I feel like it is the same post-wedding, so when I reply to that question I just reply “The same as before … but I wear more bling” .. it usually gets a laugh out of people!

@Ms Mini:Hilarious!  I love that response! 

We don’t anticipate much change after the wedding either.  We’ve lived together for 3 years now, and we’re still ridiculously in love, and excited to spend eternity together!  Why mess with perfection?  ๐Ÿ˜‰

@twocatcupcake:I LOVE your avatar, aww! ๐Ÿ™‚

Yes I would be rich too. I don’t really mind the question though, it’s just a natural thing to say to a newlywed. And  honestly I think I’d be a little upset if no one asked me. But yeah, married life is WAY better than engaged life. No wedding planning, now we are ‘smug marrieds’ who think we know everything and are better than everyone else ๐Ÿ™‚

Actually, it does feel a little bit different though I didn’t expect it to.

We didn’t move in together until we were engaged. And we were engaged for two years.

The thing that feels different about it now is that we became a *family*. Not just a couple of people living together.

I can tell…he’s more devoted now. Not that he wasn’t devoted before. But he takes care of me more now. And vice versa. Hard to explain but it does feel a little different.

I get that question a lot also, but i think it is just people’s way of creating small talk ya know? Not much is different for us either. We lived together the whole time we were engaged. 

@ms mini i love your response! haha

I respond with Married? huh oh ya- he is already cheating on me with his textbooks! lol kinda corny but whatever ๐Ÿ˜‰ He is in podiatry school so he always has his face in a textbook or a pillow!

I really hate that question.  I’m not sure what people expect you to answer to that.

It doesn’t feel different for me now because we are still living apart and have never lived together to begin with.  Now if I get this job that I am interviewing for next week, then we will be living together very soon.  Things will definitely be different because this will be new for both of us.

I usually say “Exactly the same!” and that gets a laugh out of people. They’re just looking for small talk, that’s all.

When someone is actually interested in a real answer and presses further, I say it’s mostly the same on the surface, but it feels different. We feel more grown-up, more permanent, more like a family.

Same here! People keep asking.  We lived together for 3 years before we got married.  I love calling Mr. HW husband now though.  So one thing that has changed is that we keep making up new nick names for each other.  So life is exactly the same, but I do “feel” a bit differently.  It’s hard to explain to people in passing, but marriage and committment is so sexy.  So yeah, the joking around is slightly different and I just feel a tad sexier about our relationship.  But I don’t think I would actually say any of that to someone if they asked.

Married life has been different for us even though we were living together before the wedding.  Things have become more “serious” now that we are married.  Talks about our future, our careers, and family, are more serious now because this is all for real.

I get that question alot and the funny thing is, DH and I are in a LDM, have seen eachother 3 times since the wedding 10 months ago, and have obviously not lived together…so, when I get this question, all from people who know our situation, I really just want to say, “Oh, well you know.  Going 10 months and only seeing your husband 3 times goes for a FANTASTIC (insert sarcasm) married life.  Thanks for asking.”  The standard answer is, “Well, I’m sure it will be great once we’re living together, but for now I’m still enjoying having the closet all to myself.” lol

My husband has a great response. 

“It’s going good. How’s it going for you?”

It’s just chit-chat. People know you’re recently married, so it gives them something to say to you. No different than them asking “how are you?”, they are just being polite and are expecting a generic affirmative response.

I don’t mind the question at all – I am loving married life so I tell people so (perhaps not in so many words!)  All that waiting, anticipation, planning – this is what it was for!

(of course I wouldn’t mind a nickle for each time the question was asked of me!)
