First comes love. Then comes marriage, and well, we'll save that last part for a little later. Congrats, you're a newlywed! While nothing drastic has changed in your relationship since you've said, "I do," we bet there are some big and small life changes you're currently going through (or avoiding in the case of sign #1 below). Check out our list of seven signs you're a newlywed!

1. You still haven't changed your last name.
Not legally, at least. Yes, you'll get around to it eventually. Right now though, you literally can't even begin to think about processing all of that paperwork.

2. But you did make it official on Facebook.
Look who's married, world! Seriously, if changing your last name was as easy in real life as it is on Facebook, you'd have been all over it months ago.

3. You constantly find yourself dodging the kid question.
Just because the Duggars have babies ASAP doesn't mean you're ready to start a family. And if you are, how annoying is it when people tell you that you really should wait and just enjoy being married for a while?

4. Your new favorite phrase is "my husband".
At this point, you've successfully mastered the art of sneaking it into any and every conversation, yet sometimes you still slip up and call him your fiancé. Oops! Man it feels good to be a better half.

5. Sending your first work email as a Mrs. totally made you giddy.
You're officially married, and there's nothing quite like seeing your new full name in writing. It's almost surreal?

6. You're suddenly all about family holiday cards.
Christmas can't come soon enough this year! When else do you get the chance to shamelessly show off your wedding photos once again? You don't want to brag, but...Okay, screw it, you kind of do. #proudwifey

7. You never thought you'd say this, but you actually miss wedding planning.
It sounds insane, you know, particularly since you used to complain 24/7 about how stressed out and overwhelmed you were. Oh well, guess there's always the one-year anniversary to start obsessing over.
