  • No, and to expect that "giddy, happy" feeling to last your whole life is unrealistic. Every relationship has ups and downs and there will be times that the giddiness is simply not there. True love is working past that and sticking it out, even without the giddiness, knowing that what you have is more important and substantial than butterflies in your stomach.

  • My best friend has been married for 43 years. There are times that her and her DH act like teenagers. But, she tells me that in any relationship, you will have your ups and downs. The trick it to realize that you can get through the downs to get to the ups. Will you always have the giddiness? No, but you still get them sometimes.

  • Happy and Giddy (always)? No... that is unreasonable. To be happy and giddy is to say that there would never be any growth and with that there soon would be boredom and unsettling. I think there is a point in relationships where you become very comfortable (which is not safe either) and you have to "spice it up" with some happy/giddy moments. The older you get the more you realize what is important in relationships and what can fall by the waist-side.

  • My DH and I are almost always happy and giddy with each other, we've been together for 8 years. We have had arguments however, and days that just weren't so great. Every relationship has its ups and downs, and to expect that it won't is to set yourself up for disappointment.

  • "Feelings" come and go in any marriage. You can't base a relationship on feelings. What cements a marriage for life is commitment! Your happiness is up to you. Spending time together, putting your mate first and great communication lay the groundwork for a marriage that will stand the test of time. Realizing that when you made a vow to love, honor & cherish 'til death do us part and there are no other options, then you can move forward with deciding how you want to be. Our happiness shouldn't be based on others, but in doing the right thing.
