Bravotv.com: How was your life changed since your first year?
Samantha Abby: I think I enjoy life a little differently now. I'm going through it as a family and not as an individual anymore. Laura and I have grown closer as a couple. I think we understand our partnership more now than ever. I think we respect each other's independence and opinions and know how to collaborate when we need to.
Laura Leigh Abby: To be honest it hasn’t changed a lot. We’ve been a pretty strong team for a while now –- but we have been planning for our future more than ever and really considering how best to not only create but to raise a family together.
Bravotv.com: What did you learn from your first year?
SA: I learned how important family and friends are. It's not easy airing our all your dirty laundry to the public eye. The fact that we have such a strong support system through it all makes it all completely worth it. If anything I've learned how lucky we are.
LLA: That I may not be perfect but I chose the perfect wife.
Bravotv.com: Do you have any advice to new newlyweds?
SA: Remember to communicate with one another. You have "your" person now, someone who will be by your side for all the good and all the bad. If you don't talk to one another, they won't magically know whats wrong. If you communicate they will want to fix it.
LLA: Enjoy it! Marriage is a union of two into one, and it’s important to keep that in mind when you disagree or when times are tough. Communicate, be patient, and enjoy each other -- time flies!
