Wedding Week: Q&A

For the second installment of wedding week, we thought we'd chat about marriage interview-style. Although I couldn't convince Adam to make this a video interview, he did agree to voice his opinions on the ol' blog.

What's been the weirdest/most surprising thing about your first year of marriage?

Adam: Before getting married, we never used pet names. We tried doing it a couple of times, but pet names always seemed awkward and forced. Now we use them ALL THE TIME. It started almost immediately after getting married, too. Neither of us have any idea why.

What's been the hardest part of marriage so far?

Caitlin: Not having very many married friends. Well, all of my best friends are married or at least seriously dating. But they are across the country in Texas. And I miss them a lot. We know married couples from church here, but since we are Catholic ya know, they pretty much all have babies. So they're a little busy. But I guess that's what you get for getting married in college and not being Mormon, huh?

Adam: Sharing a computer. Whenever we do things like write this blog post together or look up stuff about trips, we fight over who gets to type and complain about the other person typing too slow.

What's the biggest lesson you've learned this year?

Adam: Don't rent cars! We rented a car for my family's reunion in Florida and also for our trip to Washington, D.C. over spring break. On both occasions, we ended up spending almost twice as much as we anticipated due to insurance and fees and such.

If you could go back and change one thing about the wedding, what would it be?

Caitlin: Look into renting a fancy vintage car for our getaway ride. {Side note: Adam just said,
"Geez, can you type any slower?"}

Adam: Since I had to work during the week before the wedding and my friends were all out of town for the summer, I didn't really have much time for a bachelor party before hand. Also, a chocolate fountain would have been cool.

Do you think year two will be easier or harder than year one?

Caitlin: I would say harder. This first year of marriage was ridiculously easy in a lot of ways. But year two will definitely involve some stressful decisions and big changes.

Adam: The same. Maybe a little easier, if Caitlin finally learns to type, say "Bless you," and turn off lights when she leaves a room.

Well, there you have it. Surprisingly, Adam wrote more than I did. That's a quite a rarity, folks! Also, he wants you to know that he was totally joking while making fun of me above. Sort of.
