I've been married 2 and a half years. When my boy and I meet other young married couples they often comment on how hard the first year of marriage. But for us it simply hasn't been the case. I think part of this may be due to us moving into a share house when we got married.. We would be lonely what with working different hours all the time if there was no one else in the house. Not to mention the added finacial strain. Plus it means we get to deliberatly share time with people much more often, and not slink away into the marriage hideaway that often happens.
That's my dream for now.
