Yes, I am a newbie wife, a very remarkable yet challenging role in a lifetime. I used to be a single for more than 30 years and I was so blessed to experience many things through this phase of my life. Although I had 7 years of relationship with my ex-boyfriend (Who is my husband now!), still to change the status and the role is not as easy as I thought. I just got married on 28th Nov 2015 (Yeay!!!), and it has been 44 days of living my marriage life. Changing the status is easier for me because people can recognize me recently from the Status of my relationship on Facebook, my wedding ring, my new title as Mrs. JJ even my attitudes according to some of my friends (the last one is a bit weird because I’m still wondering about and observing myself).
Meanwhile, the role of wife is a bit harder because I need to wake up every morning and convince myself that I’ve been his life partner already. My habits need a re-adjustment switch. Nerves in my brain are suddenly working 24 hours (Too exaggerating) although in fact I just need to cook for somebody, to prepare the shopping list, to do laundry, to iron, to clean the room, to keep being a good (and even better) lover and friend for my husband, and to…bla..bla..bla….at the end, I just need some adjustment….a deep breath… and rely more on God in helping me to run my role wisely and wholeheartedly…Thank God, I’m a lucky woman to have Mr. JJ as my husband. He becomes so useful ups…..(not good! Inggrit….) I mean so helpful by giving hands to do practical house chores with me. I realize that to live this role is a a whole life learning…and I am ready to keep growing as a strong, mature and happy wife by the grace of God.
