How's Married Life?

You know what's the worst thing about being married? Being asked how married life is. I totally get that people are just being polite.. but I hate this question. Partially because I hate small talk, and partially because, how in the hell am I supposed to answer that? When I reply "oh it's good," I get stared at like I'm supposed to say more. I mean, I love being married to Tell but what do these people want from me? Am I supposed to spin around Julie Andrews style and sing about the joys of folding his underwear? 

We've all been there, asking a newlywed how they're adjusting to married life, I'm guilty of it too. So consider this blog a PSA wherein you realize how annoying it is to be asked the same question an average of three times a day (and sometimes by the same people in the same week). You mean well. I get it. But married life is basically the same as unmarried life except the part where you don't get judged for sharing a bedroom. 

Can you imagine anyone ever replying, "it's awful, please help me." when you ask them how married life is? What if they did? Are you prepared for that? You probably aren't. God bless the poor souls who've asked me about married life, because I'm awkward and I just jump straight into the oddity of how it's much easier to change your name than it is to change your bank account. 

Being married is the bomb, but it's not some fast-developing story of which I care to give real-time coverage. Tell and I dated for 7.5 years before we were married and I really didn't expect to learn a whole lot more about him once we were legally bound together forever, and for the most part, I was right. Other than discovering that Tell buys worcestershire sauce literally every time he goes to the grocery store, and realizing that I do the same with flour and sugar, we're the same as we've always been: two best friends.  Except now we have A LOT of worcestershire sauce, flour, and sugar. 

Happy Wednesday,


  1. Can Tell make some "Wooster-sauce" chutney?

    1. I think it had some in it? I'm still not sure...
