Oh how wrong people can be. The other day I was talking about feeling frumpy lately when a girl interrupted me and exclaimed, “You shouldn't care, you're married!!”
Even though we are married and comfortable and I know he will love me no matter what, it's important to ME to look good. And looking good just doesn't mean the outside, but the inside too. I like to get dressed up for date nights and special occasions but sometimes I like to surprise him. Maybe one day he comes home from work and dinner is made and I have on a new dress. I would only hope he would do the same for me (which he does.)
So please, don't tell me it no longer matters just because I'm married. It matters to me. And it should matter to you.
