Wow It's great to be married isnt it? I have been married to my husband for four years now, still fairly new, but we have been together for seven years going on 8. I have a beautiful baby girl. My family and my marriage means the world to me! We have had many problems in our marriage, but it all started after our daughter was born.we got married, and a month later I found out I was expecting. It has been hard and very difficult, but I am not a strong believer in divorce. I think when all else fails, and theres no going back, than yes it is in the answer, but for me I am a very religous person, and I don't believe that just becauseyou have differences in your opinions, than yo should divoce, so we do all we can to make it work. we are both very stubborn people, and we clash a lot, but when it rolls down to everything being over, we realize our mistakes. I would love to hear more about others thoughts on marriage, on both the spirtual aspect, or maybe even just discussing marriage itself, to help others understan dtheir lives of marriage!

I think all marriages undergoes trials and many end up their vows. There are successful marriages whose stories are similar to you or much even worse. If you really want to preserve your marriage you have to work hard and pray a lot. You should know his weakness and extend your patience. Try to examine yourself you might wronged him also. Be ready to forgive again and again. I do believe that forgiveness is the key to all successful relationship. Pray to God to give you the strength to forgive him as it is not an easy thing to do. Ask the Lord to guide and enlighten your husband, to keep him away from all the temptation and mostly to return that love he had with you. You have to pray a lot and have to really, really wait. The Lord will also test your patience. It will take years to have a harmonious marriage but God will answer your prayers in due time. Don't forget to pray also for your beautiful daughter that she will grow with her beautiful and loving mom and a dashing dad and with her other siblings to come. All of you altogether in one happy family. Smile!

Wow I gotta say that was awesome..I love your response!! Thank you! I guess my biggest issue with my marriage is when he knows his faults and doesn't try to work on them, when that happens the patince gets tested to the limit! :) Don't get me wrong, my husband is awesome, and I would not trade him for anything in the world. I have the most gorgeous baby girl, and I am so thankful that God saw fit to give me a family to take care of. I am blessed. I knew I wanted to be with him from the first week I met him, and he and our marriage is completely worth all the work!! once again thank you that was great!

I am just married for about two months, and still enjoying our honeymoon. I have no idea on how our marriage will be in the future but surely I will do my best. I am less experienced and hopefully I will be more mature, patient and understandable...

wow well congrats on the marriage..It is an aweomse thing, and I would never trade it for the world. Thats all we ever hope to do is our best, but sometimes men do things to hurt you, without even meaning too, and vice versa...The thing that we so easily forget is if you know your right thats all that matters, theres no need to have to prove ourselves, because then the arguement gets worse and worse, an dyou get madder and madder. Just walk away thats the simplest thing I can tell you than come back when no ones heated anymore..But i will say thats not the easiest thing in the world to do.. well adios for now!
