How's Married Life?

For all of the married folks out there, especially if you are newlyweds, do you ever get tired of being asked this question? I can't even count how many times people have asked me how married life is! And I always say, "It's good! Busy!". But does busy really have anything to do with married life? No. And that is why I get weird looks when I say that. I don't know how else to answer that question, though. I am wishfully thinking that people will stop asking me soon. But then I remember that we've only been married for three months. So there's at least nine more months to go. And I'm sure people will still ask after that first year is over.

I'm not asking them how their married life is! Matthew and I are still trying to figure out a routine that works for us. I can't even figure out how to get a routine together for myself with work and classes! So to me, the word busy does apply to how married life is because my married life is insanely busy. Although, my life without marriage would be insanely busy as well.

And I can't help but compare this question to one like "How are you doing?" when one of their beloved family members or friends has just passed away. I mean how do you answer that? You can't. They're trick questions! I'm convinced of it. Nobody is going good after a loved one has passed. And no one is good right after they got married. There is just too much stuff running through your mind. You're too busy adjusting to this new change.

Oh don't worry, they'll stop asking. Because then they'll be too busy asking "When are you going to have babies?"
