Married Life | 2 Weeks On
These past two weeks have absolutely flown by. I almost can’t believe it’s been two weeks since we got married. Except that I can because I know it was two weeks ago. Married life has been pretty darn good so far I must say and I think that’s because nothing has really changed. We already lived together, we already felt married, now it’s official. You see a lot of films and TV shows were they depict married life as something totally different to an out-of-wedlock relationship. It’s often seen as lots of arguments all of a sudden, “the first year of marriage is the hardest” is something you hear batted around a lot. Sure, that probably is the case if you marry someone when your relationship wasn’t that good to start with or if you get married quite quickly perhaps. I can see why the first year might be the hardest if you haven’t lived together before getting married or if you’ve only been together 6 months to a year.
For us though, we’ve been together for almost five years, lived together for just over 4 and engaged for just over 4 too. Getting married was the happiest day of our lives so far, apart from getting engaged and it’s made our relationship better if anything. I’ve finally changed my name everywhere which, I can tell you was quite the task. We’ve still got all of our wedding cards up and I can’t quite bring myself to take them down just yet. Other than that though I really don’t have anything to report. No massive changes. I don’t feel particularly different. I’m a Mrs now, a wife. I can buy things that say Mr and Mrs on them (and I have) but nothing has really changed as such.
I wouldn’t say things feel different, because really they don’t I don’t think. It’s only when I realise we have the same surname now and that I’m a Mrs instead of a Miss that I really think about it. Then I get a bit excited all over again. It’s also really nice to be able to call each other husband and wife. I like that a lot.
I wanted to do this post because I feel like you hear people say things like “marriage will change things”, a lot and I just don’t think that’s necessarily true. In our case, it’s not really changed anything apart from my last name and title. Oh, and we both wear wedding rings now too of course. Being married feels great, definitely makes me feel more grown up but as I’m turning 30 next Tuesday I suppose that’s to be expected!
Hope you enjoyed reading! Let me know how you felt 2 weeks after being married, did you feel particularly different?
