Congratulations! You are one of the lucky few who are privileged enough to have found a love that works and you’ve decided to take the next step. Life as a married woman can be exhilarating. You take on a whole mountain of new challenges and responsibilities. You are thrust into an unfamiliar world of maturity and adulthood, and the changes are coming left and right. You often find yourself wanting to slow things down just so you can appreciate all the milestones you’re surpassing. We understand that. Marriage brings with it substantial change in peoples’ lives. It can sometimes get a little overwhelming but it helps to know that you’re not the only one who has to struggle through life’s drastic changes. It also helps to know what to expect when the married life comes knocking at your door.

This time, you’re actually making a conscious decision to choose your roommate, and your choice should last you the rest of your life.

2. You Automatically Feel a Little More Mature

This is it. If there’s any social institution that seals your status as an adult, it’s probably marriage. You’ve made the conscious decision to start a family of your own and that’s one of the biggest responsibilities anyone could ever take.
