A Review Of Our First 100 Days Of Marriage
Well what seemed to take forever to get here, came and passed. It's now been over 100 days since my wife and I were married. I figured its a good benchmark for newly weds. After all, the first 100 days of a President's term in office is always reviewed.
The most common question that always comes up in conversation is, so how's married life? I almost always respond, "WHAT A MISTAKE!"And then of course I laugh. I just love seeing the stunned look on people's faces. Things are going very well, and so far none of my fears have come true.
First off, I was worried that things would change. We had been living together for over a year before we tied the knot and I liked the system I had going. I was worried that as soon as I put the ring on my finger, things would fall apart. I don't know why, it was just a weird feeling. Things around the house seem to actually go a little more smoothly.
Things are also a lot less stressful. We can finally go on and live our life, without having to plan the wedding or be the center of the family's (families') attention. People GO NUTS over wedding planning! Thank God that we are past that.
We don't fight as much. We never really have been a couple that fights, but every couple has their disagreements along the way. Maybe its a part of the less stress, but we just don't seem to fight much at all. That's a good thing.
We still have sex. I know it's too much information to share, but that's what everyone says after you get married, you can kiss sex goodbye. We don't exactly have alone time very often but we make use of it when we can. I know, I know, too much information. But someone has to squash that rumor. That one scared the hell out of me to start with.
Ok this one is really corny, but I love my wife Shawna more now than I did 100 days ago. Yep, it's true. I do. I don't know why I love her more, but I still smile when I think about her.
Now let's hope she'll read this and I can score some points ;)
