Five Surprises of Newlywed Life

Five Surprises of Newlywed Life 

About six months after the Hubs and I were married, we were asked by the Couple to Couple League to write an article for their magazine Family Foundations. CCL asked us to write a list of five things that surprised us about newlywed life. The goal was to each come up with our own list of “high-five surprises” without consulting the other during the process.

The result of our “high-five” lists was a brief article that appeared in Family Foundations and several other Catholic media outlets over the past year and a half. You can read the full story here. 

When my Dad heard about the CCL “Five Surprises” story, he thought it was a neat idea, so he asked the Hubs and I to join him on his live talk show for a more in-depth discussion of the surprises of newlywed life.

The CD of that radio interview was just released by Family Life Center International this week. You can purchase the CD here, and I’m told the MP3 download of the interview will be available for purchase on the same page in the next week.

It was fun for Pete and I to discover what the other thought about newlywed life with the article and radio interview we did. Maybe we’ll do a parenting version one of these days. Although I’d strongly suggest we switch the title around a bit. It would definitely have to be “The Five Life-Altering Mind-Blowing Body-Numbing Shocks of Becoming a New Parent.”
