This story originally appeared on Redbook.com.
The walk down the aisle, the "I do's," the first dance, cutting the cake—these are the highlights of a wedding. But what happens after the guests have gone home and the honeymoon is over?
That's what documentary filmmaker Doug Block set out to find. For years, Block earned extra money by filming weddings, 112 in total. Now, he's made112 Weddings, a documentary premiering June 30 on HBO, in which he revisits 12 couples to see how their marriages have turned out.
Many movies make the wedding day the happy ending, but Block thought the wedding would be a more interesting place to start. And after sitting down with so many couples, he toldTIMEthat he has plenty of marriage advice.
"Pick wisely is the best advice," he says. "You'd better find somebody who feels like your jokes are funny."
But you can't really prepare for the that is marriage, because life is unpredictable, Block says. That means it's important to be flexible and accept that neither you nor your spouse is perfect.
For Block, in the ideal marriage, you grow together, not apart.
