    7 Important Things All Newlyweds Must Know

    For newlyweds, the first couple of weeks, and maybe even months, of married life usually takes a lot of getting used to. But when you’re both open to each other and you have a lot of patience to work through it all, you both will learn that marriage gets easier and easier as time goes by.

    Below are essential things all newlyweds must know:

    1. The adjustment bureau

    As newlyweds, keep in mind that everything is going to be an adjustment. You were your own person before you met your spouse and you still are. There will always be things that you will not like about each other. It might be as trivial as the way he chops onions or the way she folds your shirts after washing.

    Keep in mind that you have lived separate lives before this union, and will always have your own personalities to carry with you. You may not always eat the food that your spouse likes or the sounds they make when they sleep.

    It will be months of adjustment for you both as a newlywed couple. Be patient and understanding. If you feel like it’s overwhelming, talk to your spouse. Surely, your spouse is also feeling the same way. Living together and starting a new life together is not a game. Both of your lives are now entangled, for good.

    2. It’s just you and me against the world

    The world isn’t ganging up on you, but if it does, you know there’s one person that will never let you down. Having a spouse is like having an extension of you, going with you anywhere, loving you more than you love yourself and will do everything to make you happy. Even willing to risk their life to protect you.

    As sentimental as all this sounds, it also means that it’s just you and your spouse responsible for each other. So always be ready to be depended upon as you are each other’s source of strength.

    3. You both have money on your mind

    This is real adulthood where you both have responsibilities. You pay your own bills, buy your own food, pay for rent or for the car, and save up for the future. It is not a joke anymore and you can’t be a free loader. Now that you are married, the two of you need to budget your money wisely.

    4. The name game

    In some cultures, the wives have the option of using their father’s surname, which is what they have been using since birth or they may opt to adopt their husband’s surname. There’s the thrill of changing the surname and letting the whole world know that she has been absorbed into her husband’s family.

    Yet, keep in mind that before the wife was married, she had several things under her name as well. Bank accounts, passport, licenses, etc. Changing these important documents might also take time and can be a stressful phase for the wife.

    5. Two heads are better than one

    From now on, everything that needs a decision will be decided by both spouses. And this is the most difficult part of getting married, especially if one of you is incredibly independent or strong-willed.

    There are so many things to discuss now that it’s just you and your spouse. The sooner that you get everything smoothed out, the better it will be for the two of you.

    6. Never-ending to-do list

    You will notice that it seems like yesterday that you cleaned the car, and now you’re cleaning it again. Or that you feel like you only recently bought groceries, and yet you are running out of food to eat.

    Being two responsible adults means that there are errands and tasks that need to be done daily, weekly or monthly. There is no one else that would remind you of these. Having a system that will work for the two of you will be good, so you won’t forget anything important.

    7. Enjoy quality time together

    As newlyweds, you two are both excited about the activities that you do together. While it might be true that you’ve done some when you weren’t married yet, everything seems different now that you are married.

    Like planning for vacations, or which recreational activities should you both spend on. Now that you’re married, you both need to give consideration to the things that you will both enjoy. It’s not like the husband wants to go play golf, while the wife just sits around the whole day and does nothing.

    Marriage is a compromise, which is why spending quality time with each other should always be something that newlyweds will enjoy.
