Also, are you happily married? If not, why do you stay in your marriage? This stuff just fascinates me!

We just celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary last week. It doesn't seem like it has been 20 years. We are happy in our marriage and I can think of no other place I would rather be than where I am now. Of course we have our spats but we still love each other and have respect for each other. We always confide in each other and give each other space when it is needed. My husband is my best friend and still makes me laugh. We are looking forward to our future years together with all our dreams and plans.

I have been married for 10 years now going on 11th this coming September. In my 10 years of being married, though we have ups and downs which is normal in married life. I could say that I'm the happiest woman in the whole world. My husband and I are very supportive with each other.

almost 13 long years. AND, till now, very happily married. Except for the part of making money. Which is the only point of contention between us. Otherwise, all is very well. and, we are blessed with two wonderful kids. All responsibilities of raising the kids is hers. JUST loitering and hob-nobbing is mine. LOLS. thankyou

We have been married for eight years now. Marriage takes a lot of work and commitment to stay together.

I have been married for almost 8 years. It has been fun for the most part. Financial hardship has been the source of most of our problems. We live in Pensacola, FL, which is probably one of the worst economies in the country, so good paying jobs are few and far between here for the average person. Unless you transfer here working for a big corporation, or unless you have a Masters degree or something of that nature, it is hard to find a good paying job. If an average person with a 2-year degree can find a job around here making $12-15 per hour, they should consider themselves lucky. If we could get our financial situation stabilized, we would have a lot less problems. Overall, though, it has been a pretty good 8 years.
