What was your biggest adjustment after getting married?

Recommended Posts

My FI and I did not live together before we got married but the biggest thing for me is sharing a bed. We have a Cal King so it is plenty big, but I always enjoyed going home at night and having my bed to myself. I think it is because I am such a light sleeper and now I get no sleep. wink.gif I guess I will get used to it.

 

I know many of you live or lived with your FI before you got married, but since being married what has been the biggest adjustment or something that you didn't expect?

lmao... you poor thing. I know when I first moved in with FI that was my big thing too. That and sharing my bathroom with him. He is pretty clean but having his little shavings on the sink grosses me out. I am so glad our new house has his and hers sinks.

No sad.gif It's all the same. We have lived together for two years so we didn't have a lot of adjustments. We share money more now.

We used to share a twin! Now a full is feeling crowded.

 

I had trouble adjusting to him waking me up in the morning. I got an ocean sounds CD (I uploaded the mp3 to the forum is you want it) and I sleep great.

 

We have been living together for 4 years. The main change after the wedding will be combining money. We are devising a game plan now. We have been splitting everything, but since we got engaged we don't really bother to write the grocery costs on the list. I'll be happy to chunk that list & not have to keep track of everything. Less paperwork.

we've been living together for just about 1 year now, and for me the biggest adjustment was sharing a bathroom... for some reason my FI cannot pee without sprinkling the edge of the toilet bowl, and sometimes even the floor if he goes in the middle of the night. it drives me absolutely mad. he doesnt wipe it up either and he is the biggest clean freak i know! its so gross. now, on days when we are going to have company or when i've just cleaned the bathroom, he sits down to pee so i dont get mad.

 

when i lived alone, i also used to throw stuff wherever when i got home from work because i was tired and figured why should i put it away now if i can put it away later? haha. that annoys the bajesus out of my FI so i had to stop doing it.

 

we have a queen bed, which fits us both fine, but when we buy a house we will be getting a king bed for sure. my FI likes to stretch out. he just left this morning for a biz trip for 5 days and he said he would miss me but he was excited to sleep in a bed by himself so he can sprawl out!

If I stay up too late mike "goes diagonal" across the bed. Once we have a home we are getting a king. we slept on a king during a vacation. I loved it & he said it was lonely.

So you might think we're crazy but...The first week I moved in with my FI (we've now lived together 1 1/2 years) we pushed my double bed and his double bed together so we have 1 giant bed, but seperate sheets, mattresses, blankets, pillows. People laugh at us when we tell them, but then they realize how much sense it makes. We have slept wonderfully every night since, and I recommend it to everyone hehe

Me too. It feels as if nothing at all has changed. We've lived together for 5 years, owned a house together for 3+ years and have been sharing money for awhile; so no big adjustments.

Morgan ~ That is funny!! I love the different perspectives.

Thankfully Charlie and I have his and her sinks because I could see how that might caused some issues but I must say that my hubby is very very clean!

We have our own sheets. We tried to share at first so we have full sized sheets & a comforter. So now it just covers me & hangs off the bed. I've said that when we move I want two full sized beds together.

Mike gets up a lot earlier than me & he takes his comforter with him when he moves into the living room to stay warm. I told him he was giving me nightmares because I'd see this cloaked figure walking out of the room when I was half asleep.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
