Rich....what great news!!! I am soooo excited for you! I have to admit...my last six years of marriage have been rocky...at best...but I will be completely honest in saying I wouldn`t change it for anything! One thing I have figured out is that respect and communication are key. Even if the communication starts with a fight or argument...always make sure you take a few minutes...breath...and come back with an open mind and a willingness to resolve or compromise on the issue before putting it to rest. You will only end up fighting about it again later if you don`t come up with something the first time.
Also...make sure that you all have lives beyond each other. Friends that you can lean on in tough times. Pals that you can grab a drink with when you need a break. "Til death do us part" is a VERY long time...and you should always make sure that BOTH of you have your own space and your own time for yourselves.
As for mixing it with your love for business! I would have to say that I hope she knows this about you before she accepted the ring!? Otherwise you may want to mention it before the wedding. It seems to me though...if she said yes...she is probably fully aware of your entrepreneurial desires. She is probably fully aware that this is part of who you are...and it may even be one of the reasons she loves you so much. My suggestion...sit down and talk to her about it. It is nice that you are seeking advice (and I am really glad you shared the news with all of us)...but I think this is something you should really discuss with her. Get her feelings, views, concerns out on the table. Let her know that you care enough to really take her feelings into consideration regarding your entrepreneurial ventures and desires. I am sure...if you open those lines of communication now...and keep them open...you will both be very content with each turn of the pages in your new life together!
Many MANY warm wishes and happy thoughts!
