Surviving The First Year Of MarriageMonday, September 07, 2015
Yay we survived the first year of marriage! I've heard a lot of people saying that the first year of marriage can be the hardest for newly weds, but for us it was strangely easier than the time we were dating? I guess it was also because I got pregnant just before the wedding so our first year was mainly him "giving in to the pregnant woman", and then us being obsessed with Kayla. We do still have a few big fights here and there, but at the end of the day we know that no matter what happens we are still family.
Our anniversary was actually last month, so this is a pretty late post heh. We had a quick dinner at Breadstreet Kitchen, followed by a short walk around MBS, and then went home to continue with work lol. I did feel special though cos D had flowers sent to the house
(if not I will get angry haha), and he was willing to help me take #OOTDs around MBS :D
Us 3 years ago at MBS for D's birthday ♥︎
To be honest, I haven't exactly been the best spouse and have been taking him for granted for some time now. Am recently realising what a great husband I have and am feeling more appreciative of the little things he does for me. One thing I've learnt from my marriage is that comparison really kills. Whether it is comparing how much your spouse has done vs how much you've done or comparing someone else's spouse to yours, it will never end well. At the end of the day you will just be comparing somebody else's highest point to your spouse's lowest point and end up hurting their feelings or build up a lot of resentment if you think you've done a lot more for the relationship than your spouse. Everybody loves in different ways and it's important to accept that :)
So anyway, at this moment I'm just thankful that we are still able to laugh at each other's lame jokes and be a team both at work and at home ♥︎
