What is it like? I feel like it would either be
1. Kodak family with a white fence everything so perfect you kinda wanna barf
2. Constant non stop fights both people unhappy

Now i know neither would apply to everyone because every situation is different


Im just curious because i never met s happily married couple. Now im not that dense that i assume all are
unhappy thats why i am asking

ANOTHER QUESTION

So i want to thank all of you

It's a happy medium. I'm mean we aren't Pleasantville residents or anything. But we aren't at each others throats either. We have our issues here and there. But overall we work through our problems together. We're a stronger team together than not. We adore each other and would do anything for the greater good of the other and rest of the family.

What is my marriage like?

It's mostly very happy. White picket fence happy? Yes, a lot of the time.

Do we fight? Absolutely. But we fight fair, and not often, because we only fight about big things and never sweat the small stuff.

I really don't understand what you're asking, though. No relationship is perfect. It depends on the people in it...and it takes a lot of work.

I think people rush into things too quickly and then don't like what they find out about their spouse, or they nit-pick and argue about stuff that just doesn't really matter.

Our marriage is happy.  I chose a man who I would still want to live with after he's gotten on my last nerve, lol.

It's not really either, though if I had to pick between the two I would easily pick the picket fence.  It hasn't always been like that, but after being with someone for 10 years you learn how to communicate and diffuse situations before they turn into a big argument.

Like others, I am confused why you don't see married people as just normal people.  Too much Leave it to Beaver and Mob Wives?

We disagree sometimes, but we respect each other too much to scream yell and curse at each other. We are very happy, but sometimes we drive each other crazy. We just choose to look past the flaws. We are very happy together.

we're very happy but we do have arguments sometimes.  marriage is work and throw kids into the mix you have to now make time for each other when before, it was just the two of you.

you have to take time to keep the romance alive, to keep the connection alive, to be intimate with each other even when you're dead tired.  if you constantly put your relationship on the back-burner, it'll remain there because it's 'easier' to just leave it there and succumb to the exhaustion/daily grind of life.  that's when you realize, 10yrs down the road, that you don't know your partner anymore!

Kodak family, sans white picket fence. We never fight, I love him more every single day, he adores dd-who is not his bio child, he truly appreciates what I do for our family, he busts ass to make sure we live comfortably and enjoy ourselves. He is my best friend, and the thought of life without him makes me ill. Seriously, I start crying!

We still hold hands, kiss all of the time, leave each other hidden notes, send sappy emails. Our family says.we make them want to vomit. Lol

our ONLY problem is my ex husband. Dh desperately.wants the ex to either commit to being in dds life, or move the hell over so dh can adopt her. *shrug cant have it all, i suppose.

We are happy not perfect but happy. Sure we have arguments who doesn't but we work them out. We have no secretes and tons of trust. We also are always working on our relationship.

We're very happy. Of course we have disagreements, but we never yell at each other and solve our problems amicably.
