ohhhh "The Honeymoon phase"
It's interesting living in newlywed love- and it's even more interesting to me how people dismiss my wedded bliss as a "honeymoon phase". According to most, my joy is temporary. Describing being married as "wonderful" will pass. Soon I will really understand, they say. Soon I'll realize.
What?! (is wrong with you people...)
Ok so maybe I don't have the privilege of perspective on this topic. But I do have one view that most do not- I am still in it. and we have plans to stay in it. So stick that in your pipe and smoke it.
What I really think, is that people should ask newly-weds for marital advice. Because there are certain things that, apparently, only people who are newly married do to and for each other. and I see people with crumbling marriages and I wish that they would ask me, "what do you think I should do?" because I could tell them things like
do little things for him just to make him happy
have sex like it's something new
get him a glass of water.. (even when you're already in bed)
talk, talk, talk
put him first... and his needs.
go outside and start the car and brush of the snow
give the benefit of the doubt
save the last french fry for him
and forgive. (even when you aren't apologized to)
but they won't ask me. because I'm a newlywed. and I don't know what I'm talking about.
