So, what changed for Since you got married?
We dated for 10 years before getting married, so our relationship hasn’t changed a ton, but our lives hace changed a lot since we for married last August.
- We bought our first home! We love it and just moved in last week!
- DH started a new career-good, but a stressful transition for both us, especially because we both work at the same place now
- I got a promotion–good, but more responsibility and more stress
- DH needed surgery twice in the past month for his knee–financially a bummer, he also can’t walk without assistance for the next 4 weeks and he can’t work for two weeks
- My job stress–it’s peak season for my job (I recruit students for a middle and high school) and school just started this past Monday. My team has been working 10-12 hour days for the past few weeks and will continue to for a more weeks. I am exhausted and we still need more kids. Some days, I just want to cry… 🙁
- My car was totaled–the vehicle I had for the past 9 years and planned to keep was totaled in an accident earlier this year. While I like my new car, I don’t like having a car payment
- DH’s long time friend of 10 years stopped hangoing out with us because he met his now wife and had a child unexpectedly all within 11 months. While we are happy for them, she isn’t a “people person”

We got married 3 years ago and relationship wise, nothing has really chaged. We bought a house and moved in together a year before the wedding after getting engaged. But since being married…
- More amazing travels to Peru, Italy, Switzerland, Ireland, Iceland, and Taiwan
- 2 new cars for us
- Lots of house updates
- He got a new position at work and in a new management path now
- We got our dog
- Well, his car finally bit the dust, which forced us to buy the car, so I guess that’s bad
- My great grandmother passed away at 106 yrs old
- We’re dealing with infertility and starting IVF next month

We live together now which has its ups and downs. I’m glad to live with him but it required a lot of sacrifice on my end: giving up my job and my home as well as my cats.
We are actually sleeping together now! No more crashing on the couch when I’m at his house!
I got my name changed on all my legal documentation.
Trying to get this house cleaned and organized to my satisfaction.
Trying to teach my husband to use the freaking hamper. Less bad, more irritating.
Giving up a job I loved for one that I’ll still love but pays less.
We’ve got a roommate. I want her out, he wants her out, but she has nowhere to go right now so we’re stuck with her until she’s got a job with a living wage.

You are very kind to keep the roommate.
Many people would have kicked her our regardless of her financial situation.

We had a beautiful baby girl who turns 3 next month. I quit my job to stay at home with our 2 kids. My parents moved closer to us. DH has been getting lots of recognition and new opportunities at work.
DH’s family has had a lot of drama (that doesn’t have anything to do with us). We can’t agree on having another baby or not.
Nothing super ugly thank god!

PositiveThinking: +1 That is quite nice of them to let her stay.
ren89: Career changes can be hard, but I did the same thing and don’t regret it (3 years in)! Doing what I love means more to me, as long as I can still afford a comfortable life style.
