@sherryberry:  Well, we have been together for over 10 years (married for 2 1/2 months). We also lived together for 5 years before marriage. So, not a lot has changed…which I like. 

Of note, he is finally getting his finances in order because we are planning to buy a house. Fortunately, he has never been financially irresponsible, but he was never very pro-active about it. Now, he knows his credit score (thankfully it’s excellent) and he is working on setting up his auto savings and re-establishing his retirement contributions.

He is also much more willing to discuss finances more often, which I am thankful for. Before, we would discuss it once a month and he was not very enthusiastic about it. Now, we talk about them every other week and is much more participatory and excited.

He’s definitely good at telling me what I can/can’t eat! But I think that’s a pregnancy thing, not a married thing (because seriously if he doesn’t stop after this baby is born I will wreck him)

I think he’s gassier. But that’s it! Same old DH.

He hasn’t really. He’s the same as he ever was.

He wants love and attention more. It works for me cos I love cuddles and kisses, but he was never overly affectionate. He also came home really upset the other night because he forgot to wear his wedding ring. I told him it wasn’t the worst thing ever and he lightened up, but he always puts it on after he showers now 🙂

married after dating for 7 years:  if its possible he seems to love me more! hes more affectionate in public and alone. He never used to like pda but hes surprizing me alot. Hes also more adventurous in bed; hes def not afraid to try new things. not that he really ever was. but he also works harder. Hes also expressed his sensitive side more.

Not much has changed. We didn’t officially live together beforehand, but I crashed at his place for several months though. We have now joined our bank accounts, so we talk more about money, insurance, and all those things. He has also been spending more time taking care of me by doing things like changing the oil in my car.

My DH is the same! I love that he wears his ring all the time and never takes it off considering he has never worn a ring and said before we got married he wasnt going to wear it! He is still the same awesome guy that cooks and cleans 🙂

Together for 7 years, living together for 6 years, married for a little over a month…

Not much has changed.  The only thing I can think of is he seems more excited to introduce me to people as his wife and tell them all about our wedding & honeymoon…but then again, it’s still very new to us. 

We also bought a house the day before the wedding, so the past month has been crazy busy with moving and family/friends stopping by to see our new home.  We haven’t had a whole weekend day of “just us” since the honeymoon. lol

We’re not married yet, but even after getting engaged my Fi changed a bit. We’ve lived together for 4 years and have always discussed finances, but never shared our money. We still dont have a joint account but he’s more inclined to discuss things with my before deciding. He’s much more “mushy” wants to cuddle lots, and is more affectionate. he also doesnt squirm when i mention “our kids”. I never said “our kids” until we got engaged, but just mentioning “some day, when I have kids” would make him a little squeemish, but not anymore! It’s great!

@sherryberry:  haha I know!!! kids were never something FI desired too much, but it wasn’t an option for me, I have wanted kids since I was really young. we talked about it years ago and I said it wasn’t something I could compromise on, so he had to figure out what he wanted. Since then he’s been a bit squirmy, never said anything but I could tell it wasn’t something he was really looking forward to, that he was just doing it for me. But now thats gone! I dont know if he’ll ever be over the moon excited about it, he’s mostly scared I think. But I LOVE not having to tip-toe around the subject and actually talk about how we’d do certain things when we have kids! It’s a miracle really! Lol

That’s so exciting that your husband is the same way! Eeeeeeeeeeee babies!!!!! Lol
