I got married back in December and it just started to sink in during the last week or two.

I don’t think it’s not having the big ceremony/dress and all… Got married in January, and when you come back home, everything feels normal, as you said, except for the fact that it’s different legally.. Especially if you have been living together like a married couple.

I guess there will come a point where it will sink in!

I don’t know…i’ve been married for 6 months and it still hasn’t sunk in yet…our lives are very much the same as they were before we were married…like you we had already been living together for a couple of years…so immediately after the wedding we took a little mini 3 day vaca (we didn’t take our real honeymoon until 3 months after the wedding) and it was back to work like normal…so who know’s when that feeling will really sink in…

I’m still getting used to it. It’s a bit odd referring to my ‘husband’ instead of my ‘fiance.’ It’s odder when my husband calls me his ‘wife.’ If anything, getting engaged was a bigger immediate shift. I suppose the engagement was more of a surprise, whereas we had tons of time to prepare for being ‘married.’

It’s probably a gradual thing, and one day it will just seem normal!

congrats!  if it’s anything like getting engaged, it probably sinks in when it feels “normal” and not new! It may even happen for you after the wedding in October when all the excitement settles down…just enjoy the new and exciting for now and congrats again!

My husband still frequently calls me his girlfriend, and we’ve been married since July! The week after our honeymoon felt so surreal because we were back to real life, but we were MARRIED.
