Getting engaged has spurred a lot of marriage advice coming my way. I don't mind it at all -- it's actually great to hear people's perspective and the insights that only experience can bring.

But the best guidance I've received to date came from my 11-year-old (soon to be) nephew. He explained that it really comes down to 3 things:

  1. Read lots of books.
  2. Wear lots of deodorant.
  3. If you sleep diagonally, get your own bed.

No doubt, he's wise beyond his years.
