I’ve been married for two years and I can honestly say I love my husband more now than on the day I married him. It is a wonderful thing to know I have this man beside me for the rest of my life. Sure, he annoys me from time to time, but I am sure I annoy him too sometimes. In the end, I know that no matter what else happens, he loves me and will always be there for me, no matter what.
Ok…that was enough sappiness for one post! Yikes!

Yes, very happily married.

Very much so.
I really do still want to pinch myself as I feel very fortunate to have met my husband and to be sharing my life with him. It is even better that he regularly shares (and shows!) that he feels the same way. We both have regularly commented about how it was one of the best decisions we each have made in our lives (the getting married to each other, that is). I love him very, very much.
Is everyday a honeymoon where we just gaze into each other’s eyes? No, as life can get in the way with its own craziness and so there are days that we both can start feeling a bit distant, but we work at remaining connected, sharing ourselves with each other, getting in the quality time, and having fun together too. He is truly my best friend and we can talk (and do talk) about everything and anything. Not only do I feel grounded, but I also feel incredibly free as he supports and encourages my individuality. I strive to do the same for him. I quite honestly have no complaints about him or our relationship, and it saddens me when I see sometimes how many people seem to just assume that love must come with drama, constant pain and frustration. It does not need to be that way.
I won’t inspire the single ones just to jump into it though. I don’t want anyone to look at my and my husband’s marriage and say “oh, they are happy, so certainly that would be my experience too!”. From my own experiences, not only do I think happiness is something we make for ourselves, but I also will say that being married itself is not what creates happiness in my life. I am very happy in my relationship, but that is also because of the nature of the relationship we have, and the kind of people we both are, as well as all the little things like meeting at the right time in our lives after some life and personal experiences and so on. Marriage itself did not change anything about our relationship, as all of that was there before and if it wasn’t, well marriage would not have fixed it! I can guarantee that if I had married one of my past partners, I would not be so happily married.

Every single day I wake up more in love with Darling Husband. I’m not exaggerating and since this is anonymous I’d tell you if it was bad. We both openly talk all the time about how getting married was the best decision we both made in our entire lives. Think of everything you do in life and how much work it is (traveling, paying bills, housework, cooking, walking the dog etc) and then split the responsibility of it in half since you have someone else to split everything with. I love sharing my life with someone and it’s just so easy being married.
But that being said, I have the best marriage that I’ve ever seen in real life. It’s hard for me to be around girlfriends when they complain a lot about their husbands and I have nothing to complain about. Marriage is hard work, but when you pick the right person it’s SO rewarding and amazing.
My husband is out of town now and just writing this makes me miss him so much!

YES! My husband and I have been together for almost 6 years and married for almost two years. I am more in love with him today than I was the day I married him. He is honestly my rock and I couldn’t picture my life without him! We have seen some hard times (including that of a miscarriage, medical problems and just life problems in general) but we always tough it out together working forward to make things better and to be there for one another to lean on!

Very much, but it does take effort and work from both parties to keep a happy, respectful, and fun marriage! I once had a coworker, who had been divorced, who told me to never stop taking time to connect each day. When things get super busy and you can’t spend as much time together as you did in the past, it is so important to have that connection and take time to hug,kiss, and talk everyday.

Not married yet, but we’re happy! I will say, though… not 100% of the time. I’m not elated every moment of every day. We have our issues, and outside stresses that sometimes hurt us. I think that’s normal. I don’t like the idealization of marriage/relationships. This shit ain’t perfect. It’s hard sometimes. But I wouldn’t put in the effort/energy for anyone else, and I’m happy to spend my life with this person 🙂

- Wedding: October 2011 - Bed & Breakfast
We are more head over heels in love with each other than we were on our wedding day. Every day I count my blessings, and Mr. LK and teen LK are always first on that list. I am so lucky to have Mr. Lk as my partner in life, and I am so lucky that he tells and shows me how much he appreciates me, too.

I am happily married. Not every moment we are together is exciting, and I don’t get butterflies every time he walks in the room, but we are happily married.
It is routine sometimes, and it does come and go, though. For example, I was in a bad mood last night and got snappy at him while I was cooking dinner. We ate dinner together at the table, uninterrupted, and I cheered up. We had a good time watching the election returns together. Then I ended up sleeping on the couch while he slept in the bed (long story – I thought there was carbon monoxide in the bedroom). Does that sound like a fairytale? Not at all. But I love him and appreciate him SO MUCH. We have a lot of fun together too, and have such a great DINKs lifestyle. But we’re not madly obsessively head over heals for each other 24/7. Make sense?
