My husband (number two) is my knight in shining armour! He is a wonderful, wonderful man and I wouldn't change him. Sure, he has his faults, so do I. He tolerates mine as I do his. Life would be boring if we were too much alike! In short, yes, I am happily married. Now there's this woman in town that clearly isn't. We had a guy come to see our shop on his way out of state and he told us how he came to the area to surprise the 'woman of his dreams' whom he met online. The surprise was a huge one as it was her husband that answered the door! Talk about an oops! He didn't know she was married and her hubby didn't know what she was doing behind his back! This goes to show you that if you cheat, even if only emotionally, you will get caught sooner or later.
My husband and I are totally opposites and in my opinion, its keeps the marriage alive. I would never want to be married so someone just like me. Ive been married only 5 years and you learn so much. He is also the love of my life.
on the marriage, If I will be married, I don't want it to be boring, I want my man to have free time and for him to achieve his full potential, support him all the way! I see this things with my friends and my sister. Maybe it is better said than done, but still it is an ideal.
I thought I was happily married for almost 25 years. I knew we had our differences, but with perseverance and determination on both our parts we could work through anything.
He decided to make a simplified confession earlier this year, I was not satisfied with this and did some digging. Understand there had been questions over the years that had went unanswered or falsified.
After I found out from what I had assumed to be a friend, he did a total confession which took 3 days to complete. Now most of the memories that I had thought were happy are tainted by his confessions.
I think now, I would change the 'exchanging of the vows' part, and just forgo the relationship altogether. I haven't decided to leave as of yet, and I am not even sure my mind is still in the marriage.
Absolutely, the things you find out after a few years?... quite surprising,all a learning curve, but oh so much fun! My husband & I drive each other crazy, on purpose, just to have some fun, we are each others very best friends, we are each others priority, and have been happily married for almost 8 years, and together a little over 10.....nothing amazing is ever easy!
I wouldn't think of changing anything. I would like to change myself if there is a problem. All changes need to to made first from within. Yes I agree with greek one for once.......... I am happily married
If I could change anything, it would be those factors that have led him to the only unsavory element in our marriage. If I could change it, I'm sure he wouldn't mind, they're things that make him miserable...he tries not to let me see so that it won't bother me, but he knows I know they're there. As far as him as a person goes...nope, I wouldn't change a thing either! Heck, I'd love it if he made about five times his current wage just so he could work only when he wanted to and we could spend more time together, but other than that .
....love all my marriages....just the wedding(s) part....then the divorce parties start...they are lots of fun!!!!!!...married my divorce lawyer once...Bob...he was my dream guy, until he said "i do"....
I think all mirrage have problems even if the person is perfect. One thing i would say is to those people who have arrange mirrage dont do it as you dont know what your getting. Its always nice at the begging but then they show who they really are.
Oh, NO, BIll!!! Being able to snuggle with the one you love every night as you fall asleep, and staying in bed on Sunday mornings when you can sleep late? Ah! There is nothing like it! You must try it sometime. I am happily married to the most amazing man!
I am I just feel like a robot. I keep thinking is this what marriage is about. It really makes me so sad. I hate being sad everyday where is the happiness. Only thing that keeps me going is my kids. All I can do is pray maybe things will change but I doubt it. Everything I do is just programmed. Like I am about to go cook dinner do what I have to do w/the kids wait for him to get home serve dinner make sure kids are bathed read to watch a bit of T.V. and then bed.. REPEAT again tomorrow.. (& YES I have shared my feeling to my husband but nothing happens... so my Robot life cont.)
Marriage is hard, but worth it. I love my husband very much and he loves me. With the economy the way it is, money is an issue, but we are pretty frugal people anyway so we make it work.
He works long hours, and is tired most of the time these days. But he is such a good sport about it all.
That's why I make an extra effort to make it easier on him, by doing everything around the house, to alow him time to rest. I respect his need for down time since his hours are so long, sometimes 16 hour days.
So am I happily married YES! Of course there are things that I wish I could make better. But that is just human nature to improve upon any situation we are in.
I adore my bf and appreciate all that is him, but if I could change one thing...
It would be...
The thing he does when he suddenly doesn't get something very simple that I'm saying...when he normally get the most complex things... maybe that's the time for me to shut up and give him some peace and quiet. Hummmm I think I may have solved my one thing.
Great question Dawn, I'll watch to see what develops and what I can learn.
I'm not allowed to be married by law, but, I have had a partner for over 20 years. If I could change anything, I would certainly like to trade up for someone a little more studly and younger. I could also use a little less 3rd degree crap on everything I do.
With that said, our relationship has various levels of happy. I do enjoy his company on occasion, and he tries not to be a total bitch all the time. But, I also have a level or respect for him, and I do care about him, but, it's no longer a sexual thing.
But, if I thought I had a chance with Ryan Seacrest, I would trade up and marry him in a second. He's hot, and rich. Who could ask for more!
Yes, I am unhappily married. It's been this way for a while. Married since I was 15 so of course I was young & naive. Now I'm 21 and my husband hates me. He says I'm a burden on his life and he hates taking care of me, blah, blah, blah...Hates the way I look. "Why can't I just be skinny like other wives?" The list goes on and on. All my flaws -- he can't love me unconditionally. And I feel that I can't do the same for him either. I'm just so dicouraged that this marriage is ever gonna work. I want out, but it's easier said than done. He abuses me both physically and emotionally. This marriage is a mess. He just hasn't proposed divorce because he wants to save face. He doesn't wanna be known as the guy whose marriage failed.
I know that getting married young was probably the first sign that marriage was maybe a bad idea, but a marriage isn't going to work when only one person is putting forth an effort to make it work. I was 22 when I got...
Ok, so I'm not the type to put my business on the internet, but I have a problem and I just need feed back. I don't care just lay it on me. One,since we've been married, my husband has only wore his ring for...

Having a husband or boyfriend who cheated is a big hit to your self esteem. You begin to doubt your marriage and your ability to make your husband happy or to be enough. And there are tons of old stereotypes which...
Yep...it's true. I give great advice, encourage others, offer support, stay devoted, remain committed, work like hell (darn, I cussed) to sustain my committment, and say positive things. I write articles about...
