    All That Glitters Can Be Gold

    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...
