Everything went really smooth at the registration this morning. The only unfortunately thing is that the Dutch government thinks we’re single because we needed an apostiled marriage certificate to register as ‘married’. We’ll have to determine whether the tax benefits outweigh the hassle & cost of ordering & getting a new marriage certificate from California apostiled.
Then, we headed to the bank to create our very first joint account. Thrilling! We created a ‘young professionals package’ as they call it. We signed, sealed and they will deliver our debit cards and funky ‘internet access’ pin machine within a few days. I’ll have to add a photo when that arrives…very interesting system. Again, the Dutch are over-cautious people who want to make sure that you really are who you say you are, you’ve checked the boxes and signed your name 5 times!
going to make pasta now. love you all 🙂
