Today we are showcasing a post by Allie McCarty from her blog The Newish Wife.

Why Being Married Young is Hard

Ok..maybe not that young…but it sure feels like I’m married to a child sometimes…

Just hear me out.

I’ll be the first to admit, even though I THOUGHT I knew what to expect when I got married, I honestly didn’t have a clue. After two years of marriage, it’s blatantly obvious that my husband and I are two completely different people. The things we see in movies, it’s all crap. There’s no such thing as such an easy happy ever after. Let me tell you a secret… CONTINUE READING HERE.

My name is Allie and I am twenty-three years old. Three years ago, I did something that, in today’s society, is considered a horrible mistake for someone at that age: I got married!

My husband Tyler is the sweetest man I have ever met. Of course occasionally he gets on my nerves, but at the end of the day, there’s no one I’d rather spend my life with!
I began a blog many months ago, but I was never satisfied with trying to stay with one category, because I didn’t fit into one single category. I wasn’t a brand new wife, but i wasn’t a “veteran” either, so not a marriage counseling blog. I don’t have kids, but I do want them in the near future, so I’m not a mommy blogger. I’m not a chef, but I love to make my own meals, but not a cuisine blog. I work 40+ hours a week, but I enjoy reading home-maker blogs as well, but still not all about one or the other….so what was I to write about?
I sat around for a few days, brainstorming names and trying to pinpoint exactly what I wanted to blog about. I kept saying “I’m kind new of at marriage…I’m new-ish at this…” and it finally clicked: I’m The Newish Wife! So, to put it simply, I’m writing about me. I’m writing about how it feels to be new to marriage, new to life in general. Being new to being on your own and responsible for a household and my fur-babies and my husband. Being responsible for my own future and whatever lies ahead, and learning to deal with everything thrown at me. Whether it’s huge projects at work, a burnt Christmas dinner, or a leaky faucet and my husband isn’t home to help me fix it: you’ll definitely be reading about all of it!
