We all watched as Katie Maloney-Schwartz and Tom Schwartz said "I do" last season on Vanderpump Rules. It was an emotional and beautiful event, to say the least. And now the couple is offering some insight into how marriage is going these days.
“We’re not happily ever after,” Tom told reporters at the NBCUniversal Press Junket in Hollywood on Monday, via Us Weekly. “We still have a lot of work to do.”
The couple married in August 2016 in front of friends and family. Prior to getting married, fans saw over the course of their relationship that it wasn't always smooth sailing to get to their wedding day. Still, Katie noted, “We would be lying to ourselves if we said everything is great, but it is significantly a lot better.”
Even as they work through the ups and downs of being newlyweds, they are already thinking about the next step of starting a family. “It’s all part of the big picture,” Katie said. “I think right now, we’re on the brinks of some exciting stuff.” She added, “The future has become less hypothetical and more real. It’s been fun and [exciting] and a lot less scary [than] I thought it would be.”
And being married has definitely changed the way Tom views planning the future. “We’ve always been very ambitious, at least vaguely ambitious, that’s what I like to say,” he said. “I’m vaguely ambitious, but now that I’m married, we’re starting to think about having a family and starting to think about kids. We’re focused on the future now and excited about it. Back in the day, I think I was scared of the future.”
