If you get married in your early 20’s I’m sure life after marriage, especially newlywed life, is comprised of sex, unicorns, and rainbows! However, I think when you get married in your mid 30’s or later the concept of romance and intimacy after marriage profoundly changes. So many television shows and movies over the last century have romanticized newlywed life for so many.
In several months I’m coming up on my one year anniversary of marrying my one and only, my main squeeze, and my partner in crime. I can only share with you what I’ve learned thus far and I’m sure the life lessons will continue to roll in as the year’s progress.
Being a newlywed comes with so many new adventures, challenges, and compromises. I think we were unique as a couple respect to understanding the intimacies of daily life because of my situation with spinal cord injury. My “now” husband had to intimately understand everything that comes along with my care, my life, and issues I face. I find so many couples don’t really get to know one another until years after marriage, but there are advantages to having a disability as you really need to show your partner your whole self because they need to know what they are getting into if they want to be with you for life.
