There were so many things that changed after I got married. Just two months after my nuptials, I gave up my job running political campaigns a job I'd been doing since mid-way through college) and moved to a new country. Before I got there, my husband had found us an apartment and bought us a car. My entire life changed within a few months of tying the knot. Luckily, though, there were so many things that didn't change about me once I was married, although some days it was a little hard to remember them.
People say the first year of marriage is the hardest, and it certainly felt that way for me. All those big life changes were really difficult to adapt to, especially all at once. However, I was aware that I was still myself, so while my circumstances and situation changed the core of me and who I was before I was married remained. Nine years later, that seems to still be the balance that allows us to enjoy a peaceful marriage: remembering who we are as individuals, but also knowing that we're committed to our marriage together.
Some things are bound to change about you when you get married, but remembering that not everything has to change can be comforting, especially during that initial shift into married life.
