What I've Learned So Far About Being Married


*it's okay to hang out together but still be doing your own thing*

*one of the most fun things about sharing all your money...
...is deciding how to spend your grocery budget*

*winning fights is not the most important thing*

*sometimes you can't tear yourself away...
...no matter what else is going on in the world*

*as a matter of fact, winning the fight is pretty much the least important thing*

*bliss is when you fall asleep together and wake up together and know...
...that you're each the person the other one wants to be waking up next to*

*even when you wake up looking like an insane person*

*who knew you could pass hours just making each other laugh?* 

*having traditional gender roles in a marriage is okay...
...as long as you are each happy to be in them*

*knowing that someone made a choice and a declaration to be with you forever...
...really gives you a lot of trust that this person isn't going anywhere* 

*and that's a good feeling*

*especially when you want to talk about having babies and you know...
...that now he's okay with talking about it too*

*learning to communicate well is way harder than you think it's going to be*

*someone now shares your life...
...big decisions (and even medium-sized ones) should be made together* 

*mini after-lunch-cuddle-sessions are pretty much the best thing on the planet* 

*there is still so much to learn about this person you think you know so well*

*compromise is key*

*and hey, you never knew that a godfather poster and a purple ikea lamp...
...would work together in the same space*

*it's important to remember who "you" are...
...as well as who "we" are*

*knowing you have a partner & a friend in everything you do...
...is a wonderful feeling*
