The day to day, not a whole lot has changed (we were living together during our engagement), however it does feel different.  I definitely feel even more in love with him.  We definitely think even more about the future, especially financially (we are more careful about what we spend and are trying to save money).  We talk about having kids in the future more often- and so does everyone else- haha.  In fact, my husband who before the wedding wanted to wait 5 years wants to have kids right now- haha.  I’m not ready yet (he has always been a step ahead of me in our relationship since we started dating), but it is definitely something I’m more excited about.  There is a lot more figuring out things together.  We are the same health care plan now, and we get to spend all holidays together.   All logistic changes- and not really a transition, but for a couple that shared money and a home before marriage I was surprised that there were SOME changes in the way it felt.

abeautybride:  I don’t feel any different and I’m really surprised because we didn’t live together beforehand. I feel like I do on my birthday that I’d magically change since I’m a year older and I feel just like the day before. I do feel like I’d be very different if we divorced or separated though

Our family life hasn’t really changed we still have our routines and such. However, the 13 weeks we have been married he tells me everyday how much he loves me,  brings me breakfast in bed every Saturday and Sunday. His hugs feel warmer. And I absolutely love calling him my husband! He is an amazing person with such a big heart. I’m so happy and everything just feels right.

Better.  Easier.  My best friend is here to support me in even more ways than before.  I’m extremely high strung (severe GAD & panic disorder & severe major clinical depression).  Dh is very even keeled, which is usually a balm to me.

My marriage is the ipone aspect of my life that doesn’t cause me any anxiety.

We have only been married 2 months. It feels like a lovely warm blanket in the winter time, haha! It is comforting to me. I feel much more relaxed now.

Not a whole lot has changed, but it does feel really special to be married. I felt secure before, but now even more so. It’s nice to know that you found someone who loves all of you and wants to spend the rest of their life with you.

I truly love it. Married 5 months today. This is my “safe place” to be as mushy as humanely possible without dealing w the side eye from friends. There’s nothing more awesome! Since getting married I think our relationship has gotten even stronger. We are growing together and helping each other be better people. Planning for the future, trying to save money… It’s amazing to marry someone who is your best friend, getting to have a sleepover every night is so rad 😉 ok, I’ll stop now.

Been legally married a year, wedding 5 months ago. Honestly nothing’s really changed except I feel really, really secure. And relieved wedding planning is over. Oh and I’ve put on a little happy weight haha! Can’t wait to move on to the next step and ttc, but I’m trying to just relax and enjoy life as it is for now 😀
