9 Cliches I Have Had To Accept As True Since Being Married

Aren’t cliches about love gross? They make me want to barf. Here are a couple of gross cliches that are super disgusting.

1. When you know you know

It is strange and just a little unnerving to realize that we didn’t totally know each other when we got engaged. I have learned a lot of things about Scott since being married, for example that he is planning on giving his son his middle name, which is Eugene. This was not exactly in my plan, but strangely the more time goes I think it is the name all cute boys should have.

2. Absence makes the heart grow fonder

Sometimes I miss him while I’m at work. Yuck.

3. Marriage is waking up next to your best friend

We never really want to hang out with people. Partly because we are curmudgeons, partly because we’re jerks, but maybe also because we just like each other?

4. Love is blind

Once he told me it was “a beauty zit.”

Also supports my scrunchie habit

5. Laughter is the best medicine

Sometimes I get mad and then he makes me laugh, which makes me more mad because I wanted to be mad. He is super manipulative like that.

6. I thought I loved you then

I like him so much more now.

7. Timing is everything

Scott and I both agree it would not have worked out for us had we met nine years ago while living in neighboring dorms. I had dark brown hair as the result of a very poor decision and am also sure I could not have fit into his pants.

8. Nice guys finish last



9. We were meant for each other

It’s as gross as it is true. Here’s to another year of eating my words.

    I started following your blog a few months ago. I really love your articles and my favorite one is the one you wrote about the parking problem at work. I think I almost died laughing reading that.

    You’re a really good looking couple! My boyfriend and I have been together for 6 years now and I can really relate to this article as well. We’ve had to del with many obstacles to actually be together as we didn’t live in the same country, but now that we do it’s definitely worth it!

    Oh, yeah. Did no one tell you about the Eugene “gene”? Welcome to the family. 🙂

    I liked #5 the best — the last part.
