Both Becca and I still consider ourselves newlyweds, even though it's far past our first year of marriage. I think other somewhat-newly married couples can relate to the fact that I still feel like I'm learning new things about marriage each day. But today Becca and I aren't here to only talk to you fellow newlyweds. We're sharing some information for all of you - married, dating, single, or other...
Are you nervous?
Like, that my marriage is going to fail...? Should I be nervous? Because I feel pretty confident, thanks.
When are you having kids?
Umm... hello. I just gained a husband. I don't need another live-in companion until I get used to this one.
Are you having fertility issues?
What in the world makes you think that's okay to assume or even ask about?
What do you do with all your time now that you're not wedding planning?
Nothing. My life is meaningless without it.
Who wears the pants in the relationship?
We both like to wear pants. Especially in public.
How's married life?
Great. Fine. Fun. Not sure what you're looking for because I don't know how you could possibly sum up this new "life" is one word.
The first year is always the hardest!
Yes, obviously it is an adjustment. But do you think you could say something encouraging?
Wow, you're just so young!
Again, so encouraging.
Does your spouse let you do that?
Let me? For serious? I gained a husband, not a legal guardian.
It's all downhill from here!
Yes, my life is over and I will never have any fun now that I am fully committed to the person I love most in the world. Totes jealous of your awkward blind dates.
If you are a dedicated reader of my, Becca's, or both of our blogs I would love to know which statements you thought were mine and which statements you thought were hers! If you're a fellow newlywed, what other things do people say to you that you would add to this list?!
