Husband and I got married yesterday 😀
We got married before the wedding ceremony for visa reasons. We went down to the ward office and gave them some documents, it took about 45 minutes to process, and we were married! It was not romantic at all but it is very official. We’ve been calling each other “hubby” and “wifey” for the past 24 hours. We went for a very romantic/classy/delicious dinner at night, on the 52nd floor of the Park Hyatt overlooking the entire city and it was beautiful.
Even though we’ve celebrated a lot (NUMEROUS glasses of champagne all day yeseterday), it really hasn’t sunk in. Of course I love him tons and the new names are great but we both feel so…. normal. Nothing has really changed because we have already been living together for the past 2 years and the fact that we still have to tackle the visa thing is weighing on our minds. It feels so natural to be married, like we’ve already been married for a long time and it’s just a piece of paper that has changed.
Maybe it’s because we didn’t have the big ceremony with the white dress and all the people around or maybe it’s all the stuff I’ve mentioned above. Or maybe this is just a normal feeling. For all you married gals and guys, did it sink in for you right away? Or do you feel like I feel..
“I mean you fill some form out once and a while and instead of checking the box that says Ms you check the box that says Mrs.! It’s right next to it!”
I’ve attached a picture from our wedding day for good measure

I got married back in December and it just started to sink in during the last week or two.

I don’t think it’s not having the big ceremony/dress and all… Got married in January, and when you come back home, everything feels normal, as you said, except for the fact that it’s different legally.. Especially if you have been living together like a married couple.
I guess there will come a point where it will sink in!

I don’t know…i’ve been married for 6 months and it still hasn’t sunk in yet…our lives are very much the same as they were before we were married…like you we had already been living together for a couple of years…so immediately after the wedding we took a little mini 3 day vaca (we didn’t take our real honeymoon until 3 months after the wedding) and it was back to work like normal…so who know’s when that feeling will really sink in…

I’m still getting used to it. It’s a bit odd referring to my ‘husband’ instead of my ‘fiance.’ It’s odder when my husband calls me his ‘wife.’ If anything, getting engaged was a bigger immediate shift. I suppose the engagement was more of a surprise, whereas we had tons of time to prepare for being ‘married.’
It’s probably a gradual thing, and one day it will just seem normal!

congrats! if it’s anything like getting engaged, it probably sinks in when it feels “normal” and not new! It may even happen for you after the wedding in October when all the excitement settles down…just enjoy the new and exciting for now and congrats again!

My husband still frequently calls me his girlfriend, and we’ve been married since July! The week after our honeymoon felt so surreal because we were back to real life, but we were MARRIED.
