"Men: When i got married I didn't expect....."


  

          

Loaded question, but curious on experiences and opinions

What were the biggest "grass roots" changes you experienced once you got hitched?

More specifically, what changes did you experience in your week to week, month to month life?

I suppose this can apply to longer changes; but I am curious on the stuff that directly impacted you that had you saying "didn't think about that one"

What parts did you feel prepared for and what parts did you not?

-The Knicks’ coaching search still includes a lone frontrunner, Kurt Rambis, whose qualifications for the position include a strong relationship with Jackson and a willingness to take the job.

they have no boundaries. Her pops will come over and hang a calendar on the wall like it's his crib. Mom will make too much food and just leave pots of soup and shit on the back porch. Her uncle came to visit for a week and got bored, so he took it upon himself to stain the back porch with glossy furniture stain on a 98% day. They don't have 100 words of English between the three of them.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

How stressful and hectic upkeep on a house can be

How to keep the sex interesting and passionate, I'm not built to choke fuck a woman, then watch her make lunch for my kids then kiss em goodbye with the mouth I just jizzed in

Anything associated with landscaping, that curb appeal is very important

I have more but I think thats enough for now



does it really matter?

wonder what bin's doing?

its incredible the amount of "thinking you know yourself" you have until you have a mirror to show you who you really are

this probably doesn't make sense but nothing has "shown me me" like this marriage

the recognition of little stuff that is annoying that you didn't know because you never experienced it before

all the "i'd never...." stuff that gets tested is the biggest trip

but she expects me to be home all the time and to talk and share my feelings
I tried to tell her I have none... that went over like a fart in church...

biggest thing is really having to think of new things to talk about and balancing kid/family/wife/alone time... that's huge for me bc I was single and spending days w/o even talking to anyone let alone having meaningful conversation.

I got a good life man

our Saturdays usually start early in the morning for either a hockey game or baseball game. Depending on the season. Home by lunch time. Chill for a minute. Do a bit of cleaning. maybe some drive way hockey or a walk to the park. Have dinner and watch a movie on the couch. Wife and kid are usually out by 9. I might chill until 11 because I gotta cook Sunday breakfast and do it all over again. Shit is amazing.

19. "It's a series of little changes"
In response to Reply # 0


          

a few changes come with getting married... the only one that took me by surprise was her insistence on cutting down on my sports activities... I had already gone from 5x/wk to 2x/wk and shhe continued to feel that was outrageous. She's changed her tune and the past few years has herself been getting out to play 2x a lot of weeks and I think realizes she is happier when she does so.

But yeah, there'll be some changes with the marriage, then more with the baby, then more with the house, then more with the second baby. If you can both deal with the changes and the associated stresses, you'll be fine.
