• Sometime ago we had asked you guys what you wanted us to talk about. One of the topic was “Struggles of first year of marriage”. We are 2 years in but really just crossed 1 year because we only started living in the same country a year ago. You could say that we are still in our honeymoon phase where we are all lovey-dovey and doing cutesy couple things. While we may not have had very challenging struggles, we’d call our struggles periods of “exciting adjustments” ☺️.
Learning to live with a new person can be a challenge - we all have our own ways of doing things and both Romy and I can be very particular in how we do things. Romy simply tends to do them much slower than me (i.e. he takes forever to do dishes but hey, at least he does it 😋). We’re also used to different schedules- I’m an early bird and he’s a night owl. Well an early bird compared to him but we managed to find happy mediums. Compromise is always key, as we’ve said in the past. We’ve also spoken in the past about communication and the challenges there. Understanding how to communicate with each other has also been an adjustment. As our marriage ages, we’ll surely have more real struggles come up. InshaAllah the adjustments we make now, will help us take on the struggles that lie ahead.
