I just finished a book that had this premise, and after years of supporting her husband financially and otherwise, the protagonist was happy for him but she apparently didn't realize just how changed their lives would ACTUALLY be. New over-the-top personalities in their lives, gossip rags, articles about their love life.
With the way celebrities and their spouses are treated nowadays, I just honestly don't think i'd be able to handle it.
Last night I ended up telling Fredo that I hate his friend, Drew. I feel like I've been trying to like Drew since Fredo and I started dating, but ever since our first interaction outside of Five Star Pizza when he made fun of me for nothing, I just have not fucking liked him. Luckily Fredo understands because he was/is the same way with my former roommate/best friend Kelly. It felt really good to just tell him, "I really cannot stand your friend, I'm sorry." and him answer, "It's okay, I get it." Phew.
also, I asked him if he wants to get married to me one day, because this guy at work has been dating his girlfriend for 3 years and he said she's not the one for him, which is baffling to me. Anyway, I asked Fredo and he smiled really softly and half-whispered "yes." :)
