As a newly married woman I’m experiencing so many new things in my life.
I came from a happy home in England to a happy but very different home in Lahore. Probably very different as I’m in a different country too and with that comes a different culture and way of living. I will talk about way of living in Lahore in another post.
Being married gives you those feelings you never had before. You love differently and you depend on each other. Everything is shared. Nothing is hidden. It is a beautiful thing if you are lucky enough to be in a loving marriage.
We share everything and always have a joke. It’s like living with your best friend and lover rolled into one. I’m sounding cheesy I know :S sorry!
There are bad points though. It takes a while to get used to a new family and for them to get used to you and if your anything like me it can be difficult as I’m a very shy person!
I had always lived with my parents before I was married even when I had a full time job I was with them. This is usually the case for girls in my culture but it was also my choice. I had a lot of freedom but I chose to stay at home, study near home and work near home.
Being married I now only rely on my husband especially as I’m still adjusting and trying to find a job. It feels strange waiting for him to come back from work when I used to be the one who was busy working and going to university. I miss being busy but I know it will take a while to adjust before I settle into some kind of job.
I must admit though. I love being married. Just hate the adjusting part! Getting there though with the help of my husband.
