Do you know of any truly happy relationships?
I mean relationships that aren't family related like:(mother/daughter, father/son etc...) but rather boyfriend/girlfriend or boyfriend/boyfriend or girlfriend /girlfriend. Are there any monogamous, happy, loving, joyfilled relationships?
Come to think of it, no. I think every relationship is going to have its problems, it just depends on if the both of them think the relationship is worth working things out. This generation is relationship lazy compared to our grandparents and their parents. Divorce used to be taboo, not anymore.
I truly believe I am in one. My husband and I have been together 7 years and we are happy. In 7 years we have not separated, raised our voices at each other, our sex life is great, we get along great, we do everything together, and overall we have had maybe a disagreement a year. I'm happy. I know he is happy. With that said, EVERYONE has ups and down, off days, or off weeks.
It depends on how you define happy. I believe I have a happy relationship with my wife. We have ups and downs, but the good times always ouutweigh the bad.
Yes! Mine. I honestly can say we don't fight, we don't have any issues. We have fun, laugh and love and respect each other so much. Three years and it's still just as exciting as the first date.... And we have a baby in the house now too. We were friends for a few years before we became a couple. I was married, my ex had affairs and I made sure I got it right this time....live and learn
I have known of a few married couples that have joyfull relationships. Two in Florida, three in Louisiana, and three in Texas (my husband and I included). But I don't spend much time with dating couples, and the ones that I do spend time with mostly aren't happy. There might be one couple in Texas I know, but that's all I can think of.
I think it's hard for people to speculate the health of another's relationship. I only say this because so many times you hear; "I always thought they were happy". I don't think many people bring their drama into public and unless you are intimately involved with a couple it may be hard to tell. There are a few couples in my entire lifetime that I have been very close with and I can see the passion and love decades into their relationship. I have always been envious of that kind of relationship and wonder how it happens. Are these cases where people have found their soulmates or are they people who just compliment each other's personalities or do they both simply put a lot of effort into the relationship?
I lived in a truly happy relationship with and marriage to my George for 29 years until his death 4-1/2 years ago. I'd experienced the other kind, so I knew the difference.
I know of friends and others who seem to be in happy relationships. Like all relationships their happiness is realistic and not based on expectation that it is the other persons job to make them happy. Today too many people seem to think that it is the relationship that will create happiness, rather than the fact that to be happy in a relationship we have to be first happy within ourselves.
Yes, after one failed marriage I did move on to find a truly wonderful relationship. It happened after I learned to love and value myself as an individual first. That allowed me to find someone who values me for who I am - not for what I can do for them and that of course goes both ways. I love him for who he is and we are truly best friends first.
That is the ultimate to love yourself and your partner equally and allow each other to be who you fully are with no judgement!!!Perfect!!!
I can't agree more. Until one loves & values him/herself, it's almost impossible for anyone else to do so, except in a sympathetic way - not as equals.
