I Got Married Because....
Marriage, I've found in these few short months, is a blessed institution, but in many ways, it is not exactly what I expected. To illustrate my confusion, I bring you, "I got married because."
I got married because....
1. I wanted to cook Paula Deen-style meals in my Southern Living-style home.
Duh, these things don't happen right away. Who knew, right? It's a tiny rental, decorated with my husband's books and the cat knick-knacks I got on the honeymoon. And I can't even find the Corningware. Call the pizza guy.
2. I wanted a companion.
Too bad, Kelly! I just figured this up. Since we got married, between jobs and vacations and moving and traveling, we have spent a maximum of three consecutive weeks together. So as of right now, we're more like good friends who get together whenever possible. Which isn't often.
3. I wanted to create a home.
Too bad we don't have one. Well, that's not entirely true. We have one, but after living there together exactly five days, Britt received a promotion, and we're moving to two states away. Time to look for a new new house. And pack everything. back. up. Marriages don't need stability, anyway. Do they?
4. I wanted to marry my husband. And since the marriage took, I really can't complain. But I will. Hey, you wanna hang up the wet bath mat once in a while?
Why did you get married? What about marriage was so not like you thought it would be?
