What I've Learned Since Getting Married - Part 2

Last year at this time I was a newlywed just learning the ropes.

2 months into marriage I put together a list of Things I've Learned Since Getting Married

Now a year later I feel like I've got a hang of this whole wife and married thing and it would be good idea to do a list of things I have learned since getting married 15 months ago.

Please take notes:

Things I've Learned Since Getting Married Part 2:

1. No matter how big the queen size bed feels at the beginning of marriage, it will shrink. A lot. And pretty soon before you know it you will wake up in the middle of the night fighting for the covers. In the morning both parties will claim the other person was the culprit.

2. Cheese and crackers is not a suitable dinner for a growing man.

3. Neither is Macaroni and Cheese

4. Not every person who comes to your house wants to look at your Wedding Picture Album....I know, I was shocked also!

5. When the Hubster gives you a specific amount of money to spend for the month he means that amount. Not that amount times two.

6. If you ask, "Does this make my butt look big" and your husband busts out laughing hysterically, remove the article of clothing and throw away immediately.

7. If you cut off all of your hair and cry about it for a week, its possible that your husband may start to get annoyed with you.

8. Standing on the husband's guitar case while the guitar is enclosed is a big no no. A BIG NO NO.

9. Just because you get married doesn't mean you now have everything figured out, in fact that may be when all the questions begin.

10. Your husband's clothes on the floor do not necessarily mean they are dirty. In fact he may have put them there on purpose and then you will get in trouble when you wash them. Its all very confusing.

11. Things that seemed adorable and irresistible before marriage can tend to be a bit annoying after marriage. Example: A certain somebody playing the guitar as loud as possible during my favorite TV shows. Not many places to escape to in this teeny tiny apt.

So there is a snippet of some things I have learned.

Of course I have learned many other things, like how amazing marriage is, and how spending everyday with your best friend is truly amazing, but I'm not the mushy mushy type so we won't get into all of that.

I wonder what I will learn in the next year......

hahah this cracks me up! Okay and really what is it with guys throwing their clean clothes on the ground? How are we supposed to know that they're not dirty!!!

Rachel said...

#1 could not be more true in my marriage....we desperately need to upgrade to a king size!

Lauren Kelly said...

I loved this!!!!! :) I’ll be interested to see what you have learned in the next year. You’ll have to do another list!!

Rebecca Jo said...

I'll be married 14 yrs Wednesday & we just had a spat this morning about me washing a shirt that was clean... but it was on the floor so I picked it up & washed it... totally with you girlfriend!!!

Kaitlin said...

This list made me laugh so hard, especially about the laundry!

Thanks for the smiles!

elainaann said...

Love this post! I was defintely nodding my head in agreement with you. Little advice on the bed thing... when you add two dogs to the queen size bed it then feels like you are sleeping in a twin together. :)

Lauren said...

hahaha!!! I seriously love reading your posts!

Perfectly Imperfect said...

I loved this!! I feel like I'm still figuring this marriage thing out after 4 + years. I wonder if we'll ever truly get it!!

Jenny Lynn said...

So many of those are SO true! My husband and I have been married for about a year and a half and a preacher friend of ours asked us [not too long after the year mark] if we had learned how selfish we were. He said he thought that was the major lesson for year one, and we really did learn that lesson plus a lot more!

PinkSass said...

Good list. :)

Courtney said...

I know what you mean about the clothes on the floor. Apparently the floor is also another way to place clothes for the next day.

Amber said...

These are awesome! I completely agree on the clothes part, which is why I make my husband wash his own darn clothes! He did for years before we got married, who am I to make him stop now, right?

Lindsey said...

This was hilarious!! I totally agree with you on the queen bed and I have learned about the clothes on the floor rule as well. I had no idea! ha!

Melissa said...

This totally cracked me up!!

Kristin @ Blue Skies said...

I'm with you on #1! After almost 2 years of marriage we recently upgraded to a king size bed. I now wonder how in the world we ever slept on a queen! A king size bed makes all the difference :)

Emma-leigh said...

ditto on the clean clothes on the floor. Still trying to figure that one out.

Tara Gibson said...

haha love this list! the laundry one cracked me up!

Brown Girl said...

Thank you for this. I took notes and I hope they will help me when I get married. I'm sure going to need it! ;)

Trina said...

My hubby lays his clean jeans over his dirty clothes basket. I've learned just to not do his laundry. lol

After 8 years, I'm still learning stuff! :D

Melissa said...

being that i have been married for a little over a year now, i can COMPLETELY relate to this post. i have learned some of the exact same things! i loved this one!!!

Allison said...

I love this! I'm getting married in May. I can't wait to find out what I learn!

Jenna said...

Writing it all down!!!! When I get married, I am going to give my husband a xerox copy of your lessons and say, "hi sir, please check which ones you think will apply." :-)

Summer said...

This is cute. I get in trouble for washing seemingly dirty clothes and for throwing away wads of paper that clearly resemble trash. :)

Mark and Kathryn said...

ha ha I totally agree on the guitar playing during tv, and the meals. Cheese and crackers is totally a meal, especially if there are apples involved. (-:

Heather said...

So funny and all so true...especially about the BED!! We upgraded to a King in year 4 of our marriage and have never looked back!! :)

Michemily said...

That's why there's a comforter for each person in Germany. That way, no one fights about who stole all the covers.

d.a.r. said...

Love this post!!!

Rachel said...

Awww! I love the list. It made me crack up! :)

Maureen Thomson said...

I am a wedding officiant and I'm considering passing along your list to all of my couples. it's brilliant! (And yes, beds definitely "shrink" with time. My husband and I won't even attempt anything less than a King!)

Rachel H. said...

I too have learned so much from being married...it's funny, because I could eat cereal or something for dinner daily, but not Grant. He needs a substantial meal! I sometimes am thrilled when he is out of town or just gone for the evening, because it allows me to not cook! Ha-Ha! :)

Amy@My Front Porch said...

Oh my stars, I loved this! I might have to *steal* this idea for my blog sometime.

Dave and I have the EXACT.SAME.PROBLEM. with his dirty clothes. I finally told him "If you're clothes are dirty put them in the hamper. If they're not in the hamper I assume they are clean and I won't wash them." He once went an entire month without jeans because he didn't put them in the hamper. I think he got the message :)
