible behind. You’ve come just far enough to know you need to pause, and determine whether you're on the right track or not and to make any required course corrections. By working through this checklist of topics to revisit, you can help ensure that your future is happier and healthier than your past. Children. Ten years into your marriage is a good point in time to assess the number of children you’ll have. Many couples in recent years have been waiting longer to have children. You may ﬁnd yourself without kids at this point and you’ll want to decide whether or not to have (or adopt) some. Finances. With the bright-eyed enthusiasm of newlyweds, you may have had a different expectation for where you’d be today than where you ﬁnd yourselves. Now is a great time to recalibrate and reset expectations. Financial happiness has much more to do with expectations than with the actual amount of money you have. Home. Ten years into your marriage is a great time to look at where you are living. Moving frequently is counterproductive to your family’s wellbeing and to your ﬁnancial situation, but taking stock of where you are in life and how well your home serves your family makes good sense. Consider upgrading and remodeling before moving. Friends. At this point in your lives, you’ve likely made the complete transition from your single group of friends to your married group of friends. With any luck, some of your single friends made the transition with you. Take stock of your relationships and make it a point to reach out to people who should be a bigger part of your life but who’ve faded into lesser roles. Extended family. Be sure to look at your extended family — especially those who were part of your immediate families when you were both growing up — to ensure you are actively seeking to build those relationships as a couple. Your parents certainly wish to see and hear from you more than they do.
