    Good Marriage

    I see so many groups about bad marriages that I thought I'd check to see if I'm the only person that likes my marriage. Glad to see I'm not! My marriage is good because we're together, faithful, working through our fights (and there are some doozies!), and we have a great sex...

    A Good Marriage

    I have never seen so many people with bad marriages, unhappy with their marriage, and want to cheat. Am I the only one with a good marriage? It's not perfect, but that would be boring!! Being on EP, I told mt husband, THANK YOU!
