I'm actually finishing a Master's and applying to law school right now. My husband and I got married the summer before I started my grad program, and we relocated to a new state for school. I'll be honest, the first year was really rough. Just keep in mind that there might be other things that could stress you out, if you are changing locations and things like that. Honestly, after the first year things have gone much more smoothly! Part of the problem our first year was that my husband couldn't find a "real" job in his field so he ended up as a prep cook at a restaurant, while I was only earning the grad student stipend, so money stress was a big issue for us. If your spouse has a steady job, that should make life easier. Also, expect to fight about housework. Housework and finances seem to be the two main stressors for newlyweds.
I think the most important thing that other people have said is to make sure you carve out some time each week to spend together, and don't only talk about law school things when you're together.
