I feel like nothing has changed. But then again, I’ve only been married for about a month. Nothing feels any different.

I think it is even better.  I got married 9/6/14 and while nothing has changed,  Ilike calling him my husband.  🙂

We lived together for 2 years before we got married, I don;t know if because of that we didn’t really have an adjustment period.  It is as good as ever.

I love it, and DH has said the same.  He said people told him it’d be so hard, no fun, etc, and he loves being married 98% of the time (let’s just call the other 2% PMS and leave it at that haha!).  I wouldn’t go back to being single for a winning lottery ticket.  We were long distance, didn’t live together prior to being married, and finally getting to be together and move on with life was such a relief.  There was no big scary adjustment period that people always talk about…we just moved in and that was that 😉

It’s changed for the better! I feel like our relationship gets stronger every day. We’ve been together for 9 years and are closer than ever. It’s pretty cool being married.

abeautybride:  

My life has mostly changed for the better. I am happier and calmer than I was when I was single. I have fewer worries because my husband enjoys pampering me in different ways. 

There are times that I miss my complete freedom and independence. I can’t just do whatever I want without considering my husband’s feelings. For example, there have been times that I have stayed home with my husband instead of going out because he wanted to bond with me. My husband needs a lot more attention than I do so I am sensitive to that.

Everyone asks if married life is any different. Honestly the relationship hasn’t changed at all, but my perspective has. I didn’t expect to feel any differently but I feel much more certain about him, my life, the future.

I do sometimes still think about what my life would be like if we weren’t together. We have both been kind of unhappy with our living situation and I want to just sell up and leave, start new somewhere else. I really dislike that I have to wait for him to be ready to pull the trigger too, so to speak. I am trying to come to terms with the fact that I can’t always just do what I want.

I do think that he has slowly been giving up on the housework though… I better see to that before it gets too out of hand 😉

Hubby and I are currently in a long distance marriage. We have been together for 4 years now and stayed together fulltime for more than 3 of those years before we married. We met in a foreign country and he has since went back home in August after completion of his term and mine will only end in June 2015.

Apart from the distance issue everything is still the same. I think our love is blossoming like never before!! I just wish all will be well for ever.

I’ve only been married for a little over 2 months but…it’s all the same. Nothing has changed, my perspective is the same, and sometimes I honestly try to look for differences and cannot. Haha. Honestly, because I’m not planning on having children, it really is just the longest date I’ve ever been on :p (haha maybe an exaggeration but you know what I mean).

We’re happier 🙂  I love having a husband and he loves having a wife.  I also couldn’t wait to take his name.  Those were the only changes that came from marriage.

If you live together and treat money as OUR money rather than his and hers, I think the transition is practically non-existent.  For us, anyways….

We’ve only been married for a little over 2 weeks and nothing has really changed, except he calls me his wife and I call him my husband.  We have lived together for 3 years though, so there wasn’t any transition period for us but it does feel better knowing that we’re married and we’re loving it!

I think better! We lived together for two years before marriage, so that part stayed the same. Wedding planning was causing us to fight over the stupidest stuff, so with that aspect removed, it’s been so much smoother. Also, I just feel such a strong feeling of love for him. I loved him before we got married obviously, but there’s something about being married that makes our relationship stronger than ever.

abeautybride:  Almost 6 months and he still calls me his bride.  I’m not sure a whole lot has changed except me STILL changing my name everywhere. Lol! And I think we feel even more connected now that we’ve made our commitment official.
