When we were boyfriend and girlfriend, everyone kept asking us, “When are you two kids tying the knot?”
First both family and friends alike ask, “What’s so different about married life?”
This question is kind of hard to answer… We still live together like we did before, in the same apartment, we drive the same car, we have the same jobs, live in the same city… After the honeymoon we just came back to our regular lives. So I guess at first glance nothing much has changed. Well, one thing: Andrew now wears a gold piece of jewelry… and I quite like the look of it.
But when I take a few more minutes to think about the question, I realize there is something that has changed. Something big. We’re still the same… but now we’re somehow stronger. Every decision we make from here on out, we make as a team. And it’s a team that is respected, revered and understood worldwide. I feel proud to call Andrew my husband instead of just my boyfriend. The title feels nice and secure.
So now when people ask the first question again, I just simply answer, “it’s the same, just better.”
Which then leads them to the second question, “So when are you guys having babies?” I then go into panic mode and think, not yet. Not yet.
