How many years have you been married?

How many years have you been married? Are you still happy and sweet after being married for a long time? Do you have any regrets? This idea makes me curious of other married couples out there about how they feel after being married. For me I am very much happy and feel so blessed having my husband. On December we are celebrating our 8 yrs anniversary. This topics crosses into my mind because today my husband susprises me, he is attending his 5days seminar and of course i am here in my office the place he used to attend the seminar is so far away from my office but yesterday after attending the training he dropped by here and pick me up for lunch, last night he told me that he cannot come here today coz he need to go home early to help our son review for his lesson, and actually after he go out into that seminar he called me up and making me sure that he cannot come, so i made up my mind not to expect him to come, but i am surprised when someone knocks into our office door and seeing my husband standing there. Sometimes my husband's keep on surprising me but i love him doin that. I do appreciate even a very little things my husband does to me, hope that God continue to bless us and give us the glow of love for the rest of our life till death do us part. Thank you!!!

This December we will have been married for 23 years! First marriage for both of us, although he lived with a woman for several months at one time. We defied all the odds. We met, 3 months later he asked me to marry him, and 3 months after that we were married. 3 years later we had our first child, then 5 years later our second. Now, we are expecting our first grandchild! I have never been tempted by another man and can't imagine being married to anyone else.

This Friday 13th, my wife and I have been married 6 years, and we haven't been happier. There are no regrets, and we look forward to many more years to come. In 2001, when we got married, it was also Friday 13th, which we deliberately chose, as we both believe it is lucky for us, and our happiness today proves it!

Well, we're dropping our four year old son off at nanna and pa's, then going out for a nice meal, be around noon, see you there, lol! Seriously, though, my wife and I won't do too much more, as my son is just getting over a bout of croup, and we don't really want to leave a sick child at the grandparents for too long.Hopefully he'll be a better by then! Thanks for the well wishes!

More than 10 years. We behave just like before we are married. We talk alot, fight when playing online game or X-box. We tease one another. Never change. Our friend feel that we are like buddy and arcade game partner.

Wow, its sounds like you have a true treasure for a husband! We have been married for 8 years this September. Our first year of marriage was awful. But every year since then our marriage gets better and better. There's always ups and downs, but overall I'd say we improve a little bit every year. Well, it had better otherwise life wouldn't be near as much fun. My husband doesn't surprise me that often, but he does add all the spice to my life, that's why I married him. He's fun and gets me out of the house and encourages me to do new things. Otherwise I'm pretty much a hermit crab. God does do amazing things in bringing people together!

Sounds like,hahaha. But honestly my husband is very mature and understanding and of course loving, that's why i am very thankful having him in my life. Ups and downs are part of our life, arguments and misunderstanding for husbands and wives are with them. You also is very lucky having your husband at least you dont get bored staying in your house. And trying to discover new things together is really fun. Thanks for the response.. God bless you and your family..

I have been married for almost 2 yrs. Well I thought I was happy. I do love him so much but i found a different side of him. He likes to talk to women on the internet and I dont mean just chat. My daughter has read some things that he has typed to women without him knowing. This is how i know. I have always wanted to find a good man but i guess i just dont have the luck. This is my second marriage and my last. I have 3 kids to think about. I have been with him for almost 5 yrs. You just never know anymore about people. Its so hard to trust him anymore. I just feel like hes doing something behind my back all the time. I would move out but i cant afford it right now. Im just really lost.

Oh, dont think of that, try to forgive him and give him another chance when it comes to trust, maybe he wont do that anymore..thanks

On the 21st of this month will be our 6th anniversary. We are happy. We are expecting our 3rd child on the 24th of this month. we have 2 little girls also. We've hit some rough patches along the way but we are doing great. we got married young and got pregnant sooner than expected so it made things a little challenging.

Yeah, having child in an unexpected time gives married a more challenging life..

YOur hubby sounds very sweet. We have been married 14 years in Dec, but we have been together for 20. we are pretty happy for the most part. I guess right now isnt a really good time for me to answer this because he made me pretty darn mad yesterday. He has his moments and I have mine. All and all we are happy.

Yes he is, thank you. And i admired both of you for staying long long years with each other. Difficulties and misunderstanding between husband/wife are part of being married but as long as you're happy all of that cant ruin your married life.Thanks for sharing..

My husband and I will be married 4 years on August 1. Last summer we separated and it lasted for 9 months. We have only been back together for a little over 2 months now. Our marriage is a lot better now since we separated but our anniversary is coming up soon and it is going to be bittersweet for me. Last year on our Anniversary my husband decided to tell me that he didn't think he was in love with me anymore (nice day to tell me, right??). So that is something I have to move past but the memory of it will always be there.

Love is lovelier the second time around. Its really hurt hearing that from your husband, though at least know you're together again. Past is past try not to remember that again what important is today and the future. Good luck to your married. Hope you two made it till do you part. Coz i am sad of hearing separation from married couple. Dont worry God will always guide and protect your marriage.

My husband and I have been married for 6 years. We have 3 kids. So far I have no complain. Well, it's not a perfect marriage. He's not perfect and neither do I. But everything is going well. Truth is I have so much to thank for for having my husband. He is very patient. I think God gave him to me because I am not an easy person to deal with. We are very open to each other. We talk about everything and try not to hide anything from each other, but we also keep our individuality.

Been married for alomst 9 years and we dated for 4 years. All together maybe two fights or arguments. Don't have as much time for each other as we use to due to kids and jobs but still cherish the few moments each day that we do see each other.

A simple misunderstanding for married couples sometimes is just normal. Try to have even a short time together and talk all about the both of you. Wish you stay happy.thanks for the response.

That is very sweet of your husband Archer. I am happy to hear you have such happiness in your life :) I have been married for 12 years and I am still very happy. Sure there have been rough times and problems. We all go through that in our relationships. But we have always worked through them and I have to say that I love my husband even more now than I did 12 years ago. We have grown up together basically. Become responsible adults and parents. We have helped each pther and stood by one another. With each passing year, we become closer.

That's wonderful archer1811. What a lovely story! We have been married for 6 years this year and even though we do have our ups and downs, our ups outweigh our downs 10/1. Life couldn't be better with us, even though he is away overseas for work. He has arranged to go on a family vacation when he comes back in August, to celebrate my sons 5th birthday - that was a surprise for us and am excited we are going. It will be our very first vacation together as a family!
