As of today, Brad and I have been married for six months. This past half of a year seems to have flown by!
The daily life changes that we adjusted to as husband and wife were actually quite simple. Sometimes I wonder if our comfortable couple pattern is so easy because of the big things that happened so early in our marriage that make the small stuff no big deal.
I asked how long we could claim newlywed status. It seems like a year is a common measure, and according to older etiquette wedding presents are not late/rude if they are sent up to a year after the wedding date… so we’re halfway out of the newlywed phase. I think.
Even when we were dating we got called an “old married couple” because of the way that we interacted. When we got engaged there was a huge buzz about our wedding plans for a few months then us getting married became
old news less interesting (one minor downside of a long engagement). I kind of wonder if we’ve already hit the “not-so-newlywed” status in many of the circles we’re in.
What do you think: How long are you considered a newlywed?
