Are we still using spoiler tags for Lucina?

My first playthrough is going to be super casual (but on classic), and I'm just testing the waters as far as getting used to game mechanics and whatnot, so all my pairings are typically the first to start supporting. Currently I have Chrom and Sumia married, along with Virion and Sully. Not sure who to support with who yet.
Flak Jacket: Survive multiple rockets and grenades exploding by your feet, scratch from a knife to your shin insta-kills you, seems pretty legit.

The writer is mildly liberal with spoilers (doesn't treat them like spoilers, so you won't know they are spoilers until you get to that point in plot), but it contains some good tips. For an example, the Lightning Speed skill is important because it can essentially double the number of units on your side. But to get Lightning Speed on as many characters as possible, Avatar must be male and is restricted to one of three partners.
Honestly, I don't like other people telling me how to customize. That defeats the purpose of customizing.
It isn't too hard to get lightning speed on some key units. I don't particularly intend to follow the marriage guide myself either. However, I did luck out in that most of my decided pairings yield lightning speed to the units that I intend to use.
If I remember correctly, there are only three women that don't give lightning speed or the Pegasus Knight line from which the skill comes from, so you've got plenty of room to play around.
