Other than the feeling of traveling with more freedom (aka Being the only one to choose what to do or where to go) and not having the responsability of cooking (aka Spending all my money on take-outs xD), not really.

….dressing less conservatively? Why do you have to dress more conservatively now?

No, I love coming home to my husband every day. I get the cooking thing though. My husband is kind of picky and likes boring food so that’s annoying sometimes like When I want to make a recipe but I know he wouldn’t like it. You could come up with an amount of money that you and your husband are comfortable with the other spending freely. For example, if you see something you really want while out shopping thats under x amount of money you two agreed upon you can buy it without checking with your husband first. Just an idea that I’ve heard some couples do. I feel like the advantages and great times of a relationship/marriage far outweigh the negatives for me.

Not married, but there is zero I miss about being single.

halfling:  Holy Hell, no. Not for a single minute. 

And my clothing choices haven’t changed one bit, either.

I never miss being single but I do ocassionally miss living alone. When DH is traveling I love cooking meals I know he would hate and eating whenever I want (instead of sticking to our normal schedule). I also love having complete control over the TV. However, those are small things to give up for being able to come home to someone who loves me everday.

By The Way, why did you have to change the way you dress? I tend to dress the same now as I did before.

I don’t see why you can’t do all the things you described whilst married :/ I’m not married yet but I’m enagaged and live with Fiance in a small apartment, and I wear what I want, buy what I want and cook what I want… and we have double the income for double the groceries.

The food thing is probably the biggest/only thing I miss. Sometimes I want SO bad to just eat frozen waffles or something for dinner, but DH rarely gives into that! When he’s gone I enjoy eating what I want, when I want, no judgement! I do eat better now though than when I was sinlge because it is easier to cook for two, so there is good and bad to it!

I’m not married, but I feel you! Not having to worry about what I’m cooking for dinner, meal plans, groceries, feeling like I should rush home to be with my SO and our kids, having protein shakes for dinner, being lazy with out feeling guilty, etc etc. And yes, I understand the dressing more conservatively! I didn’t dress provocatively in the first place, but I am definitely more aware now of what I’m “showing off”, as I feel like it is disrespectful to my SO to have too much leg or cleavage showing and having other men checking out the goods.

halfling:  Does your husband ever travel, or do you get alone time? It sounds like you might need some. My Fiance went interstate for a few days to visit family while I was working, and I’m not gonna lie, it was kind of fun having the house to myself, cooking dinners he hates and watching my TV shows nonstop. At the end of the four days I was more than ready for him to come home. I get my alone time because I get home from work earlier than him, and he gets two evenings to himself when I go to personal training and play netball. I think it’s essential to have a bit of time for yourself, to maintain your sanity.

I miss pigging out on junk food.  DH is on a pretty strict diet at the moment as he is ‘cutting’ (eating really, really clean).  He does bodybuilding/weightlifting so goes on really strict cutting diets from time to time, it drives me nuts because I love just eatting junk food.  Haha it sounds really bad, but it’s true.  I love it.

Anyway other than that there is nothing I miss. =)
