Hi ladies! This June, my husband and I hit our 1 year anniversary (which is crazy, because it feels like our wedding was yesterday).
SO MANY PEOPLE told me Year 1 was going to be the hardest year we would ever have, that married life is so different from dating, etc. etc. but I think it was the smoothest year yet for us. We had a few fights, sure, but nothing too serious. I’d have to imagine the first year with kids is the hardest year for a husband & wife…
Just curious, did a lot of people have smooth sailing in Year 1, or were there some rough patches?

Smooth sailing for us too! Congrats!

Pretty smooth sailing for us. Year two was very challenging as we were dealing with debilitating skin disorders and lots of stress and depression. Luckily, we made it through that second year by the skin of our teeth. Year three seems to be better so far. New, better jobs, more of a routine at home, and finally getting some answers to our infertility. Marriage sure isn’t easy, but it’s definitely worth it.

I’m sorry 🙁 It sounds like those are unavoidable issues no matter what the year. Best of luck with everything!!

Year 1 was incredibly rough for us! I think we are the better for it, though. I thought I was mature, and my husband too, but we had a lot of difficulty in handling conflict. It was hard keeping rational when tensions were high. We’ve been doing better lately, though. Here’s hoping that year 2 will be smoother! 🙂

Easy peasy lemon squeezy. We’ll ding our third year here in december and there really hasn’t been any difficulties outside of normal relationship stuff you’d encounter regardless.

We were also told that the first year was the hardest, and it was insanely easy for us! We might’ve had a handful of arguements over the course of the year, but nothing near as bad as our second year of just dating. Married life is incredible and I’m so thrilled to be a month into our second year already!

- Wedding: November 2014 - Figtree Resturant Byron Bay
Our one year is in November.
So far the start of the year has been quite hard, but now we are in a much better place.
It hasn’t been a hard year but I suppose there has been a couple of big challenges for us to overcome and now that we have just bought our first house together we have some big things to be excited for!

Happy anniversary to everyone 🙂 our 1 year was July 4th. It’s been a pretty smooth year.. but we were living together for 1.5 years before the wedding so not much feels different

Our anniversary was 5th July! Overall we’ve had a great year and just bought our first home. More than ever I feel like he’s my best friend.
We had a difficult time for 3 months when I had to work some extremely long hours and we were both miserable with never seeing each other. But he was a huge support through that.

I’m not going to lie, our first year has had its rough patches. We’ve had to deal with my parents divorce from the week we got back from our honeymoon. That shouldn’t affect us, but it has been a really nasty divorce, with my mom moving in literally, the first weekend we were back from our honeymoon… it sucked. We couldn’t be newlyweds and I think that really took its toll on us. She no longer lives with us but the D word is always present in every conversation. Divorce is not a good topic to constantly talk about when I haven’t even printed our wedding pictures yet.
Thankfully things are much better now and even with a disagreement here and there, I can say we made it through what could possibly be, the hardest time of our relationship so far.
We are definitely looking forward to our big vacation trip in a month. It is well needed!!

Smooth sailing for us! We’re nearing our second year soon. We were living together beforehand though, so it’s not like much as changed. Our first year living together went well too though. I think we’re just on the same page about most things.
