Married Life

When we talk about married life, we talk about the good and the bad.  In this lesson, I will teach you the English you need to know to communicate how you feel about your married life.  If you are not married, then at least you can learn this lesson to speak about your opinions on your friends married life.

We will not go into detail about conversation between married couple.  Mostly, couples talk about the same thing in a routine.  But when you talk to friends, it's very different.

Girl talking to friends

"How is married life?"
"How is your husband doing?"
"What do you guys do for fun?"

Some responses I've heard

"I love my married life.  My husband and I get a long so well."
"He is so helpful.  He does the dishes for me and helps me around the house a lot."
"It was fun in the beginning, but now we are in a regular routine."

"Everything is great, but he's a little lazy.  One time he was watching TV and he called me when I was in the kitchen and asked me to get the remote control for him that was 6 feet away."

"All he does is watch TV.  I don't understand how a person can watch so much television."

"Since we're both working, we don't have much time for each other.  But we get to spend the weekend together and that is always good."

"Since I'm working also, we go out to eat a lot because I don't have time to cook."

"My husband is working at a consulting firm.  He is always at work.  I get bored a lot so I'm trying to find some hobbies."
"My husband works at Microsoft.  He gets home late and when he comes home, he's too tired to do anything.  I'm thinking about starting a career because I have so much extra time."
"My husband is in school right now.  He's finishing his PHD."
