Everyone asks this. But they only want one answer:
a) "Awesome." It is. Married life f'n rocks. But it is also
b) Not that different from shacked-up-together life. The big differences are: we have some great new kitchen equipment, and we are in the process of merging our debt.
c) Anticlimactic. Wedding-planning life was stressful, but it was exciting. The caterer not returning my calls. The can-I-find-a-slip-or-will-I-have-to-line-the-dress? crisis. The eleventh hour hunt for the polaroid camera. Now I'm faced with.... life. As in. Getting on with it.
It's a little daunting.
Not that I'd ever admit this when people say, "How's married life?"
