How quickly we go through bars of soap! Oh well, at least I know hubby is clean!

We co-habitated for a couple of years prior to marriage, so not to many surprises. However, I was not prepared for:

1) How many people would mispell & mispronounce my new last name! (My maiden name was so much easier.)

2) How much we save, now that we’re on the same car insurance & medical benefit plans! (Yay for more $$ in the bank!)

2) How things mostly still feel the same. =)

2) How much more busy I am at nite than before.

3) How easy it really is to live together and have someone to come home to!!

1. He gets cold easily and now our household uses more heat.

2. I didn’t think about the fact that he will be falling into a lower tax bracket and I will be falling into a higher one by filing jointly. Overall beneficial but still, that’s something that didn’t occur to me.

3. How much I’ll be obsessing over building equity and retirement. Since united we’re more powerful, we’re having goals in mind that wouldn’t otherwise occurred to me if we were single.

4. How many dreary domestic errands there are to take care of!

How much more my husband sends me lovey texts and tells me he loves me!  We’ve always been very close, but since we got married, Wowza! Other than that, the only other thing that’s different is trying to merge our finances. it’s a pain in the toosh!

We lived together before getting married, soo….

1) Strangers treat us differently. Servers, tellers, the car repair guys, everyone… it’s almost like we are more respected because we are married. Then again, I do live in the Bible Belt. Go figure. 🙂

2) Having to emphasize that our marriage is just that: ours. It’s not our friends’ marriages, it’s not his parent’s (failed) marriage, it’s ours, and that makes it unique and special. I really had to come down remarks like “Well, So and So are married, and it is/isn’t like that for them…” Drove me nuts!

3) He was sort of a jealous kind of guy to begin with, but now that we are actually married, it’s like WHOA! That’s something we’ve had to deal with, and are still in the process of dealing with. “No, honey, I was NOT hitting on the pre-pubescent guy at the drive-thru window… and no, he wasn’t hitting on me either.”

1) How much more laundry there is. I lived with my Grandma after college and we didn’t have as much laundry as my husband and I do. he goes thru so many shirts.


2) Constanstly re-adjusting the stupid car seat and mirrors.


30 How much cheaper some things are and how much expensive other things are.

We lived together for a few years before getting married so not much has changed.

Maybe only getting used to my new surname & trying to remember what companies I’ve changed my name on and which ones I haven’t.

We lived together for three years and owned a home for five months before our wedding, so mine are:

  1. How much nothing has really changed
  2. How much I LOVE hearing him call me his wife (he never called me his fiancee when we were engaged)
  3. How content I finally am (after years of wanting to marry him, I finally am!)
