I’m Married Now

Well, I’m married now. I’m officially officially off the market. And it’s different. For him, maybe not so much yet, but for me, yes. I can feel the difference.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good different. Change is good. Marriage is good. And I think a lot of times marriages don’t work is because people don’t want to change. So if you don’t want to change, certainly don’t get married. Don’t even have a relationship if that’s the case.

But yes, I am Chanel Moore now. And when I say it’s different right now, I mean that it’s uniquely different. I sleep in the bed with someone, and it’s good. That’s a fun part.

I share finances with someone else. I make decisions with a counterpart. I have to consider someone else in pretty much everything I do now. And that’s not to say that we hadn’t started doing these things before we married (except sleeping together, please WAIT! It’s so worth it.). But it was almost like we did those things because it was nice to do. Now it’s a must.

I’m sure I will continue to chronicle about marriage. And I know it won’t be easy, but while it’s good, I want to talk about it. I want to have this accountability. I want to look back on this on tough days and remember why we got married.

I am married. And it’s different, but it’s good.

    I have been married 31 years and it is still goocd!!!!!! I love my husband and I love being married. Does the marriage require work, yes. However the return makes it so worthwhile.

    This was really good. Well-written, thoughtful, and thought provoking. Your writing is authentic and real. It touches people. That’s really important. Cultivate your gift. Use it for good. Let it take you places you never dreamed you could go. Our gifts make room for us. Never forget that. 🙏🏾
