Nobody said that going from engaged to married would be an easy transition. And no one can tell you that more than Million Dollar Listing New York newlyweds Ryan Serhant and Emilia Bechrakis. Several months after marrying in Greece, the duo are still working out the kinks of cohabitation. Sure, they had already been living together before they said "I do," but now they are trying to figure out how to fit all their stuff (new and old) inside their Manhattan apartment.
"I didn't want gifts. So everybody said you have to get a wedding registry. So one day I went with my girlfriend... so we just kept using that little gun thing and ordering stuff. And then when they started to arrive, I was like 'Why do I need a crystal candelabra? What am I doing with this?' Then I started to remove stuff. So we keep getting boxes now."
And all those new items means that Ryan has had to sacrifice his closet space to accommodate it. And he's not too thrilled about it. "And now that we're married I can't have as many shoes anymore. All of a sudden all of my coats are on a rack in my room. And she's like 'Which coats would you like to keep?' And I'm like 'What what do you mean? Why do I have to make a decision between my children?'" he said. "Everything is us. We are a unit. She doesn't have any things. We never had that whole 'let's move in together' [talk] like 'I'll take my couch, you take your chair.'"
Not that it's been much of a sacrifice for Mrs. Serhant. You see many of Emilia's pre-Ryan possessions are still at the apartment that she lived in before she married the Big Apple agent. "If you go there, it's like a time capsule," she said. "Every thing's exactly the same."
