Short and sweet today. I’ve been interviewed over at The Marriage Project reflecting on life as a newlywed, and guest posted on Financial Samurai about my entire RTW experience – from how we decided to go, what it was really like on a daily basis, and wrapping up my thoughts on the journey now that we’re home.
This week’s links:

How novel – a dude who pushed his fiancee to keep her surname. Progress indeed. And how’s this for a zinger halfway through the story: “Liz also enjoys pole dancing. The couple have a pole in their living room so sometimes she will do a routine while Joseph watches as he cooks a meal.”
Lastly, my pick from A Practical Wedding this week is the spectacular Leaving and looking in the same direction. I can so relate to the dawning realisation that no matter how long and how intensely you’ve known your partner, you can never really *know* another human being; the contemplating how things might be easier if you weren’t together – because even when you’ve knowingly chosen a life together and committed to the hard parts, sometimes you still wonder ‘what if’.
