Marriage is a lot of change. A lot of compromise. A lot of giving. A lot of taking. It's a lot of transition. Even just the small things like the side of the bed you sleep on. The time you go to bed. Doing the dishes. Cooking for two. Laundry for two. Where to keep your make up. What shows you like on tv. Where the dishes are put in the kitchen.
Changing your name maybe one of the most time consuming transitions in marriage. But it's not the only huge change... there is a lot of change.
Change isn't a bad thing. It just takes time to get used to. It's kind of exciting to watch all the peices fall into place.
