Time Magazine published an interesting article this week titled, "Postnuptial Depression: What Happens the Day After." It explores what most folks refer to as the "wedding day blues" or the range feelings that newlyweds sometimes experience immediately following their ceremonies.
Experts and brides agree that these feelings can be as simple as boredom once all the high-intensity planning is done or to more deeper issues like transitioning into a new life with someone new and the mundane routines and rituals that follow.
They write, "...once the Big Day has come and gone, couples are suddenly forced to step out of their much-cherished, and often long-lived, "bride" or "groom" spotlight and just get on with real life."
What do you think? Is postnuptial depression real? Or do you have any ideas for preparing or coping? Check out the full article and share your thoughts with other brides.
