How close are you with your spouse? Hubby and I have been together almost 18 years (married for nearly 12) and we still laugh and have fun together like we did when we were first dating as teenagers. Sure we have our bad times (usually to do with money) but in general we are more in love now that ever. I'd love to hear more stories like this :)

We are going on our 10th year and I feel more in love with him than I have in the last years as well. I thik we have hit a point where we know we will be with each other forever. We had a rough spot for a few years but we are past that and now we just love being with each other and dont like to do things without each other. I want to grow old with him and he with me and we just love to be togehter. Thanks for the topic!

My hubby and I have been together for 10 and a half years (married for almost 6). We were high school sweethearts. We are really close and our relationship really strong still. We hate doing anything (even going to work) with out the other person. As you said we've had our ups and downs up the downs just stregthen us. He's wonderful. He's stood by even though I can't give him biological children. I'll always appericate him all the more for that. I wouldn't trade him for all the money in the world.

Sounds an awful lot like my hubby and I...we were high school sweethearts as well. We still carry on like teenagers (lol but we don't get grounded for playing hooky anymore!) sometimes. It's good to know you've got yourself a keeper, isn't it?!!

My relationship with my girlfriend is 6 years now and counting. It was the ride of my life and I hope it'll continue to better things. First, we thought were incompatible because we lead such different lives. She's a supermodel while I'm in the military, I.T. and real estate. It took some time before we realized that we actually had a lot of interests in common. Of course there were still differences but we learned to accept each in spite of. Relationship is always a compromise. 1 person can never have it their way, there should be sharing and most importantly there should be a meeting of the minds. Time is irrelevant for us. What is more important is how much we've learned about one another and also from ourselves during those times. It's a character development process.

wow. that is so sweet of you guys! i've been married for 8years now. my husband doesn't stay with us for a whole year because of his work. we have our fair share with the bad times, too. but whenever he is home we share quality time together with the kids. we share the same quality time with just the two of us. we love walking along together, just holding hands and whisper sweet nothings like when we were just sweethearts.

that's nice!we'rejust five years together.westill go out once in a while, when we had the time but makes sure we brought along our kids.we love dining out and checking out nice restos arount town.but wedo fight,but over small stuffs that we end up laughing it out before the day ends.we don't like pour kidsto see us fightingso we avoid confrontations especially around them.you see,we've met before,but had different gf/bf but in the end we end up together.i guess we were really meant to be together so i shouldvalue our realtionship.i guess iam a submissive wife to him that makes our relationship a tough one.i try to understand and he does too!!i salute you for having a fun ,loving relationship,wish we'd experience it also.
