To this date, Mr. Frost and I have been married for seven months. And I'm proud to say that we're not done with our honeymoon yet.

I'm not referring to the kind of honeymoon wherein you spend time together in a particular place, usually near the beach or in a foreign land, preferably without the in-laws , right after the wedding.

I'm referring to what they call the "honeymoon stage," the period newlyweds go through from the day of their wedding until several, usually three to five, months into the marriage.

Also, this day marks our second anniversary as a couple.

We've been together for 24 months now. And we never stopped being friends. And by that, I mean the "barkada" type of friendship.

As most of you know, Mr. Frost and I work in the same company. We are in two different departments, but our teams usually work together. Anyway, one time, Keith and I were discussing some stuff about a project. An officemate heard us and asked why we call each other by our names.

"Don't you have a term of endearment for each other? You're already married, for God's sake! And everybody knows that. You don't have to be discreet about it," she added with laughter.

The explanation is simple.

We keep our professional and personal lives separate. While a lot of people know that we are married, there are still some who can't believe it because we "don't act married."

And that's not just in the office. I can say that's our usual "atmosphere."

We call each other by our first names. We tease and make fun of each other the way we do to others. We bash each other the way we bash Nocturnal Sun, Simon Woo, SkyClad, and the rest of the Wednesday Group (ayan ha, may cameo na naman kayo dito, magclick kayo sa Google Ads ). In short, we act as barkadas because we are barkadas first, husband and wife second.

But that doesn't mean we love each other less. Quite the opposite, I may say.

And I believe that's one of the reasons why our duo continues to grow stronger.

Some people believe the super "gasgas" line "Friends can be lovers, but lovers can't be friends."

That's the case for most couples. Thank God we're exempted.

But seriously, many couples start as friends. As soon as they exchange "I love you's," the reason why they fell in love with each other fade away with their friendship. They stop having fun and focus more on being a couple. If they find new reasons to fall in love with each other all over again, good for them. Still, they stop having fun. And that sucks.

I have to go now. I'm preparing one of Mr. Frost's favorite dinner. And we're gonna kick each other's ass in Unreal Tournament.
