Its weird to think of myself as a Mrs. but here I am a year into marriage and I can say we haven’t tried to kill each other, so that’s definitely a plus.
A number of people prior to getting married said everything would change and I was a bit nervous, but I’m happy to report that the change wasn’t a negative one. I have learned to negotiate and boo’s learned that I’m right most of the time(lol I’m joking). Seriously I think the major change has been remembering that there is a permanent person with you forever and ever and that you have to move forward together like a three legged race.
Expectations are also something that you can have but never vocalize and in the last year I’ve learned to never assume that what I want is obvious. Sometimes these expectations are cultural and something I’ve grown up with. Whereas boo’s upbringing was completely different from mine and our assumptions can be on the opposite ends of the spectrum (FYI I’m Ghanaian-Canadian and Boo is Dutch-Canadian). Remembering to vocalize expectations has saved us from a number of potential arguments lol.
All-in-all I’m still enamoured with boo and I’m incredibly humbled to be a partner with someone as caring, intelligent, genuinely nice, sweet, funny, adorable and I look forward to adding another chapter to our story.
