So my sister just got married a week ago. They didn't live together or anything before marriage. They spent the night together a few times, but never officially moved in.
Anyway, she cracks me up. She said she felt bad the other day, when she "had to ask him" for $90 to pay a bill. WHAT?! He's your HUSBAND!!! The reason he makes money is to pay the bills! lol!
She hasn't even officially moved in with him. His parents have been living in his house because they are trying to sell their own. She hates being there... so she goes to my house, or my parents house, or her place. lol. Married, and can't even live together. And no... apparently his parents haven't even OFFERED to move out.
Anyway, her job is year round, but it's the slow season so she's not getting very many shifts. She says she feels bad counting on his income. I'm like, wtf do you think stay at home mom's do? They stay at home. And he brings in the money. It's totally OKAY for you to be not working and use his income.
Anyway, did any of you have an adjustment period when you got married? Did you live seperately, or ask to borrow money, or anything else? I don't think DH and I ever had these problems. I can't remember....
