After you get married it is easy to become completely involved with your new spouse and want to spend every waking moment with him. Newlywed bliss takes over and all you want to do is be with your spouse. However, you should not neglect your close friends that you had before you got married.
If you find yourself missing girl’s night or doing activities with your girlfriends then make the extra effort to attend those events with your girlfriends. If you used to meet up with your girlfriends once a week to have a girl’s night then just because you are now married does not mean that you can no longer do those things.
Also, continue to call your friends and keep in touch with them. Do not neglect your friends just because you are married. If you have really close friends that you spent a lot of time with before you got married then your friends may be going through an adjustment period now that you are married. Sometimes it takes time for your friends to adjust to the fact that you are now married and cannot hang out with them every day. Make extra effort to keep in touch with your friends and spend time with them so they do not feel isolated or neglected just because you are married and may not spend as much time with them.
Lastly, just because you are married does not mean that your husband has to be with you every time you are with your friends. It is okay for the two of you to spend time with your friends separately. In fact it is healthy to still maintain pre-marriage friendships and spend time with those friends.
So the next time a girlfriend calls or contacts you to do a girl’s night or a girl’s weekend, go ahead and do it! You will be glad that you took the time to reconnect with friends and your friends will appreciate your effort to spend time with them.
