This whole wife thing is a little weird. Like I get to be with my best friend all the time. I get to see my forever boyfriend every day, that’s a dream come true. I cook him dinner and keep the house clean. All of my mother’s duties from when I was young are now my duties.
I have to say there are so many things that you don’t realize need to be done because your mom always just took care of it for you. I started to learn all of these little things while I was at school. I thought I had the hang of things and I thought being married would be just the same way. But instead of just taking care of myself I have the responsibility of taking care of all of Nolan’s things too. Making sure he has all of the things that he needs. Where I grew up with two sisters, all girls, it has been weird for me to move in and live with a boy.
I should clarify from when I said that I have the responsibility of taking care of Nolan and making sure he has all of his things and what not. Nolan is 100% capable of taking care of and picking up after himself. But where he works all day and I don’t, I want to make sure that he comes home to a clean home, dinner made for him and come to a happy place that he can relax and we can hang out and spend time together instead of worrying about cleaning and going grocery shopping and all of that. I WANT to do all of those things because right now, I feel like that is all I have to offer him where I am not working or going to school. All I have to offer him is taking care of the house and the errands and loving him as much as I can and giving him my support. I really hope that is good enough for him because that is all I know how to do.
When we were engaged and I was thinking a ton about marriage I knew this is how it would be. I knew what I was supposed to do, I had an idea of what it would be like taking care of someone else. I never knew the challenges that come with being a wife. I also never knew that I could love someone so much, so it makes all of the hard things so worth it and it gives me motivation to keep doing everything I can for Nolan.
I am no marriage expert but I truly believe that as long as your love each other and try your best to make each other happy that everything is going to be okay.
