Things I've Learned in 1 Year of Marriage

TPH and I just celebrated one year of marriage. Can you believe it? It seems like just yesterday, we were sharing our exciting news via social media like all good millennials should.

Now that we're practically marriage pros, I thought I'd impart some wisdom to those who haven't quite hit this milestone (like our friend Juliette, who is getting married tomorrow). Thus, I present to you things I've learned in one year of marriage:

1. When taking selfies with your spouse, make sure to take a bunch, then steal his/her phone and delete the ones you don't love so that he/she doesn't "accidentally" post them on social media.

2. When you want something, forget hints. Just tell your spouse exactly what you want. Explicitly. Lots of times. Then, fake being surprised when you finally get it.

3. Don't laugh at your spouse's jokes too much, or else they'll start thinking they're a stand-up comedian and keep trying. 

4. Stake claim to the last piece of bread(/pizza/pie/insert_food_item_here) or else your spouse will probably think it's his/hers, then eat it even though you were saving it for lunch the next day.

5. Don't ask your spouse's opinion on home decor. Trust me. Just buy what you like then pretend like it's been up forever. Ignore if he/she asks questions.

6. When talking about something important, give your spouse a heads up that you are talking about something important.

7. And lastly, when you have an argument, instead of doing it together in private, do what we do: crowdsource and ask the internet. 

You're welcome in advance, newlyweds.


  1. Haha I love this! Happy anniversary! I can't believe it's been a year already.

  2. Some professionals say that traditional film is better, with a warmth and quality that you can't obtain with digital cameras. click over here
