    Now that you are married...

    Hi dears, just thought I'll start a thread for those of us who are already married. The wedding is the start of a lifetime together and I'm sure we all can do with journey companions as we begin our married lives together!

    So while I guess there are some of us who are still brides-to-be, there may be some of us who are already wives? Do share interesting experiences/ challenges/ queries so we can all continue to support one another post-wedding!

    hi mellowhearts, im happy to finally finish the wedding actually. it's such a relief to get everything over and done. My advice to brides is to make sure that you enjoy the process and try not to be overwhelmed by everything. Take time to record down the things that you had to do for your wedding, be it in a blog, journal or something. it's very nice to read through past entries and see all the things you had gone through.

    that's usually the case. couples tend to rub off each other.

    I suppose it takes one to know one.. all the unknown habits that you didnt know abt your partner is magnified and replayed daily everyday until you either got to educate him or get used to it to improve the situation especially if the methods of doing things vary vastly.. Its quite a nightmare.. after having known someone for a significant no of years n then to know some nasty things.. but it would tie over within a period

    yes both of two know about the good and bad habits and try to maintain a good relation.
    In married life some problems occur but you must keep your patience and solve them politely.

    most impt thing to us after we started living tgtr is communication. we talk abt how we feel abt each's other habits. e.g. i hate it when hb sleeps on bed when he comes home w/o showering but after reminding him and talking abt it, things are getting better

    Hi mellowhearts, thanks for starting this thread. Great idea!

    So far one challenge I've faced is the I got pressured to be the "good housewife"... You know, as someone's wife I should wash his clothes, do housework, cook for him, etc. I don't disagree with all that, but the thing is I am working full time and there are no plans for me to quit or switch to part-time anytime soon. So, I felt it was unreasonable to expect me to fulfil the responsibilities of a typical stay-at-home housewife when I am working and contributing to the household financially as we'll. How come after a day's work, I have to do laundry and prepare tomorrow's breakfast, when my husband can just watch TV and go to sleep... And yet every month when the bills comes, I am expected to pay!

    Any wife feeling the same as me?!

    I feel such housework should be split bet hubby and wife as if the wife also need to contribute to household expenses since she is working, why cant the housework be shared with the hubby.
    For myself, my hubby help to take dishes for me to eat, helped me to prepare Milo everyday and take breakfast out for me to eat, helped me to take out the washed clothes to shine but i also have to be "auto" to help to wash the dishes left in the sink and clean the room.
    Talk to your hubby in managing the expectation.
