We married recently and there’s been a flurry of weddings in our lives, so I’ve been asked this a lot lately.
“No”, I reply, “nothing’s changed. It was a wonderful day but not life changing.”
“So why get married at all?”
Here’s the thing, we choose to marry then for practical & pragmatic reasons but that’s not the point though your mileage may vary. You’re asking the wrong question. The day I felt different, the day my world changed was the day I realised: The day I knew “I want to spend the rest of my life with this person”.
I woke up the next day and everything was different. I was changed. Or as my wife put it: I didn’t rock up to the alter thinking “Yep, marrying her is a good idea!”
So, no I don’t feel different now we’re married. I feel different since the day I committed.
