Lately I feel like I see so many threads on people’s relationships have gone bad after the wedding. I know people do this for emotional support and I totally understand that, but as an engaged bee, I would love to hear how happy you are after your wedding!! It would really put me at ease! So go ahead and gloat away!!!

I don’t like to write big long gushing things on weddingbee, but my husband and I love each other and are very happy. We had our ups and downs throughout our first year of marriage, but we’re a solid couple and I’m looking forward to whatever other ups and downs life brings us.

Our relationship has for sure made a transition but every day i realize im still very much in love with my husband. He puts up with my shit with a smile on his face haha

I tend not to gush about my husband on WB, but we are very happy. I often stop in my tracks and think how thankful I am for him and for our life together. I feel very lucky. We’ve been together for 6 years, married for 6 months.
ETA: I also wanted to say that when I find myself most thankful is not because of grand gestures but more when I think about our every day life. It may be mundane to some but it’s a great feeling to be able to be mundane with someone and enjoy it so much.

My husband and I have been married for a little over 8 months and I would definitely call us happy! Sure, we’ve had our share of disagreements. That goes with being around anybody for a long amount of time.
As tough as it was while we were dating/engaged, our long distance relationship is probably one of the best things that happened to us. This is where we really had to work on our communication skills. This has definitely been helpful in our marriage!
I still love coming home to him, falling asleep next to him (except for when we’re both facing the same way and he’s breathing in my face…that has to change! ;-))…those little mushy things are still great!

Its like in Marketing or customer service. People only tell you when something has gone wrong, not when they are going as expected or better than expected.
Therefore, you will generally here more about the problems, but not the great stories. In fact, its a little odd for someone to write a post “Gee I love my husband and my life is great, I dont need any advice”.
But to answer your question, we have been married almost 2 years, 1 month pregnant and life is great. We are hopefully moving soon to a new state again. We love to move. It will be for DH’s job and I am looking forward to not working for a year as I am pregnant and then the first few months of the babys life. Then Ill look for a job in the new locale (assuming we do in fact move!)
Life is good.

Darling Husband and I have been together 10+ years and married for over 3, and I can honestly say that we are incredibly happy and I am so thankful everyday to have him in my life. In our 3 years of marriage, we had 1 rough patch that we worked through with the help of a counselor (you can read about it in my previous posts). Other than that, our marriage has been a dream.
We spend a little time every day cuddling and just reconnecting. We also go out of our way to thank each other for the little things we do for each other. This makes us both feel so appreciated and lucky. Even if it’s “thank you for emptying the dishwasher,” it makes us feel like we aren’t being taken for granted, and that only makes us want to do more to make the other one happy.
We are also cognisant to be very supportive of eachother’s goals and wishes. We never put eachother down or make them feel inferior. We are eachother’s foundation to lean on, and it has helped us achieve so much more than we ever would have on our own.
Now that we are expecting, our love keeps growing. I am finding new reasons to love him as a nurturer and provider, and I think he is fascinated with the whole process of growing a baby and is in awe of how I am becoming so maternal, even though I’m only 9 weeks pregnant.
We still have “date nights”, go on weekend getaways, and are constantly planning small things to look forward to that keep things exciting.
It’s work, but it’s definitely worth it!

We’re coming up on a year!! So far so good. We bicker and can be hard headed but we do love each other and we enjoy just hanging out together. We started out as friends and had an LDR so I think that helped with patience and communication. Of course we love to debate, so that’s never going away lol.
I think you only ever hear of things going south because people are looking for support.

We have been married for three months and nearing our fourth month anniversary 🙂 I can honestly say hubby and I are very happy! Like all married couples, we have had our share of disagreements (had them when we dated and during our engagement). The big difference of having disagreements during our dating and engagement stage from now is how much harder we work to strive to resolve our issues (rather than sulk or continue bikering) and having lots of patience. We love each other trememdously and we want to be with each until death do us part so we do our best to make it work and ensure we are both happy.
Since our wedding, we have moved across the country where we do not have any family or friends. We moved into our new place together since we never lived with each other before our marriage. Rescued a puppy of our own who we love dearly and continue to learn new things of each other. Although it sucks to be away from our families, it has strengthen our relationship even more since we only have each other and I strongly believe it will help us form a solid foundation for our marriage. We still have date nights, we have day trips to the mountains, and when we do not go out, we snuggle on the couch clowning around or just relaxing. He still buys me flowers, chocolates, and he always kisses me when we go to bed and when he wakes up (even when I’m asleep — I know because I feel it). My only compliant of my hubby is his snoring and sharing a blanket with him since we did not live together before our marriage, hehe. Other than that, life is good and it’s evolving.
Just keep in mind that no relationship is problem free and the issues or indifferences one has in a marriage will be different during an engagement or dating phase……you just have to work harder to solve them, I believe. I think it’s worse to hear a couple say there is no disagreements or arguements in their relationship because every relationship has them whether it be something small and silly or something serious. When it comes to those relationships, it seems one person is harboring how he/she feels and not say anything to their partner to aviod conflicts or conforms to their situation.

Darling Husband and I definitely had a rocky start our first couple of years together, even breaking up for a short stint. We’re about four months away from our first wedding anniversary and it honestly gets better everyday!! He makes me happier than I ever thought I could be. He’s such an amazing man and treats me like a queen. Love that man.

Like other bees, I don’t gush about our marriage. But when asked, I’ll gladly tell you that being married to Mr. LK is amazing. I grow happier and fall more in love each and every day. We’ve purchased and are fixing up our forever home. We’ve managed teen LK’s transition into high school. We’ve dealt with serious family medical dramas. And all of the mundane things of life in between. We’ve only grown stronger and closer as a couple. To quote every president in recent history, “The state of the union is strong,” and I am an extremely happy lady. 🙂

We are very happy. Every day has its challenges and rewards at this point in our life, as there are a LOT of changes in the air (husband is back in school, working very part time, I am job searching across the country) but at the end of the day, we are in it together. I love my husband more and more every day, but don’t feel the need to flaunt it publicly.

Darling Husband and I argue quite a bit, but I think that’s just our style 🙂
We love each other and he knows me. Sometime I look at other couples and see one do something that I would have a tough time dealing with (which may work for them!). It reminds me just how lucky I am to have someone who is like me on the important stuff and gets me.

We’re not married, but we’ve been together for 12 years and own a house and are very much a lifelong team… so we feel married in a lot of ways, and very happily so. There is nothing better in the world than knowing you have someone you can count on 100% to be your biggest supporter, playmate, and best friend. We’ve had some rough patches in the past many years, but they’ve just made our relationship stronger. We are even more in love now than when we first got together as madly infatuated teenagers 🙂
