What I like most about being married is having a constant companion. I have a loving man to share sorrows and joys with. I also love being able to make love to someone who cares deeply for me and the little world we have created. 

We had a terrible wedding so we are renewing our vows. I hope that it will be fun to put our plans in motion when the time comes next year. 

Everyone’s marriage has its own “nice things to look forward to.” You and your hubby will make your own unique happiness.

I think my favorite thing about being married is just falling asleep/waking up next to DH. We didn’t live together before marriage and we did long distance for a couple of years before the wedding. So just him being there next to me is my absolute favorite thing ever.

My favorite thing is having a whipping boy!! Obviously I’m kidding, Dh would never go for that 🙂

I love laying next to him at night having amazing pillow talk. I love having someone in the house who actually enjoys cooking (because I sure don’t). I love how we can just sit around on a lazy sunday and he’s watching TV, I’m on my laptop and he grabs my feet and starts rubbing them for no reason. I love that I don’t have to have “awkward” silence with him, we are both content with simply..silence.

I love everything about my marriage. Dh and I are total goofballs and we have our own secret language, that no one else understands. We can have a whole conversation and no one will know what the heck is going on…I think I love that the most!

we lived together beforehand so that day to day stuff hasn’t really changed.

what i love the most is seeing that wedding band on his finger and knowing that i put it there.  it makes me smile every time i see it on him.

There isn’t really much that has changed.

@veggie_rachel:  My favorite thing about being married is calling my DH, “my husband”. It sounds so definite, so concrete. 🙂

The thing I’m not crazy about? – Going through the name change process. I’m maiden name on half documents and married name on other half, kinda confusing. It’s quite a process but, it will be worth it in the end.

DH is my best friend and I love spending time with him. Just going through the day to day stuff is a blast. We are making it on our own and fit feels so good. His successes are our successes and vice versa. waking up with him is amazing even after living together for three years before getting married. I just know I have a partner in life.

I had a looming illness that smacked me down HARD shortly after the wedding.  I had to go to the doctor’s a bunch, the ER twice, do a million tests, and took medication that messed me up.  My DH was there for all of it.  He came home from work and did laundry & dishes when I was too sick to leave the couch all day, drove me to appointments, listened to my fears & reasured me.  Having him there made it all okay.  It wasn’t nearly as scary as it could’ve been.

 

So, I guess that’s my favorite thing.

DH and I didn’t live togethert before the wedding. In fact, we both lived with our parents til the wedding. Ha! So I LOVE going to bed and waking up WITH HIM. No more goodnights and goodbyes…it’s just us. Always.

I love that it feels like one huge sleepover with your best friend. This honeymoon phase is awesome. We do what we want. No kids to worry about, recently graduated from college and we just have our 9 to 5’s to keep us busy. So we are LOVING all this free time to just be with each other!

I love that I have someone to share chores with. 🙂 He does all the stuff I hate to do…fold luandry, emtpy the dishwasher, take out the trash, clean the tub…he is whipped! Haha. Just kidding. But I do really love having someone to split work with. So fun.

I love cooking for him, going out on dates and not caring “who pays” because it’s all coming from the same account, I love that you KEEP getting wedding gifts! Everything…everything…everything is so great about marriage. 🙂

WEDDING PLANNING IS OVER!!! Lol! There were some fun parts, but the small stuff near the end? Stress factory!!

Not much else is different, because we lived together before the wedding. We refer to each other as husband/wife, which is proving tough to get used to, and we are wearing wedding bands. I can’t think of much else!

We didn’t live with one another before the wedding, so I LOVE living with him.  It is so nice to be able to fall asleep and wake up next to him!

After dating for so long, being able to finally call him my husband and have that validation feels so great.

We moved in together shortly before the wedding and so it hasn’t changed too much in terms of day to day life, but there is some deeper connection that we feel now that we both just can’t explain

@mypinkshoes:  +1. Best thing about being married (we’ve been married for 5 days so far!!): seeing that ring on his finger makes me feel so secure- it lets me know that we are in it together, and that we are both committed to each other forever.

Worst thing about being married is that everything isn’t magically ever after! I still have to go to work, we still have to pay the bills, I’m not glammed up everyday, and I’ve still got to do my own hair everyday : S … haha.
