Haha, actually a lot of our friends ask us how everything is going for our first year of marriage. I always say "just like the last 6 years", nothing has changed.I think the biggest change was just having to do things jointly like re-finance our mortgage and file our taxes as married. Other than that no big changes in attitudes between us or anything else.
April, you will never be alone and in NO WAY is what Shelby's going through a reflection of you. You are in a mud pit right now but if anyone can pull through it, it's you. Love you so much.
Lisa, we talked about finances to a certain degree before (we had to at one point, but that's a story for not on the internet) but it was pretty surface level stuff. It's weird, D has taken on a couple of my bills - I'm on his cell phone plan and we just moved me to his insurance (auto) and I'm not sure why I don't like the feeling of it. We have separate bank accounts so I do an auto deposit into his every paycheck and will increase it to cover the cell & insurance too so technically I'm still paying for them. I think it's because I was on my own for so long that it's hard to turn over control to someone else for even something as little as a cell phone bill. Like others, there were not a lot of surprises after we got married because we had been together and lived together so long before hand but there are moments when I struggle (again, probably the independence/dependent thing). On the upside though, D is so much mushier than I expected him to be since we got married. I'm not sure if I told you guys but the first time he told me he loved me was the night he proposed and although he still doesn't say it every day he does say it often and I melt every time he does.
