ajillity81: Your marriage might not be hard, which is great for you! Please read on…
sunshineflowers: I’ll go forward on the chance that this is a real post. You need to date and then you will see that it can take work to keep a relationship strong and healthy. Some are way easier than others. It really depends on how you are and the person you choose.
Difficult marriages in my life:
ex 1- person I know is married to someone with addiction issues. They hardly knew each other before marriage, they are very religious so divorce is not an option. In the meantime they hope God will make their marriage work and they are both miserable.
ex 2- person I know cheated on his wife, fell in love with other woman, marriage didn’t work out at all
ex 3- person I know – his wife cheated on him. The wife’s depressed. They are still together “trying” to make it work, but he is miserable and she is miserable.
ex 4- me – husband had depression and a personality disorder that he refused to get treatment for. Got tired of living “alone” and him having temper tantrums – acting like a child. Etc etc etc. I deserved better.
ex 5 me- current husband. Easy peasy. Although we have had hardships and it’s all in how you handle those. In our first year of marriage: he lost his job one month before our wedding, I lost my beloved dog, my father became extremely ill and finally passed away. That’s a LOT of added pressues, emotions, and junk to deal with on top of the standard life stuff.
