    That does not mean I am happy all the time

    but I AM married all the time. I wonder if the divorce rate is so high because people forget that... Life doesn't end after you say "I do" Granted your old life dies but a new and endlessly exciting one takes its place. Without ups and downs, twists and turns, and the...

    My husband and I have been friends

    since I came to New Zealand when I was 4, and although we both dated a bunch of other people, it ended up being that people assumed we were dating. We started officially dating when I was 15, and somehow our parents gave us permission to get married when I was 16 (he was 17...

    Extremely

    I'm extremely happy and extremely married. There isn't another man on the planet I would want to be with. I love my husband with my heart, mind, body, soul and spirit. I love it when we click together.  We finish each others sentences and seem to know what the other is thinking...

    Is it hypocritical to say I'm happily married

    but I enjoy a little flirting on the side? I know where my "bread is buttered" so to speak but is it normal to like the thrill of engaging naughty conversation with new people?

    I am very happily married.

    I married my childhood sweetheart. I have had kids out of our marriage and my husband is fine with that. In fact, he encouraged me a few times to get pregnant by black male friends of ours. I am pregnant now and my husband is not the father of my baby.

    She is not perfect. I am not perfect.

    Our marriage is not perfect. If you get to know me, you'll come to understand I have reasons to be here. I flirt innocently. All kinds of stuff. But, regardless, I love her and that's that. I have no plan, intention, or thoughts of leaving her. She is right for me. After all...

    Almost no one is foolish enough to imagine

    that he automatically deserves great success in any field of activity; yet almost everyone believes that he automatically deserves success in marriage.

    I picked myself a good one!

    :) He knows just what I need when I need it, be it just a night to myself or a date night with him - he knows when I feel like we need to spend more time together as a family and when I really just need to go to my parents house alone for the weekend. He just "gets me" - and...

    Does anyone else turn into pudding

    when hearing your wedding song? I do. When we're in an argument and our song comes out it tends to calm me down. I go from wanting to punch him, to kissing him. I wonder if he's caught onto that and will use it as a weapon in the future. :)

    Why am I loving being a submissive wife?

    Because I am not a man, nor manly in any way. I am a woman...all woman. I love a door being opened for me. I enjoy the honor he gives me as his wife. I enjoy giving the tough choices to my husband who is more comfortable making them. I enjoy the love and protection my dominant...

    Not Perfect But Happy

    My husband and I love to have fun.

    We like to try new things, however, we do not share. He loves to expose me but that's as far as it goes. Would he like to see with someone else, probably. I just don't understand guys obsessions with wanting to see their wives with other men. ???

    I am very happily married to a very good man.

    I did not marry until later in life (40ish) and, while I didn't understand why, I now realize it was best for me. We are both very independent and have chosen to share our lives with each other. Mutual respect from both sides and the maturity to know that disagreements and/or...
