Adventures in Just-Married Life


Why ‘newlywedding’? The simple answer? It’s what we’re doing. We were married in the middle of an ice storm on New Year’s Day, and after several months of marriage, we’re starting to figure this thing out. It’s bliss, with blisters.

The complex answer? Like most Catholic couples, we tried our best to prepare for marriage. We met with our priest. We took a compatibility test. We went on a retreat. In the midst of invitation-addressing, caterer-booking, and wedding-dress shopping, we strove to focus on our impeding marriage, rather than the wedding hoopla. And for the most part, we succeeded. Sort of.

Now that we’re nearly nine months in, we’re getting the hang of being married. But we’re also realizing that marriage is not only something someone does, but something someone LEARNS to do. No matter what advice you were given, classes you took or tests you aced before the wedding, there’s going to be a learning curve. We’re getting better (hopefully) at married life and are hoping, you, dear readers, want to join us for the adventure as we share cute ideas, common pitfalls, and the little bit we’ve picked up along the way.

We’re hoping this site can be a community of newlywedders, whether it’s been five days or fifty years since you said your vows.
