The hardest years of marriage

What years are the hardest in marriage? I have heard people say the first year is the hardest. Then there is always the "seven year itch". Yesterday was my 11 year anniversary and my girlfriend said "just watch out for year 13!" Her marriage ended on year 13. She also said that she knows a lot of people that it ended at 13. What have you guys heard? What are your experiences?

 I have heard all these-we had a small rough patch in year 2.  But we just celebrated 17yrs married and together 19yrs this past Jan.

I have heard year 7 and 13 are hard. I have been married 9 years and we have had our share of problems that started around year 5. I'm planning on still being around to test the 13 year theory.

We're going on year 12 and none were hard.  I don't anticipate that changing, we are still very much in love and happy.

We've never had any REALLY hard times. We have fights and disagree about things but the only major thing that's ever happened was last year and we've been together almost 13yrs

The years when you have a 2 year old in the house. Many couples file for divorce when they are raising a 2 year old. Like 40%, something like that.
