This is, hands down, the most annoying question to ask a newlywed.
Newlyweds, where ya at? Agree? Disagree?
Seriously, this question drives me insane.
Whether married life is fantastic or it's awful, you don't want to talk about it.
If it's fantastic, you feel like an asshole telling your not-married friends how great and wonderful it is. Who wants to be that person?
If it's awful, you don't want to complain and air out your dirty laundry. Or worse, scare this not-married person off of marriage forever.
Or maybe you do want to do that.
Either way, it took me about a week of being married to realize that I would get asked this question alot. At that point though, my response was "Well, we've been on our honeymoon, but so far it's great!" About a month into it, "Well, it's summer break so we get to hang out a lot. It's great!"
Now, eight months down the line, it's still great. Two years from now, even if we have a screaming baby and haven't done the deed for a month, it will still be great.
I think the point is that saying those vows do not actually change much. Sure, there are growing pains, but there's no "Oh, us married people know something you relationship people don't know."
So asking how married life is like, there's some terrible secret about marriage that newlyweds have yet to discover. Sure, as a married person, I don't go out with my friends every weekend and I don't hit on hot guys at the bar but guess what? I don't want to. I'd rather stay at home with my best friend in my pajamas watching a movie.
So, how's married life? Married life is just fine.
