Marriage Does Feel Different
This last Saturday, there were two big events: Judgement Day, and our wedding. Well judgement day thankfully didn’t happen, but the wedding did go through and everything went well. I really didn’t think things would feel different after we said “I Do.” Four days into the marriage, things do feel different.My wife and I have lived together for 2 years. I’ve helped raise her son for the last two years. We’ve been through a lot of ups and even some downs in that amount of time. We’ve already figured out how to handle our finances, responsibilities, chores, who does what, and so on and so on and so on. How would marriage feel any different? I was sure it wasn’t going to be any different.
It is. But It’s a good kind of different. The feeling just changes. It’s really hard to describe, but it’s a “glued-together” kind of feeling. It’s not that we are constantly with each other, but I just feel closer to her. It was pretty freaky for the first day realizing the significance of what we have said. It didn’t really hit me until we got to the vows. I knew it was coming, but it just all adds up once you really go through with the wedding.
It’s also really weird referring to Shawna as my wife. I have to keep catching myself. I’m glad I don’t have to say “fiance” anymore. I really hated that fancy word. I also filled out paperwork today and for the first time checked the “married” box. MIND BLOW!
Like I’ve said, it’s a good feeling. We are really happy. My mom told me after our ceremony that I have never smiled so much. I think she’s right.
