A week into marriage and it’s been wow. wow. wow!
All’s been good & nice. I now have a hearty breakfast laid on the table every morning instead of needing to tabao some unhealthy cheong fun or nasi lemak from the coffeeshop at my workplace. The husband sends me to the MRT station, which is a 5 min train ride from my destination..making it 15 minutes journey in total and picks me up when he can, I definitely saved from all those impulsive cab spending. The husband also calls me more than usual now to tell me how much he misses me..let’s see how long this will last ;p
Marriage has also made the husband more protective too. He’s been disallowing anything sheer of any sorts for me to try on, unless it’s for him and him only. :\
Marriage has made the husband nag more. More at my spending more than anything else. Always asking if it’s necessary for that extra bag/clothes/shoes that I want to purchase. And more often than not he makes the right call, differentiating a good buy from an impulse one. He remembers all the bags and shoes that I own and will always remind me that I have a similar one whenever I ask if something is nice. Comforting to have a husband who understands me well enough to exercise caution and control well I guess?
Marriage has made the husband more sensitive to my emotions and needs. My frowns and smiles are noticed, angst and what nots.
Marriage has made me more willing. To go the extra mile that is. The husband got quite sick just hours after our wedding ceremony and the illness stuck with him for a week. As lazy and tired as I was to get out of bed almost every night to get him his medication and water, I knew I had to because I wanted him to recover. And in doing so, made me realize what my mum went through all those years when I was sick.
Marriage has made me more weary of spending. I now look out for value (aesthetics uncompromise as much as possible though) whenever we shop for household products. I feel a bit of an “auntie”, but it does feel good to know that I’ve saved the husband a few hundred dollars without skimming on quality.
Marriage has made me smile more and not fret over every tiny thing. Gossips, sabotage, jealousy are not as affective as before for I know God has blessed me with a man who loves me for who I am and very dearly so. There’s more to fulfillment than getting all petty with other geese and rats right?
Marriage has gotten me busier than usual. I now have less time to blog, MSN, surf, shop, spending most evenings catching up with the Bo on our day and watching DVDs, movies till the wee hours. And on this aspect I really got to learn how to manage my time better.
So marriage has indeed changed things. Mostly good stuff. No complains so far!
