So what does "married" look like?

While standing by my desk yesterday, waiting for me to look something up, a co-worker asked about the photos I have up. "That's my dad," I said, pointing, "and that's my husband."

"Oh, you're married?" he asked.

"Yeah, eight years this summer," I said.

"Huh. I didn't realize you were married. You don't carry yourself like a married lady, I guess," he replied.

So now I'm wondering what "married" looks like, and how I might carry myself differently.
