To begin with, I'm not a very romantic person. I don't like Valentine's day, I don't like cheesy love movies (ok this is a lie, I actually love The Notebook, but it's the only one), I don't love getting flowers and I think most romantic gestures are more awkward than cute.
Me and my husband didn't have a youtube friendly proposal or a fairytale wedding. I actually dropped in at a random hair salon an hour before we got married, but only because it was raining outside and I asked them to dry my hair haha. And 5 minutes after I said "I do" I switched to sneakers since high heels isn't my thing.
It's funny how I fall more in love with my husband every day. And I have a strong feeling we'll never fall out the honeymoon phase since we've never created a honeymoon phase for us. People always talk about how hard it is going back to their everyday life after being in that wedding bubble where you first plan the whole thing for a year and then live in that honeymoon bubble for a while after. But we've never created this unrealistic bubble where we ignore everything else.
In fact we've probably had the least dreamy wedding year in the history. I was hospitalized, I had a period of deep depression because of my career situation, my eating disorder took a lot of time and energy etc. I've decided not to talk about my husband's private life as you know, and sticking to that I'll only say that he had almost as much going on as I did.
But everything has just made us the strongest team I know. He's not only the most gorgeous person that I just can't seem to get enough of, but he's also my best friend. I remember laying in the hospital feeling the most ill I've ever felt. He skipped exactly everything for the whole time I was there and came in the first thing in the morning and spent every day by my side on a chair next to my bed. And he left long after the visitor hours were over, late evening when I was already half asleep. Right there and then I was 100% sure I was going to be in love with this man forever.
I guess this post is my answer to what type of marriage we have. We do everything together, we laugh a lot, we like eating in bed, we have the total opposite taste in music, we talk a lot about everything, we discuss world problems, we dance with our dog and we never say goodbye without saying I love you.
Ps. We do buy matching clothes though hahaaa...
