The beginnings of my married life was different because we were still in an LDR and only saw eachother once, so needless to say…it SUCKED…alot!  And every single person who asked me how married life was knew of our situation.  I really wanted to remind them that they needed to think before they asked because seriously…how do you think married life is when you’re almost 1000 miles apart and can’t see eachother.  I kept my mouth shut though. lol

I’m with those who say it’s pretty much the same as living together, but I’ll add that except now I get to call him my husband so that’s nice. I’ve had a few people who were shocked by that response (mostly who have never lived with anyone or didn’t before marriage) who expect me to say it’s awesome and amazing and so different. But really, we knew before marriage that we wanted to spend our lvies together, so emotionally it’s not different.

Yeah, I think most people want to know whether it’s different, so if you say “Great, about the same as before we got married” or say some funny cute way in which it’s different like “Well I’ve noticed a lot more socks laying around!” that will satisfy people.

I always say its great. If the person wants more I talk about how smooth the transition has been. We were in an LDR our entire dating relationship. I moved across the country 4 weeks before the wedding so there has been a ton of change for me. It really has been a much easier transition than I was expecting.

I usually make a joke out of it.  My response is typically – “It’s really great! (because it is) And when you’re married, that’s always the answer”  Then they laugh and move along in the conversation.

i just say “it’s good”.

I should try “I hate him!” on an unsuspecting victim. Wink

I always say amazing. Because it is amazing. Yes, we was together years before we got married. Yes, we lived together before we got married. But being married is so much different. It feels different, it feels amazing. So when asked how is married life I say it is amazing! If someone asks how are you guys doing I say great. But how is married life? AMAZING!

I always say, “Awesome. I never knew it could be so awesome. I’m very lucky to have met someone later in life that is this awesome.” They either smile with happiness for me or smile with a hidden “you just wait…” I just smile back, because I know that while things might change, we’ve both have been to hell and back and will never allow our marriage to get that bad.

I say “Fabulous! Just like before the wedding but without the time-suck of wedding planning.”

I usually smile/laugh and say ‘way better than before, since we’re no longer planning a wedding!’ I found wedding planning to be very stressful and I love being able to enjoy each other and not having to deal with guest lists and budgets. Most people just smile and say ‘good point!’

 

ETA: Corgi, just saw you posted the same thing right as I was typing my message. Glad I’m not the only one!
