Not much has really changed since we got married.  Just sort of a feeling that we have a responsibility to and for eachother now.  But nothing in our day-to-day lives has changed other than saying husband/wife.

I’m thinking the same thing you’re thinking!   I can’t imagine how things will change day-to-day after we’re married.  I guess we’ll find out!  Seems to me like the only thing changing is my last name

We’re on the same wave length.  I don’t really think much will change.

We’ve been living together for 5 years, so I suspect little will change on the homefront, but we do expect little changes like taxes, calling each other husband and wife, etc… Really the marriage is just there to seal the committment we already have for each other.

We’ll actually have money again. I’m looking forward to that. Otherwise, I don’t see a whole lot changing. We’ve been living together for 6 of the 7 years we’ve been together, so it’s all old hat. 🙂

Not much! Besides the inevitable long process of changing names. And -powersthatbewilling- start a family. 🙂

I have to agree with you all.  I also think it’s just the knowing we are officially a married couple, he will be my husband and I’ll have a new name is about all.  We already feel like we are a married couple, but since we haven’t had the traditional ceremony and paperwork it will feel even more in place.  I don’t know, I guess it’s a little hard to explain.  I just know I’ll love it!

We’ve only been living together since November so we are still adjusting.  We still need work out the bank accounts/money type things.  Other then that though I don’t think much more will change.

we’ve only been living together since august 2009, but already, i feel like we are like all you bees above… married… LOL.

i concur with the majority… nothing will change besides calling each other husband/wife, changing my last name, and doing our taxes together next year!

i think the wedding day will make things “official,” but we’re already committed in our day to day lives… all i know is that we’re gona be crazy busy with work and grad school… that time is going to FLY BY before and after the wedding.

I have thought about this too.  My Fiance and I have been living together for almost 6 years.  I’m not sure that much will change, as far as the dynamics of our relationship goes.  I think the only thing that will really change is his insurance, which will be mine.  And, shortly after the wedding we’ll be moving to another state (yikes).

i thought the same thing, that nothing would change. but there really is a feeling, not something you can explain.

and for me, i had major baby fever. we were just waiting for the wedding to be able to start ttc, and i really didn’t care too much about the wedding. now i get to get to the good stuff.
