I have the priveledge of being Married now for almost 9 1/2 yrs. now. In a lot of ways, it seems like only a short time, and as the days go by, I am more in Love with my husband than the day we got married. This is my first marriage, and hopefully my last. We try and do a lot of Fun things together as time and $$ permit always hoping for the best. A couple of yrs. ago when I got really sick, and was on antibiotics for over 3 months, it was quite a trying time for sure, but one where if anything we grew closer than we were before. Feel Free to share some of your stories. ~~TINA~~

I don't quite understand. You won't ever get married because of your children?

My husband and I got married on March 14, 2008 so we're pretty new at the whole marriage scene. We have been together for 5 years and lived together for most of that time. Neither of us believe in divorce, so we're making the best out of what we got. Together we have two little girls who are 2 years old and 10 months old. They keep us pretty busy, and give us a base for everything we do.

I have been married for 18 years. This is my first and only marriage, KrauseHome. If something happens to this one, well, I am sure that it will be my fault, without a doubt, but I won't do it again. Who else in their right mind would have me anyway.

I am for 8 years although we have been together for 13. It seems like forever, but I would not want it any other way.

I am married and have been with the same wonderful man for 13 1/2 years. It is my first marriage and his second as he was married when he was 18. We have had many ups and downs and we have seperated a couple of times, but we always get back together within a day or two and we realize that it is because we both are stubborn and won't give in to the other one even if they are right.

I am married. I have been married twice - 11 years the first time ending in divorce, and 24 years to my second husband. It is the tough times that will either make or break a marriage. If you make it through, your marriage will be stronger for it.

I was married before. The marriage lasted for only 2 years. The person I meet and loved was not the person I married. What I mean is that he totally changed when we got married. I'm glad to hear that you have a great marriage and a great husband. I hope ya'll love last forever.

Yes, I am also happily married for 18 and a half years! It was my husband's second marriage, but my first and, like you say, hopefully my last! We enjoy each other's company very much and have two children, a girl who is nearly 17 and a boy who is 15.

My husband and I have only been married for one year. We hit our one year anniversary on June 1st. That first year was pretty tough and not all the "honeymoon phase." I hope this will be my only marraige and we can continue to make each other miserable.... erm, happy for the rest of our lives. HAHA!! :)

I think that's wonderful! It is so true that you find out who your real "friends" are in times of trouble. Because you must be friends along with being in love for a good, solid relationship, it sounds like you and your husband have something very special. I will be celebrating my third anniversary in August. This is not my first husband, but he certainly will be my last. We're very happy, and have gotten closer as time goes by. We had a rough spot last year, but we got through it and are very, very happy now. I think you hit the real 'key' to a good relationship... spending time together. Too many couples tend to go their separate ways in everyday life and spend less and less time together. That can lead to a breakdown in communication, which always leads to trouble. I am very happy for you! It sounds like your marriage is rock-solid. Congratulations!

Hello! My husband and I will be married 25 years in December. He is a wonderful and caring husband and a terrific father to our two kids. We have had some our moments of trying times but we have always stuck them out together and I love him the more for it. This is a terrific discussion!!
