Is everyone happily married?

If, like me, you aren't, do you answer the slurpy sweet questions like "how do you show SO you love him/care about him/appreciate him" or do you just move on?

  • Honestly- it just kind of depends on what's going on in my life. Hubby and I do not have the perfect marriage, but we have only been married 4 years. So, I do try to answer those questions and highlight the good things that my husband does, and how I show him that I appreciate him. I think it makes a marriage stronger, even when your spouse does not know you are saying nice things about him. Often times, if you just change your outlook on the situation, it really will get better.

  • I am happily takes work though! I answer questions according to my mood. Honestly husband and I aren't really into the sweet and syrupy thing. We are into the stand by you, work together and never have to doubt each other thing.

  • Depends on your definition of "happy". I don't think we really qualify as the same level of gooey sappy type of "happily married". But we're committed and more or less stable. Maybe I'll be able to be more gooey sappy when we've got less stress.

    And it depends on the question.

  • We have a good marriage, with lots of issues. We are in it for the long haul, but we have our ups and downs, we are not skipping down the lane holding hands and gazing into eachother's eyes under the moonlight, lol. But we are best friends and partners and we fight alot, sigh. We have good stretches and bad stretches, but we are on the same page and we work through it. We both love our family life and its the most important thing to both of us. No, I don't answer those types of questions because my answers are very unromantic and practical. We've been married 7 years and together 12, btw.
