This week Ben and I will have been married for 5 years. I have no idea where the time has gone but in hindsight we’ve come a long way in half a decade. We’ve survived moving from one end of the country to the other, being sleep deprived new parents, growing a business and some very questionable DIY amongst other things.
5 things I've learnt in 5 years of marriage:
- Getting married is probably the least scary thing you can do in your grown up years – buying a house, having a baby, starting a new job or business – all far more terrifying!
- The amount of money you spend on a wedding bears no relation to how great your marriage will be
- It makes you feel like a grown up – the first time I said ‘I’ll discuss that with my husband’ I instantly felt a tiny bit less intimidated by the bank manager
- Be honest and remember neither of you are mind readers – if you don’t tell the other person how you’re feeling they’re probably not going to know
- It’s nice to have a break some times – just because you’re married doesn’t mean you have to be inseparable. It’s nice to have the chance to miss someone.
