And its true. I started feeling married the first time I committed to myself to be with this person. Yes, there were things that I held on to, but even some married people I know still have their own apartments, their own bank accounts, etc.
The things that changed after the wedding: I no longer had the anxiety that one day the whole thing would be over, randomly and out of the blue. And I felt more comfortable talking to my husband about anything because I knew he was now stuck with me! But those two things feel natural like walking or breathing now. Even my wedding ring feels like its always been there.
So after the first year, how does it feel like to be married?
I don't know.
