The First Year of Marriage: a Trainwreck Fairy Tale Told in GIFs 👰❤️‍☠ ...


So, it turns out there are a lot of misconceptions about the first year of marriage. Pop culture paints a prettier picture, so for once reality TV tells a truth -- an unintentional truth, maybe, but a truth nonetheless. Shows like "Married at First Sight," "Arranged," and "90 Day Fiance" have a certain, shall we say, trashiness about them, but within their provocative, overblown dramas, you can spy some of the real ones newlyweds go through. Don't worry if they seem familiar. You won't always want to smother your partner while she or he is sleeping.

1. You're Married!

You're Married!

You're married! Finally! You're wife and wife or husband and husband or wife and husband – you're in love and so happy and so together and it's WONDERFUL!

You Know Everything is Going to Be Perfect

This is exactly how our 1st year of marriage played out!! We're actually considering babies earlier than planned. LoL
Omg yes!!! I have to show this to my husband lol. We've only been married 4 months. We've already had our first argument, dry spell, all of that! We've been together almost 5 years total though, so we knew each other very well. Best decision ever :)
The way wife and husband now comes last lol
