    We are!!! I absolutely LOVE being married. I’ve loved my newlywed year, learning how to make a marriage work and how to be a wife.

    I’m sure more people feel lovey dovey too, it just isn’t something you talk about a lot? Whereas if you have relationship problems, they’re talked about more often. So I think that’s where the bias comes in.

    Meeeeeeeee!!!! Love my new husband so much! He went away for the weekend and I missed him so much, I jumped on him when he got in. I didnt think I would feel so different after the wedding, but I feel more even more in love with him and proud that he is my husband now that we are married πŸ™‚

    I am!  Granted, it has only been 10 days, but based on our happy 3 years prior to marriage, I don’t think it will be changing (for the worse) anytime soon πŸ™‚  Having the wedding stress over and done with is WONDERFUL, and we are just so happy to be husband and wife πŸ™‚  I am loving marriage so far πŸ˜€

    I guess I’m technically still a newlywed, right? :p I’m pretty damn happy. 2012 hasn’t been the best year thanks to some lovely outside forces at play, but our relationship is stronger than ever and I love him a hundred times more than I did on the wedding day if that’s possible.

    I agree.  People ask me if anything’s changed… and I always reply no since we’ve been together for so long.  But now that you mention it, I do feel closer to him and we flirt a lot more.  Increased libido… and just overall affection. 

    I do anticipate a bigger “change” when we own our first home together though.

    @mtnhoney:  why the dig at more expensive weddings? is that really necessary or even related to your question?

    dh and I aren’t really newlyweds anymore–it’s been over 2 years (since what other people would def consider a “big budget” wedding!) but we’re still really, really happy–he’s my best friend and I’m very lucky to get to spend the rest of my life with him πŸ™‚

    We’re coming up on our 1 year anniversary, and every day of married life is better than the day before. I just can’t believe how lucky I am to be married to Mr. LK. Every day is such a blessing.

    We got married the 8th, and not much is different (we lived together 3 years prior).  I’m happy to say we were very happy to begin with and still are. I’m in the – it doesn’t feel real – phase still. And we get giggly calling each other “husband” and “wife. 

    One thing I did notice was while on our mini-moon we visited a state park and climbed a (very very tall) look-out tower and while I’ve never been scared of heights, I was shaky and really nervous/apprehensive. I couldn’t figure out why I felt that way, but as we were talking later, we thought it might be that I felt that much more protective of my now husband. Weird.

    I’d say we are more in love now than ever before– but TBH it’s been tough! DH had some bad news regarding his health shortly after our honeymoon, a death in the family hit hard and caused major family drama so….. I’m just glad we have each other and year 2 can be all about bliss lol.

    Things are good, sort of, but not in a bad way.  I miss my DH so much.  Just two weeks after we got married his work trip that he planned on being one week out- one week back- then two weeks out (a few states away), got changed to 3 weeks out, in a row.  So as he slaves away (he had like 35+ hours of overtime last week!) I am stuck at home, rather depressed.  I am looking forward to his return though!  I miss his big arms around me and the way he sometimes tries to get tangled with me in bed.  I think I’ll be planning the first few meals for the next 10 days!

    Marrying DH was the BEST DECISION EVER.
