: The most difficult year of marriage is the one you're in.

: Does it mean that the most difficult year of marriage is the year you get married?

No, it means that if you believe that successful marriages don't just happen spontaniously then every year is difficult because it takes work. I think this implies that every year presents new challenges that have to be met. I think it may also be a tad cynical.
