This is a rant
I feel like this question is similar to:
“So, how’s it feel to be one year older?”
Well, sir. I feel completely different compared to yesterday! It’s amazing! Things are so different! I’m so glad you asked.
I’m sure I might feel different if above-mentioned marriage meant that I was in the same country as hot husband. Or same continent.
But we aren’t. I’m patiently waiting for my name change paperwork and the final marriage certificate, so I can change things…like life insurance beneficiaries. Yea, that’s going to make me feel different.
I like being able to say husband. And I’m still shocked they let us get married. But my other half is still on the other side of a video screen.
And if anyone says, “well at least you have video chat.” Yes, thank you. I am keenly aware that the technological advances have helped me simulate normal relationship activities for two years. If I wanted to look at the bright side, I would have an hour ago when I was crying in my shower.
You know what else gets me? All these dude who are like:
So what’s your name now?
Bro. It has been a week. Do you know how much paperwork and shit you have to do to change your name? And, you are asking me about this while we are standing in Moldova. So, really?
Then my hot husband, he who I love and cherish says this:
“What’s so hard about deciding what to change your name?”
I don’t think hot husband really thought this question through. My internal response was:
“$:&/_)$$ it’s my name!”
Also, its a dickton of paperwork. And I feel like I always get stuck with the paperwork. Paperwork to get married. Paperwork to get a marriage license. Paperwork to change my name.
Meanwhile, every dude I meet asks me how married life is or what my name is now.
So, in answer to the question of the hour:
Its a pain in the ass.
