“How’s married life?”

Kevin and I cannot keep count of how many times we’ve been asked, “How’s married life?” It’s so sweet that people want to know. But honestly, how do you answer that question?!

If being married is awful, you’re not just going to admit to that. And, if you’re like me and love being married, I could talk to you for hours about why we love married life. After five minutes you would probably ask me to please stop talking… So our typical answer is a simple “It’s great!”

These first three months of marriage have been both fun and educational. Fun in the sense that I get to hang out with my best friend and love of my life every single day. (PSA – if you can’t have fun with your partner, you need a new partner.) Educational because we’ve had to learn how to merge two lives together. Kevin and I are figuring out how to keep a budget together, plan future goals together, take turns hogging our one bathroom, load the dishwasher without judging each other’s weird loading habits, and my sweet husband has even learned to love my cat as much as I do.

So, for all those wondering, married life is amazing and I wouldn’t trade my life with Kevin for anything! I’d be interested to hear from my readers who have been married for more than a year how the dynamics change over time! Feel free to comment below.

  1. As James and I have been married for three and a half years, I can honestly say that I love him just as much as I did on day one. It was interesting to merge two lives together and to learn each others habits, the good and the bad. I, for one, have learned to just laugh at the small things, like how serious he is about cleanliness. He has also learned to be a little more lenient because we have two kids… the house is never absolutely spotless for more than five minutes. We’ve had few moments to where we’ve had to actually work together and put a little effort into our marriage, but other than that, it’s a piece of cake. I’ve heard many people say that you’ve got to work at it and work at it EVERY day. But, I think when you’ve found your true soulmate, it just comes easy and natural. It’s fun and rewarding! Still to this day, I find myself learning new things about James, about his past, about his goals for the future. We are always changing and evolving, just as my goals change with each year.

  2. Marriage is a non-stop journey of learning about each other. It’s also taught me so much about God’s patience and grace. I’m so grateful for a spouse that shows me those attributes daily 🙂

    • I’m also grateful for a spouse that is so kind and humble, loving and patient, and always puts me first… I see God’s love through Kevin! We have always looked to you and Philip as a role model for Christian marriage and we strive to be as good to each other as you are ❤

  3. Michael and I are going on 6 years. It honestly has had its testing moments. It’s not been a piece of cake but as long as you always have each other’s backs no matter what happens and what everyone thinks about it then you can push through anything. It’s a wonderful journey!

    • I love this… having each other’s backs. You’re a team and working together to make it a wonderful journey! I can’t believe it’s been 6 years 🙂 feels like just yesterday I was at your wedding. I’m glad you and Michael found each other!

  4. The look on your face is priceless ! You look awesome ! Marriage is a full time job and as long as both of you are “all in” and “never forget to forgive ” you will be unstoppable ! Congratulations !!
