Marriage has taught me...
Well, it has been six months yesterday since Darling and I tied the proverbial knot and stepped into the murky and shark infested waters of married life. Continuing in the same vein, Daling has been the proverbial tower of strength during the panic attacks, tantrums moods and moments with which I responded to the minor crises we faced.
During this period, I have gathered many pebbles of wisdom. Many more are scattered around the boggy shores. Some may make those who are further down this beaten path shake their heads in nostalgia / frustration. They may serve as a heads up for those who wish to step in, and serve as more fodder for thought for those who are patently anti-matrimony. Here goes.
(Ahem) Marriage has taught me...
... that being cuddled to sleep is a luxurious experience, subconciously missed since childhood
... that the limbs of a sleeping male are incredibly heavy. A carelessly flung out arm could easily lead to suffocation
... that there is absolutely no underlying satisfaction in washing your husbands dirty socks
... that no matter when or where you decide to be intimate, it is always a good idea to double check if the door is locked
... that time for self is low priority and dwindles down close to zero
... that it is possible to develop an allergy to gold only on the 4th finger of your left hand
... that the once abbhored period can become a welcome beacon of successful family planing
... that you cannot eat so much as an extra cutlet without the aunty brigade wondering aloud if you're pregnant
...and the list goes on. Stay tuned for more!
