I came across some friends who are not happy in their marriages? i have been married for eight years now and i am very happy with my married life...i think for making any relationship work we need to be patient , understanding, and also need to do some small adjustments and then things go the right way...marriages need to be made to work so we need to shower it with our love and trust..how long have you been married? any regrets? are you fully satisfied with your married life?

The truth is i do not know if i am happy because i really do not spend the whole day with husband. It's always me and my daughter. He loves to spend his whole day and everyday to children he teaches to play instruments for church. I do not know what's happening and i really do not know what to feel. I am very sad but happy. He was y boyfriend when i was 14 and we got married when i was 18 and now i am 21. We are 3 years married and 4 years as girlfriend and boyfriend relationship. All in all 7 years.

well this is sad because what i see there is a lack of communication between the two of you..i suggest that you both take some time off and maybe spend a quiet weekend alone somewhere and talk and rejuvinate your relationship...the monotony of the life has to be broken sometimes..good luck dear

I do not regret getting married but I'm very glad that it's over. It was an ordeal for both of us, but more so for me because I was a mother to my children and couldn't disappear for days at a time as he did. I'm very happy now. I wish there were no unhappy marriages!

I've been married to my husband three years this month. We are happily married, although there are always good and bad times. Making a marriage succeed does take a lot of work sometimes but it is nice to know that you can count on your spouse to stand by you no matter what. And you certainly learn a lot about patience, trust, teamwork and compromise throughout. I'd marry him again in a heartbeat. He's definately one of the good guys.

Love and trust keeps the marriage going and both need to adjust according to one another...we need to work on our marriages quality time and true dedication..you are surely lucky to have a good guy...but i am sure you also must be equally good bcoz sucessful marriages are joint fforts...God bless the two of you and have a nice day..

My husband and I are extremely happily married. We've been married almost 11 years (our anniversary is in Nov). We have had a few rough patches but they have just helped to make our commitment stronger. It's a second marriage for us both, so I think we both appreciate it more than ever, and plan on it being a last for both of us too. We also know of a couple of couple who don't seem happy, one of them pretends to be happy when in front of others, but from what we hear from one or the other when they're separate is a different story.

hi nupats yes I was happily married now I am happily widowed but I had 34 years of a good marriage, we worked on it all the time and we had our problems and our fun, and we stayed in love and in best friends, so I had a happy marriage. no regrets at all altho it would have been nice had the Lord seen fit to let us grow old together but he did not so now I am a widow.

This time around I have been married for six years, and I have to say that I am extremely happy Sometimes, no matter how hard two people work at things they don't work out, but they have to at least try!
