Our Marriage Q&A
Hey guys! Last week I asked on instagram if some of you would be interested in a Q&A of our marriage and a lot of you said yes. So here are our top favorite questions!
Q. How did you two meet?
A. We met at the YMCA, Summer '13. He was a lifeguard and I was a swim instructor. Although, I knew who he was before and had the biggest crush on him since I was like 16. But we officially met and became really good friends that Summer.
Q. How long did you date before getting married?
A. We dated for a few months the summer of 2013 but broke up. We started dating again fall 2015 and that led to marriage on May 2016. Even though there is a gap there we both knew each other really well and remained friends during the time that we weren't together.
Q. How did you know you were right for each other?
A. It is very hard to describe the feeling but the best way I can put it is "when you know, you know". Yes, everyone says that but it is the honest truth. I knew he was the one because thinking of ever doing this life without him made me really scared and I would cry every time that crossed my mind. I really couldn't imagine spending my life with anyone else and marrying him brought so much peace to my heart.
Q. Did things change right away, or has your relationship become more special?
A. I feel like certain things change when you get married. But as far as our relationship becoming more special, it certainly has. There is a bond that you have with that person that you just don't have with anyone else. We are each others best friends, we are there for each other through thick and thin, and we have each made each other a better person.
Q. Do you guys tell each other everything or do you keep some things to yourself?
A. Before we got married we were very open with each other. So going into marriage we both knew each other really well. About our past and what we wanted in our future. We still tell each other everything. We probably are more open about things than most couples. We love it!
Q. When do you plan on having kids? And how many?
A. We both really want kids, but we want to experience life first. We want to travel, try new things, live life just us two before bringing kids into this world. // And we want 3 maybe 4 kids!
Q. Did you live together before you got married?
A. We did not live together before marriage. Call me old fashion but I have always wanted to wait to move in with someone until marriage. And no, I don't regret my decision. I actually think our marriage is more exiting because of that! (my personal opinion).
Q. Why did you get married so young?
A. Haha, I can't tell you how many times I have gotten this question. I feel like I got married at the perfect time! The way I view it is when you know you want to spend the rest of your life with someone and both of you are ready for that next big step, why not? It just means you get to do this crazy, wild life together for longer. Getting married young is the bomb!
Q. How do you keep your marriage exciting and not fall into a routine?
A. Everyone is always saying to never let your marriage fall into a routine, but we have found that it is very unrealistic to constantly try to keep your marriage from falling into a routine. The trick is to choose a healthy routine for your marriage and then stick to it. Of course, we are not suggesting to never go out of your way to do something fun and different. We are 100% all about that! But it is not logical to freak out when you are not doing something different or exciting constantly.
Thanks for being part of this wonderful journey with us!
Here are some wedding pics (that I haven't posted before) because why not? haha
