I know this is a board for those planning weddings and newlyweds… but just wondering if there’s anyone here been married for a while, and still happy? I don’t think I even know what this is. The only married couples I know are super old (married 40+ years) and don’t really seem that happy, or really young (married just a year or two) and still in the honeymoon stage. I know of only one actually happy married couple who’s been married for exactly 5 years. Everyone else who’s been married that long seems to be either pissed off with their husband or divorced.
So I guess I’m just looking for some reassurance in strangers – if you’ve been married longer than 5 years, how do you keep it decent? I’ve always thought that it’s not so much about finding the perfect person, but about loving the person you’re with, and not resenting them for things you disagree on, or their so-called faults… which seems to be the main reason for divorce and break-ups that I can see. Thoughts?
