  • YES! me & and over a dozen other couples. All my friends & family are happily married (except for BIL, he is divorcing his second wife) And my one friend that is single, is now engaged...so he is no longer single anymore.

    OH, and my 3 brothers...lol! They are all currently single. But, most other family members & friends are all happily married.

  • I know a handful. But I also think everyones definition of happily married is different.
    I know many who have really good marriages but do fight like the dickens on occasion...but they are happy overall. Just human.

  • We just had a dinner party saturday night. Same 7 couples that we have had over every year for the last 18 yrs. We are ALL happily married. Yes, we have had rough spots but nothing bad. My in laws, my hubby's aunt/uncle, my parents are both remarried and have each been remarried for over 20 yrs... both are happy. My 2 sisters and my 1 brother = happy.

    I am very happily married.

    So I would say the majority of people I know and are close with are happy. We are not happy 100% of the time (but a big chunk of time) and when we are not happy we work through it.

  • I guess you'd have to define "happy". All marriages have highs and lows, we are in a low right now, but I still consider my marriage happy because we are in it together, we still love eachother, we want the same things, we love our family life. I think all in my circle, 5 couples, would say the same. Is everything perfect? No. Are we skipping down the lane holding hands? No. Are we going at it every night because we can't keep our hands off eachother? No. But we are steering this ship together and we are eachother's best friends. Is that happy?

  • My DH and I have together 14 friends who are married to one another. So the 8 couple together including us we are all happily married. Yes every single one of us have our issues but in the end we are all happy and wouldn't change anything. In fact my DH and I are the couple who have been together the least about of years, the rest of them range from 7 years to 25 years together. I think it is great.

  • I know many content couples. Sometimes they are happy other times not. No one is ever happy all the time. My husband and I are also a content and loving couple. Right now we are not too happy with each other over a situation but we love each other enough we are working through it and will move forward in our relationship. We have been married nearly 20 years so we have had many ups and downs. I think those who think they can be happy all the time and expect their spouse to make them happy divorce more often than those of us with more realistic expectations of marriage.

    I am glad I know many who actually work at their marriages not fun when a family member or friend divorces. I like people of strong character so that might be why I don't know as many who are in dysfuntional marriages.
