I had only lived with one man before I met Mr Fix It and that was my daughter's father. We were never married and it lasted less than 2 years. I was 21 at the time which seems like ages ago now that I am close to 38. Crazy!
Anywho - Mr Fix It and I did in fact spend the night at each other's place sometimes during our six year relationship...but the last two years before we got married we didn't really stay over that often. I think I was relishing in my final days as an independent woman who didn't need to answer to anyone in her own home.
So when we first moved in together on the first day after our wedding, it was something I was wondering about...how would it all pan out? Would we easily settle into married life *AND* living together without any real issues or arguments? Or would it be a real adjustment phase that took some getting used to?
For the most part, we eased into it pretty well. Though I have to admit, Mr Fix It's bed (a Queen size) is truly not big enough for the both of us. He definitely moves around a lot when he sleeps and he made comments about how I really don't move much at all while sleeping. Yeah, good thing...because it is a pain learning to share a bed with someone. If we had a California King bed (something I have high on my list of priorities when we are ready to move into a new house in a few years hopefully), it would be no problem at all.
I am the type of sleeper that when I get up in the morning, if I slept in the bed alone, all I would need to do is pull the one top corner of the sheets and comforter up and throw a few pillows at the top and the bed is made. Not so much with Mr Fix It.
Half the time I wake up in the morning, the sheets and comforter are totally ripped out from every corner of the bed and are in complete disarray. I usually have to turn the comforter a few times to get it back in it's correct position to tuck it in.
Alas, sharing a bed - at least while actually trying to sleep in it - is not something I have been excited about when it comes to merging as a married couple.
What about you ladies? Any of you have similar problems or something else that has been difficult to adjust to while trying to live with a boy?
