Tamra Barney moved in with her fiancé Eddie Judge before they tied the knot in June, but the Real Housewives of Orange County star swears their pre-nuptial domestic life didn't dampen any of the magic of marriage.
"I thought because we had lived together that it wasn't going to be any different but it is," she tells People. "It is just so much more meaningful. It is amazing."
Barney, who has struggled with suicide attempts before meeting Eddie, is so enamored of her new hubby, she's thrilled to spend nearly every waking moment with him. "We work together so we are together every single day," Barney says (the two opened C.U.T. Fitness studio in Rancho Santa Margarita earlier this year). "We work together, we live together. We are always together and we haven't gotten sick of each other!"
But doting on her husband and devoting time to her new business ventures hasn't compromised her relationship with her three kids, either. "My schedule is a little hectic," she admits. "I try and schedule things that I have to do work-wise on the days [ex-husband Simon Barney] has the children."
