    Can you maintain happiness in a marriage at all times?

    Can the ups and downs be eliminated?

    Happiness and Sorrow comes and goes with attachment,they are fleeting moments.What you can achieve however is Peace at all times which lasts forever.

    I love my wife to death but I dont think there is anyone who can say they are happy with their spouse all the time. There will be ups and downs. Good times and Bad, you just have to push through those down times and the highs will come back. It is for better or worse after all.

    There will definitely be ups and downs, but the love that exists can transcend them if you both continually work on the relationship.  Eventually, the ups will last longer and you will be able to talk through the downs pretty quickly and move on.

    You can have as much happiness in your marriage as you choose-even with the ups and downs.It is not that you have ups and downs smile it is how you react to them.Once you learn and except that Love and happiness are a combination of feelings and emotions and that each individual views things differently-If you don't expect to much--you won't be disappointed.

    Ups and downs in any situation, including marriage, cannot be eliminated because we live in a fallen world, however, there is a relationship that can always give joy and will help with all other relationships...you might like to see John 10:10.

    I think what's important is maintaining the skilled potential to re-establish and strengthen marital-happiness through the inevitable emotional low points.

    No. There will always be something your partner does that you don't like and vice-versa. The ups and downs in a relationship are going to be there all the time, no matter how much you try to avoid them. It's getting past the ups and downs each day that make a happy marriage.
