Are you happily married or not?

Philippines
September 1, 2008 9:00pm CST
My bestfriend called me up last night and she was crying. Apparently, she had a fight with her husband. We talked for a long time and I remember her telling me that even if you're already married, it's not a guarantee that you'll be happy. So I want to know if you're happily married or not? Please be honest with your replies. I would appreciate it.

Dear, happiness is a state of our mind. We can be feel happy even with small favours done by our partner and if we cannot condition our find, we may not feel happy, even if our partner sacrifes her entire life for you. It is a matter of contentment between partner, if I feel contended with my partner's deeds and gestures, I will say that I am happily married and if I do not want to feel contended I will also crib about one thing or another. Please remember, no body is perfect, everyone has got some positive and negative traits, as well. So we should try to adjust ourselves with our partner with his/her both the traits.

You're definitely right. The problem with some people is that they never are contented with what they have. They always want more. I appreciate the wisdom of your words and I will surely remember them as I go through life.

I am happily married!! My husband and I just got married last July 5th. Our relationship as bf-gf wasn't easy. We've been in a long distance relationship for almost 3 years. It was tough for both of us that we ended deciding to end the relationship. But here we are!! happy being together. We've been through a lot in our relationship, as in A LOT!!! Knowing each other well like from the tip of each hairs to the tip of the toe is very important! accept and respect each other! being happy together in married life, depends to you and your partner :)

I'm glad that you're happy and finally you're together. I guess you're really meant for each other because eventhough you went through alot, you still ended up together. That I think is destiny. I hope someday I'll be able to find my destiny. Congratulations on your wedding.

That is correct there are no guarantees. Marriage takes work and patience. I have been married twice. The first time was bad much arguing and differences in what life is. My second marriage has been great. We have had hard times, don't agree on everything however the things that are most important in life, we totally agree on. So we have been happily married for 23 years. It took work on both parts. I think that one has to pick their battles and not sweat the minor stuff.

I'm very happy for you. I hope that when I do get married, I wouldnt have plenty of problems. Here in the philippines there's no divorce only annullment of marriage and that's quite expensive, so one should really be sure if he/she wants to get married. It's not easy to get out of it. I'm actually scared of getting married because it entails alot of commitment and hard work which I dont think im ready to do.

Im not married yet so may be i dont know the exact thing of what is marriage all about , how would a marriage life be, but by seeing my parents , even though they fight a lot they never hate each others to the core or something , they love each other , they are not showy before us at all and they have bitter moments all most everyday and in that they still found to be loving couples. this is marriage life, you must love your partner and try to love more even when he/she is not understanding you , one day your love will let them understand your heart :)

Yes. Anyway we have been married for 26 years. That is not to say that we don't have our problems and issues though. And there are somedays when I am not particularily happy but then I think we all have days like that. And I still do love the guy even if he does annoy me sometimes.
