I just got married August 9th and moved in with my husband. Everyone always asks us, “how’s married life?”
For anyone recently married or who remembers, what was it like the first few months after getting married? Good? Bad? What you expected? Also, had you lived together before getting married?

For us it’s exactly the same. We’ve been living together over a year and married nearly two months. It’s lovely!

We’d known each other so long, nothing really changed. It’s been great.

People have been asking me that too, and I just stare at them. We had been living together for over four years before the wedding… Nothing has changed, lol.

maiapal: I didn’t vote because I’m technically not married yet (4 more weeks). However we have been living together for 3 years alreadY so we anticipate that not much will change after the wedding.. Besides my name lol. On the otherhand, I believe it would be really tricky if we were moving in together for the first time. When we first started living together it was absolute hell for the first 6 months. I don’t think it was because we were incompatible.. More so because we needed time to get use to each other and work out a routine.
If you’re finding it tough living together at first.. Try to persavere because I promise it will get better 🙂 xx

- Wedding: March 2014 - A castle!
Married 7 months and it’s been bliss! Actually nothing really changed, but I think we have a great relationship 🙂

Something intangible has happened in our relationship and we are in some sort of twilight zone of bliss that hasn’t disappeared even after 5 months. And that’s even though we’d been living together almost two months before we got married 😛
ETA: we had a really rocky and stressful time leading up to the wedding – not with each other but mainly with family and I had some serious health issues for over a year. The fact that all this stress had cleared out has probably congributed to this zen like state of bliss! Lol

- Wedding: April 2013 - Valparaiso, IN
I’ve been married for a year and 5 months. So far it really has been great. We had never lived together or had sex before marriage, so there was a lot of new stuff to get used to. But I have loved getting to know my husband more. We have our ups and downs, but even those make me love him more.

We lived together for more than a year before marriage, and things just got even more awesome after the wedding. There was something magical about being married. Things felt deeper, calmer, and even more secure than they did when we were engaged.

lovekiss: I totally agree with everything you said. I’d been living with my husband for about 1 1/2 years when we got married- together for 6 years when we got married. But something changed when we got married- I can’t describe it. It’s such an awesome feeling. We’ve been married for 2 1/2 years now (OMG!!!) and we both still feel like newlyweds.

We’ve been living together for almost 4 years & we are already parents to an almost 3 year old son so the only thing that should change is my & my son’s surnames.

It’s stayed the same, but we lived together for 2.5 years before the wedding. I imagine there could be some transitions to get used to if you were moving in at the same time you got married.

The first months of our marriage were wonderful, passionate, and warm. Then we had a baby and got all tired, lol. He is still the best man I know, and I am very lucky to be his wife. As a boon, he is an amazing father.

nanoinfinity: They’re probably just being polite and making small talk. You really just stare at them when they ask you that?
