Hello brides!! It’s almost our one year wedding anniversary on March 28. Anyone else still having some challenges to married life from singlehood? I adore my husband and we’re a great match!!! However.... I’m still trying to adjust to things. Like, getting free spare time to myself, eating times, sleeping times, Etc. When I was single if I wanted to sleep at 6pm and then get up at 9 and have a snack then lounge around until I wanted to go to bed, it was no big deal. Being married that just is weird now, I guess since he wants to snuggle on the sofa watching movies after dinner, then go to bed at the same time. If I’m not hungry I don’t want to eat necessarily just because he’s hungry or wants to eat. I have little leisure time, he’s retired. Also, I was used to going where I want, when I want, however long I want but it’s of course different now since it’s polite to let someone know where you are. Even if I wanted to stay overtime at work for however long I wanted to, I feel guilty now because I hadn’t seen him since that morning. Plus I’m not used to this much food in the house. I’m vegan and he’s pretty much vegetarian though eats meat very occasionally, so there’s breads, cheeses, mayo, dairy products which I do not eat. Plus his snack stuff and sweets. He listens to news and radio talking heads shows, I don’t because it’s stressful to me. I enjoy quiet time in the morning because people are talking to me at work all day, he’s making music and news noise but uses headphones now 👍
So many other things he takes care of that I either don’t like doing or have time to do, which takes a great load off my shoulders, like housekeeping stuff, which he is way better at than me anyway since he’s the organized one and I’m not LOL, he cooks most of the time, cleans the kitchen and bathroom all the time, makes the bed, etc. Also anything to do with the car or house, and he’s very handy with tools. I take care of bill paying which is pretty simple with bank online bill pay. He’s such a romantic too, which I enjoy and always feel loved. We do talk thing out which is also sometimes a challenge for me but it’s interesting to know we can find a compromise solution to things.
Adjusting but I’m getting there!!! 👍❤️
