  • I really don't know. I think every has ups and downs. Just because you are bestfriends and feel comfortable talking together doesn't make a good marriage. I think it takes a lot more than that. Similar views, morals, and values. Comprimise, love, trust and honesty.

  • I agree, you can talk with you man about anything and everything. I know I have been married for almost 13 years and I am 35 and when my man is away I am miserable and I love spending time with him. Other friends of mine say stuff like don't ur husband drive you nuts or can't wait till he is gone for work, I just look at them and say ur nuts...LOL

  • I guess what I think defines a good marriage is you can actually have a conversation with your spouse without having to argue..! Being able to handle finances together with no problem....The spouse should at least help around the house as much as you a little bit sensitive with your feelings....Help out as much as they can with the kids.....(we need a break too!) Be affectionate and at least has a sense of humor now and then....we cant always be all I can think of??? but yea, maybe that covers it for me.

  • To me it's unwavering loyalty, trust and respect as the foundation. Everything else is built on top of that.

  • ok good marriage to me is even when everything blows up in your face and you are broke and trying to figure out how to pay the bills you are still happy... when two ppl make the commitment to work through all workable situtions i mean i understand cheating abuse are not workable! you dont cheat on each other you dont abuse each other and you dont take each other for granted... its kinda funny my husband and i have an unspoken agreement when my friends are here he waits on me hand and foot and when his friends are here i do the same lol when my friends are here he waits on them hand and foot and when his friends are here i do the same if both friends and families r here we both do it and when we are the one being waited on dont act like a big shot about it it seems to make things run pretty smoothly for us lol everyone has there own thing that makes their marriage a good one
