First Anniversary Spa day anyone?

… starting your first year as a married couple has been a (mostly) wonderful experience.

You’re still in the honeymoon phase. Perhaps you’re still learning about each other. Even getting used to being around each other 24/7 and figuring out how to make this thing work. You’re also still getting used to the new normal of married life: having someone else around all the time; making major decisions together; splitting up chores and responsibilities between two people (and maybe more); spending lots of quality time together when you’d rather be doing something else; sleeping with someone who makes farting noises at night (or snores).

So far, so good! And there’s no reason why it won’t continue as long as both of you are willing and able to put in some effort.

You made it!

Congratulations! You made it through your wedding, and now you’re here in the first year of marriage. Congratulations as well on a whole year of having to deal with each other’s quirks and habits. Did he forget to take out the trash again? Did she drink all the milk straight from the carton like an asshole? You get through it because you love one another, but that doesn’t mean that your relationship doesn’t have its ups and downs.

Celebrate your success!

But then again, even if you don’t always get along perfectly, there are still things that are just so important to be grateful for:

  • You got married in front of all your family and friends
  • Your parents didn’t disown either one of you after seeing how much money they sunk into this event (hopefully!)


Congratulations on making it to the end of your first year as a married couple. Here’s to many more years together!
