10 Things No One Tells You About Your First Married Easter
For some couples, their first married Easter is exactly like it was when they were dating. Other couples totally change the way they celebrate this holiday–for example, splitting the celebration between two families for the first time—and encounter the unexpected. To give you a sense of what you might be in for if this is your first Easter as a Mr. or Mrs., we asked Nesties to share what surprised them the first time they celebrated Easter as a married couple. (We kept their identities anonymous so they’d be brutally honest!) Here’s what they had to say:
“The whole concept of hunting for Easter eggs was completely new to him!” — A.A.
“When I was a child we would have a huge seven-course meal on Easter with 25 people. Our first married Easter was with her family, and dinner was a two-course meal with eight people. It was such a let down.” — J.R.
“His family is kosher — mine is not — so I had no idea what to prepare!” –T.A.
“Her family has very specific religious customs around Easter (mine does not), so it was a bit of a culture shock the first time we celebrated Easter with them.” –J.C.
“We celebrated our first Easter with his family (our parents live in different states). They celebrate with dinner, whereas my family always has Easter brunch. I was shocked by how much I missed that brunch!” — S.S.
“I found out that he hates Peeps! Who hates Peeps?” — L.R.
“My MIL gave me underwear in my Easter basket. I would have preferred a chocolate-peanut butter egg!” — E.M.
“It was the first time I had to clean up Easter grass from carpet — not fun.” –-J.C.
“I was astonished that both sets of parents really cared about spending Easter with us. So we split the holiday–and it was crazy trying to fit it all in!” –H.S.
“We actually argued about whether to make ham or lamb for Easter dinner. We finally settled the score by making both!” — R.S.
