yes, but not really in ways you would expect.  i think it has made us more intimate and just more connected.

Yes it most definitely did, we were in a LDR until we got married, and the fact that we were together, having sex for the first time, and married with the license solidified our commitment to each other.

Our day to day is very much the same. We lived together for about 9 months prior to the wedding, so we had our routine down pretty well. There was definitely a feeling that now we were finally married, we really were together forever and had each other to rely on, trust and turn to before anyone else. It’s a great feeling.

I would say yes. We didn’t live together before we were married, so in our first year we’ve gone through the transition of living together, a move half-way across the country, and a lot of wrestling over issues in our lives and what we want to do, who we are, etc. It’s been rough. But at the same time, even just recently, I’ve noticed a closeness and openness that’s developed as we’ve weathered all that together and stayed committed to eachother. I think, for us at least, it’s been gradual, but we’re growing closer for sure (and it’s only been a year!)

Yes, however, there was a bigger difference between being in a relationship and being engaged, than between being engaged to being married, if that makes any sense.

When we decided to get engaged, it was the day we decided we would be committed to each other forever, getting married confirmed that but the promise was already there.

I def. think it did, it has made us realize that we need to be kinder to each other and that we made a life long commitment to each other.  Before we got married we would argue and be ready to end it, but now it is just not that simple.  I think we have accepted out differences and love each other because of them

Yes, even though we have been together for seven years, we are closer now than ever.  We are even more of a team now than before, and I thought things were good before- they are even better now!

not really.  there was nothing that I can pinpoint that I felt we were “closer” now that we are married…but then again we had been freinds since college and together for 7 years after college so any closer and I think we’d be one person 🙂 no…j/k…

Nope, we didnt feel any different after getting married. We were very close before the wedding, and remain very close afterwards.

Hands down yes.  We didn’t notice it at first, but after about a year we have.  There’s just something different and more comfortable about being married than if you are simply dating/engaged and living together.

Actually, I think it is. A little bit. We have been together for 9 years and lived together for 5 of those years, so really not much has changed. But it does feel like we are a little bit closer. I can’t really explain it. Sometimes we’ll be sitting on the couch watching a movie, and when we look at each other to talk or laugh, we make eye contact just a little bit longer. That sounds silly, but I’ve noticed it since our wedding.
