Seriously, how do you answer this question? DH and I have been married for almost 6 months and we get this question ALL THE TIME. I never really know what to say! I say things are great and then there’s this awkward silence that I don’t know how to fill.
It just makes me laugh cause everyone and their mother asks us this.

@irin997: haha, me too! good wedding date, btw 😉
I usually say, great, fine, well we aren’t divorced yet, lasted longer than the Kardashians – depends who they are.
I know they mean well, but it does get annoying, because how do they expect you to answer? Oh my God I hate him! I want a divorce!

@irin997: We also get this question all. the. time. My intial response was Wonderful, thanks! … but it did then create some weird back forth of ‘oh great!’ ‘yeah’ ‘okay’ so I switched it up and now I say “Wonderful! SO much cheaper than wedding planning life!!!” That usually works as a nice flow bc then they laugh and say something like “yeah, i bet hahaha”…
It’s become my go to 🙂

I always answer with ” *pause* …. It’s the same as before we go married”.

We’ve only been married almost 2 months and we also get that question all the time. I think people are just trying to make conversation and that’s something they think of since it was a big recent event that happened in your life. I usually just say It’s great too when someone asks that. I think they also may want to know if anything has changed.

I say it’s the same as it was before married – it’d just be more expensive to leave 😉

Well I think the permanent grin that is plastered to my face is answer enough, but if pressed I will get all sappy about how much I love being married to Mr. LK and how “husband” is my absolute favorite word in the English language. What can I say? I’m so head over heels in love that it’s disgusting…. and I love it!

I always say “It’s amazing!” and then most people say, “OMG amazing?”. And I say “Yep, AMAZING!”

I always just say “It’s going great! No different than before we got married, so I guess that’s a good sign!”
It’s just one of those things people ask to try to make conservation. Like talking about the weather or asking how your day is going.

When it’s the pastor/old people at church, who must ask us every Sunday: “Great! We’re very happy!” And sometimes I add something sarcastic, like “I still haven’t killed him!” or “I think I’ll keep him for a little longer.”
With friends who aren’t married I’m a bit more serious. With jaded married people I tend to sing my husband’s praises.

I say, “Awesome, its the same but different”.
Then they ask me what that means. And I say that he is the same wonderful man before marriage, but now I get to view him as my husband and there is a few extra perks.
I’m only almost a month in and I had one woman ask me if I still liked my husband and how things are in the bedroom…I nearly fell over!

“Pretty much the same as engaged and living together life. Except now we have a dog!”

I say things are great/wonderful/amazing – any positive adjective. then people will ask sometimes if things changed after we got married and i say “yes, for the better”. then it gets awkward when they want to know how so. i am just not sure how to put it in words, its just better, like we are even closer and more committed than before. and who would have thought was even possible!
