We’re both 23 and it feels so weird to say husband!!  I still feel like I’m 16 most of the time.

His dad put a wedding picture up on Facebook and titled it “the new Mrs. lastname” and I said to DH “Noo!! Mrs. lastname is your GRANDMA!”

Haha.  It’s strange.

The “Mrs.” thing gets me too. Our marriage is still new so even the “wife” thing is a little weird but I’m getting more used to it. I definitely feel old though. We’re both 25 and more than responsible enough to wed (we’ve been together for 7 years) but it just feels like something that grown ups do. Sometimes I have to remind myself that I am one of those now. Ahhh… the days of little responbsibility.

Still feels ridiculous to call him my husband. I’m 27, but our “courtship” was super fast! (we knew each other a little less than a year when we got married :)) So that could be part of it. I’m wondering how long it will take before it feels normal.

I feel you! I’m not married yet, but I make fun of the word “fiancé” in a deep and slow voice. He, however, loves it. When we’re alone, he likes to call me his “future wife”. When I hear him say “wife”, I kind of twitch a little. It sounds so… Bizarre. although, I’m quite looking forward to being one!

 

embarassing: I said “babe, when we’re adults,….” in all seriousness. he was a little offended. He is 29. It’s never crossed my mind about being “adult” until recently. I just refer to us and our peers as “girls and guys”. Being called a woman even strikes me odd!

Being 22 and 23 we are young and I always feel like a kid “playing grown-up” when I say Mr. Hedgie is my husband. It doesn’t help when people as how long we’ve been married and I tell them 3 months. Usually “Newlyweds? So cute!” While I get the sentiment isn’t at all mean. It feels like something you would say to a little kid.

I definitely feel like an impostor when I refer to DH as my husband! It’s like, woah, when did I get one of those! I like calling him husband when it’s just us, but around other people, it feels weird. 

I also am still getting used to writing DH instead of Fiance. πŸ™‚

I’m 41, he’s 42 and we’ve been married 1 year and it still feels strange sometimes. I don’t think it matters how old you get, part of you will always feel like a 15 year old.

We’re around the same age as you guys, married 6 months, and it STILL feels weird. He has no problem with it, but I do feel weird/old(?) calling him my ‘husband’. The Mrs. thing I haven’t gotten used to either! Then again, ‘fiance’ also felt weird, though I think that may be because I find that word pretentious (but don’t know exactly why.)

@Mrs Hedgehog: I feel you. I don’t like telling people how long we’ve been married either. I want to say something obscure like… “oh, 20 years! Goes by so quickly!” haha…

Oh, yes!  What gets me is people (especially those older than me, outside of my work environment) calling me Mrs. Hislastname.  It’s one thing for a 7-year-old student to call me that; it was very strange to have a car salesman significantly older than me constantly refer to me by Mrs. Hislastname.  And I’m 26, so not exactly a child bride over here.  πŸ˜›

I definitely feel that way. I am 26, and someone was shocked the other day when I mentioned my husband. I admit, I do look younger than I actually am. Usually I just say his name!
