I can’t believe that we have been married for 4 months already? I thought it would be good to do a post about things we have learnt since we got hitched!
There are still letters coming through with our old surname on
It’s so hard to remember every little thing to change your name on, your driving license and bank is easy but electoral roll and TV license are not really things you remember until you get a weird reminder.
You still find you say ‘Girlfriend’ or ‘Partner’ instead of Wife.
It’s still weird to say Wife but it still gives a little flutter of excitement when I do remember.
We’re thinking of boring things, like life insurance and wills
Suddenly you realise you have a ‘family’, however small. Your unit is now your most important thing and you feel so much more protective.
The big day is already a distant memory
Yes it’s only 4 months but it really is over in a flash. You analyse all the good stuff and you still want to do it all again!
Your dresses still haven’t been to the dry cleaners
Not yet prepared to send them to the dry cleaners so they are hung up…waiting to go…when we can part with them.
There is still plenty of your wedding day perfume left
It was a big bottle, it’ll never run out, will it?
The honeymoon period is a real thing
We’re still currently floating on air from the day and 4 months on it feels like it couldn’t possibly be any different.
It has been a glorious 4 months and of course we are so very happy that we did decide to get married.
And for those that keep asking ‘So, how’s married life then?’ I will keep responding ‘Brilliant, recommend it to everyone!’
What did you learn after you got married? Do you still get stuff with your old surname on too?
