    I am ecstatic. DH and I have had our fights and difficult periods- but we have used those times as opportunities to become stronger as a couple. We enjoy each other and are affectionate with each other. I am very very grateful to be in a happy marriage.

    Brutal honesty here!

    Our relationship was a bit of a whirlwind. We moved in together after just 4 months, got engaged after 2 years and bought our first house together, baby after 3 years and married 5 months after that.

    I sometimes have regreats that we did things very fast and havent really had time to enjoy each phase seperately if that makes sense.

    So i would say that yes i am happy but exhausted!!

    We’re happily married, granted it’s only been a couple months! We’ve had to work hard to get here, with immigration standing in our way of being together. It feels so nice to finally be together without counting down the days until one of us has to fly away.

    That said, it’s been a little rough these two months. I had to move to his country a month ago, and it’s not a cake walk. There are a lot of days I get incredibly frustrated – I can’t find the products I want at the shop, I can’t understand this person’s accent, I don’t have any friends of my own here, I have to wait on paperwork for this and that… it goes on and on. So there have been plenty of days I have been grouchy, and we don’t act like blissful newlyweds. But luckily he understands the vast majority of my annoyances are not him, and he doesn’t get offended. 

    I’m confident we have what it takes to last. We’re so compatible, we complement each other so well, and we really do have a blast together. Overall even in the frustrations we’ve shared, we’re very happy.

    Funny, I’m happier as time goes by.  Dh is a good husband–very considerate & easy to live with.  He certainly makes my life easier in a lot of ways.

    We’re very happy and though this might sound strange, one of the things that makes us happiest is that marriage hasn’t changed our relationship other than to make it even deeper.

    We were content to live together for many years since neither of us wanted to re-marry. When the time was right we wasted no time in tying the knot. And while we are the same people, in the same house, with the same lives, marriage is that little extra layer of icing on the cake!

    We’ve had a very hard year with DH being diagnosed with something life threatening shortly before our wedding. He’s fought it and has just been given the all-clear. But for sure, we learned what “in sickness and in health” really means and having got through the bad times and emerged stronger together means that I have no problem saying “Yes. We are very happily married”.

    We are very happy together, but we always had a happy relationship together so it’s not surprising.  We lived together the entire time we dated and didn’t have much adjusting to do once we were married (i.e. already merged finances, owned a home together, etc).

    We are very happy but like every couple have our moments. We have been through a lot together, including some family ilness on both sides and after finding out we were pregnant have not had the easiest pregnancy .. a lot of appointments and worry. We get through things together though, and it all makes us closer in the end. I couldn’t imagine going through life without my husband at this point. 

    I don’t think anyone can ever say they’re hapy 100% of the time though, because we sure do have our moments and as much as I always love him… I don’t always like him.. if that makes sense!

    Anonymous1063:  we are very happy. We work as a team and work hard to understand each other. We have a lot of fun and work hard to please one another. It’s been an amazing newlywed year so far. We are expecting our first child right around our 1 year anniversary and couldn’t be more excited, anxious, and joyous.

    We are more happy than we ever were prior to being married. Had a rough long distance relationship, long distance engagement. Now that we’re together and can spend a lot more time together and go on dates, love is growing every day. We of course fight and have crazy disagreements, but I think that’s life.

    the engagement and wedding really put our relationship through the ringer.  It was not an enjoyable experience.  We knew we wanted to be together, but i dont deal well with stress and pressure and lets just say i went to a dark place. 

    8 months out from the wedding we are extremely happy. Getting the wedding out of the way and finally getting back to being “us” has been wonderful. I only went through the drama of a wedding because i knew our marriage would be worth it. And it is!

    I voted that I am “very happy”. I’m honestly surprised by how strong I feel our marriage/relationship is.  Neither of us is perfect, so I’m not dilusional thinking we are and our relationship doesn’t have flaws… But we work together really well and we are both really happy with where we are right now.  He is honestly my best friend and I love spending time with him. I think we have a pretty darn good relationship.
