… shower together. Does anyone else do this? Since I moved in with Fiance about a year ago, I can count on one hand the number of showers I have taken alone (in our own house). Is this normal? Weird?
What things do you hope you as a couple keep doing after you’ve been married for years?

Totally normal. We do this a lot. Not all the time though since we do shower on different schedules.
I hope that we go to sleep in each other’s arms like we do now. My mom’s best friend’s husband’s parents went to sleep every night holding hands and they were married for like 60 something years. Every night I cuddle up to my husband and fall asleep next to him while he watches something on his laptop (he stays up later than I do). I hope that we continue doing that forever.
Also our secret handshake.

As often as we can, we do, which actually works out to quite a bit! I think its one or two days a week that we don’t. Its some of our “private” time to just spend with each other without worry. I really hope it doesn’t go away, until kids come along, then I’ll understand.
I hope we keep our dinner routine. No matter what time he gets home from work, I wait to eat with him and he tells me about his day. We also go out to breakfast every Sunday. We always try new places, but we have never not gone since starting to live together.

Showers are one of our favorite things. Im working on house plans (a small cottage close to our summer work) and it includes a nice big shower for the two of us.

We like to but our shower sucks for it. The shower on our honeymoon was great!
I’d say 99% of the time we go to bed together and I love this. Even if one of us watches a bit of tv or reads it is nice to snuggle up while we fall asleep.

Yep. We’ve been showering together for years. It saves water!
And we carpool to work together most days. I like that we have so much time together. We spend the drive to/from work discussing our day, going over upcoming events/appointments, and then unwinding together on the way home. It works for us.

We do! But I am hoping over time it becomes less frequent…. not because I don’t like it, I just like the “me” time. It’s where I can really be alone and decompress.

Haha I like my showers too hot! Whenever we do shower together he jumps back and screams “Ahhhhh!” I hope we still cook together…and hold hands while we drive!

Always go grocery shopping together! Its fun to plan our meals together and it makes it so its not a chore. I hope we always will do this.
As for showering we do sometimes, but not often. The water preasure in our house is not great and the showers small so one person just ends up being cold most of the time 🙂
@Mrs.RDV: We do this too and I love it!

We don’t shower together but we each like the water at completely diff temps! When we were on our honeymoon, we had a shower with two shower heads and that was fun because we each got the temp we like. We also bathed in the jacuzzi together and while it was nice, I really wanted my “me” time like someone else said. Baths are so relaxing for me to just unwind.
I do really hope that we continue to grocery shop together. It’s one of my favorite parts of the week and I love looking up new recipes to try and he likes cooking them!
I also hope that wea always scratch each other’s backs. Literally, we will sit there for a good 10-15 min each just scratching each other’s back. I also hope that I always scratch his head when he’s having a hard time sleeping. His mom did that for him when he was little and she died when he was 7 and I’m the first person to do it for him since then so I hope I never stop! lol
I wish that we still fell asleep together but that stopped when I started back school last fall and HAD to go to bed way later than him. He doesn’t have a laptop so he would stay up on his desktop. Now that it’s summer again though I’m able to stay up later with him.

I like that Darling Husband and I can make any situation fun! We are always told how playful and fun we are. A recent silly example, we had a customized blind company come to our home. We were picking out blinds (pretty boring and expensive) and we were joking around and laughing and just having a good time. The consultant kept saying that she has never seen a couple so comfortable, sweet and fun with eachother.
We are told this a lot by people. I love that we can make daily life so fun.
we dont really take showers together. We both get too cold when we have to wait on the other person, I dont like it. But we usually sneak a peak in at eachother when the other person is in the shower! 😀

Oh so many things, but we’re newly weds, so everything is fun and exciting to me! 🙂
One of my faves – he has to get up for work much earlier than I do, but I wake up with him anyway so that I’ll be tired at the same time and we can go to bed together. When his alarm goes off, I always hit the snooze button and we find each other and cuddle during the snooze sleep time before dragging ourselves out of bed. At night we typically fall asleep cuddled together as well but at some point in the night migrate to our sides of the bed. Haha.
We also call each other ‘babe’ and very rarely by our actual names, to the point where it is weird for me to say his actual name. The only time I ever really do is when we’re in a crowded place and I’m trying to get his attention – shouting out his name instead of babe feels much like when you’d say your parent’s name instead of ‘mom!’ or ‘dad!’ when trying to get their attention.

@MrsTahoe: Ahh you reminded me! We hardly ever say each other’s names either. I hope that never stops as well 🙂

Yup. Every morning. I love these moments. I also love when we both wake up to a rainy morning. We like to just lay there and cuddle and listen to the rain.

MilksMom lol, same here, i don’t think anyone in the world likes their water as hot as i do in the shower but Fiance hates it and i’m always switching it from hot to too cool ….sometimes for fun i make it super hot or super cold when he is unaware and put the shower head towards him……lol just messing with him
