That all sounds very good, and relaxed is a nice thing! Sounds like you are off to a good start, and like you said, there may be some bumps in the road as you go along, just like any relationship, but as long as you all deal with them as they come along anything can be worked through. Openness and communication is key...and sounds like you have already been doing lots of that...Good luck!
