The scene: It’s late. We’re up talking. And it’s about the wedding, of all things. I know, you’re amazed.
I guess it wasn’t so much about the wedding as it was about what comes after. Yeah, we’ve talked about logistics, about finances, about family, about the future before… but this weekend is when we put all these plans into action. Not every plan goes into action immediately, but the wheels start turning just a little bit faster: we’re not waiting on anything else to begin most plans.
We’ve heard conflicting reports about what happens after we turn in out papers. Some say that not much changes, and some say, “don’t let anybody fool you, marriage changes everything.” And some say that you should be married until you feel married.
In these last few weeks of preparation, we’ve started to feel married.
I don’t know if it’s the focused trips together, the working together on this project,the personal disappointments and focusing on concurrent goals, or each of us accomplishing personal goals… But it’s been nice to feel more “settled in” and confident in each other. I think we’re ready for this weekend.
So what do you think? Does marriage change a lot or very little?
