This weekend, Husband and I will be celebrating 6 months of marriage and it has been a blast. So, many people ask me:“how’s married life going?” My response is always “it’s like we’re dating but he doesn’t go home.” (Note: We didn’t move in together until after marriage)
Of course, marriage has its advantages: staying up too late to watch movies, late night snack runs, mini road trips and gossip sessions. Yes, I do gossip with my husband. In contrast, there have been a few challenges such as adding each other to various accounts and merging bills (annoying), having to share my closet space (annoying), and arguing over who’s the better grocery shopper (me). Side note: It took us 3 months to semi organize my our walk-in closet.
Ok, those aren’t real challenges. Maybe these: People volunteering marriage advice we didn’t ask for. We paid for premarital counseling from a professional and if needed, will schedule an appointment. Story time: A cousin (his) told him that if he ever gets upset, don’t leave me. Call him and they can grab a cup of coffee at Waffle House -_- We had been married for just a couple of weeks when he told us this… Oh and not all family have been supportive. I guess they think they are a part of the decision making process regarding if we have a wedding or not or when we should have it. Lastly, the influx of new family in friends has been overwhelming. I like most of the ones I already have and have a problem excepting new people. “No new friends”- Drake
Any who, I’m looking forward to the next 6 months and years with Husband. Happy Anniversary! Pssst…husband, are you going to kill me for this blog post?
