The beginning of my married life

Well, I got married!

We've actually been married a little over two months now and things are going quite well. We did so much pre-marital preparation that we (so far) haven't found ourselves surprised by a whole lot.

On my part, it's been a bit of a struggle handling the way I do things versus the way Jenna does things (but we knew that was going to be the case). I just do my best to look at the situation first and say, "Does this REALLY have to be my way? Or do I just WANT it to be my way?" For the most part, I think I've been doing a decent job deciphering between the two.

Before getting married, I noticed I was kind of mourning my independence. I kept thinking about how I wouldn't really have my "own" space anymore and stuff like that. I knew it was a selfish desire and not a huge concern, but the thought still sat in the back of my mind. But I've found over the last couple months that I don't mind sharing my space. I don't mind having Jenna there when I go to bed and when I wake up in the morning. Actually, I rather enjoy sharing all that with her.

Same thing with money. Anyone who knows me knows how anal I am about money stuff. I'm that guy that monitors his credit score and plays all the games to maintain responsible finances. It kind of scared me merging all that with someone else. But, so far, it hasn't been a huge issue. Jenna understands my desire to monitor all that and lets me take care of it. Honestly, I think she prefers not having to worry about it.

So married life is great. It's obvious that God fulfills his promises of marriage when it's done the way He designed it. I'm looking forward to all the things He has in store for us!
