Now as you know, it has been over three months now (a hundred days to be precise) since I call myself a Missus, and life has transformed significantly for me. Leaving the ‘new place, new world, new family’ bit apart, even the relationship between the two of us has undergone a sea of a difference. I’m now somebody’s wife, a better half – and the term itself implies a whole lot of responsibilities.
The only thing that hasn’t changed is that I love him more, with each passing day.
However, the purpose of this post was not the mush, not the elderly advice, but to take a light-hearted look at how things happen differently once you’re married.
Like for example,
Situation 1 : The emperor’s new clothes
Fiance : Hey baby, what do you think of this new shirt? I bought it from Big Brand A for Big Money B, specially since it is our 5 week anniversary and we have planned a romantic walk with the dogs. Gosh, its been 5 weeks? Seems like yesterday!
Husband : Baby, what do you think of this shirt? I bought it 5 years ago from Big Brand A for Big Money B on discount, and I don’t feel like throwing it away just yet. It looks too old to wear it out with my friends, but do you think I can wear it today to the mall with you?
Wife : *sigh* sure you can, it’s only our 5 weeks wedding anniversary.
Situation 2 : Being dressy
Fiance : Wow, you look fantastic! I can’t tell if it is your new haircut, or the shade of lipstick that’s making you look so divine!
Husband : Come on, hurry up. What’s taking you so long? Who is it that you’re dressing up to impress?
Wife : Err, the neighbors?
Situation 4 : Painting his house
Fiancee : Oh, so your house is getting painted? Wow, I understand you’ll be busy. Ping me when you get free! XOXO *secretly wonders if the new room will be painted pink or blue*
Wife : Will you EVER let me choose the color of our room?
Situation 5 : Text messaging
Fiance : Hey baby! I’m sure you’re having a busy day at work, but let me just remind you to have your lunch on time. Well I’ve got fried chicken for lunch, and here’s a picture of my box of fruits.
Husband : (last seen today at 7:40 am)
Well, its not just him who has changed in this time. Being in a new place with added expectations & responsibilities can take a toll on you. Any new wife would agree with this:
Fiancee : Oh darling! I think you’re so sexy, that I could make love to you every hour of everyday!
Wife : *SNORE*
And with this, the husband rests his case.
