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.

The Good:

  • My husband is a much better hubby than boyfriend. I hardly recognize him now.
  • I have completed college and now I am working in my career.
  • We moved to a much larger apartment in a luxury building. 
  • We have a lovely little white cat.
  • We bought a new car during an employee pricing event.
  • We have decided to renew our vows after having a crappy wedding.
  • We are the proud aunt and uncle to three girls. 
  • I love my Father-In-Law, my SIL and my little redhead niece. 

The Bad:

  • My husband complains that I am too distant. I am trying to protect myself from being hurt again.
  • I was hit by a car and broke my hand. I needed physio.
  • I had a benign tumor in my liver which was burnt away. I still have marks on my body where the probe went it.
  • My Mother-In-Law and Brother-In-Law are crazy. Thank God we live far away.
  • My Mother-In-Law is a racist. 
  • We had to leave a racist area. People didn’t like a mixed couple or a black woman in their neighbourhood. 
  • People from my husband’s tiny town look down on us because we rent. Houses cost nearly ONE MILLION here while they cost under $160,000 there. Clearly there is no comparision.
  • I have had to let go of some toxic friendships. I still miss them sometimes.

You are very kind to keep the roommate.

Many people would have kicked her our regardless of her financial situation.

The good:

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. Darling Husband has been getting lots of recognition and new opportunities at work.

The bad: 

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.

The ugly:

Nothing super ugly thank god!
