Emily and I have now been married for five months, and there is a difference. It's subtle, but I can feel it. I can feel it in how I view her, and I can feel it in how I view myself. Daily life still plays out as it did before, but it's now grounded in a singular, permanent foundation.

I'm More Than My Marital Status

Casey Dembowski

For the 20 months of our engagement, wedding planning took over my brain.
