  • My hub and I have been together for 10 years this September.  Our biggest conflict has been our addictions.  We're both alcoholics and have both given into our demons while together.  We fought all the time, physically and verbally but underlying it all there was still love.  Eventually, we got it together.  Now, we don't argue, have learned to respect each other and put the other person first.  Lovely.  ;)

  • we have been together for 7 yrs and it is always about money. He gradually is getting better but it has been an uphill battle..He hates to pay bills and is very frivolous ... he thinks if there is money in the bank then there is money he can spend. I could really go on and on about this...all I can do though is remind myself how much he has improved since we first met.

  • we've been married 28yrs in April and have worked through all of our conflicts. Sometimes it was hard but each one we faced just made our relationship and marriage stronger so hang in there, it's so worth it!
