    A 'happy marriage' is surely an oxymoron? I fail to see why people feel the need for the state to interfere and 'bless' their relationships!

    I'm quite happily married, with children as well. I don't see that changing anytime, to be honest. As a matter of fact, my husband and I get on very well, and we almost never fight. I couldn't imagine myself not married, it feels like marriage is my vocation. My husband seems to like it too, never heard any complaints. I guess what makes our marriage work is communication, honesty, understanding and compromise and of course, we try to keep the spark alive and enjoy some husband-wife moments. While it can be tricky when the children are young, I think it's still important to go on date nights and enjoy some intimacy with each other and avoid falling into routine.

    Yes, I'm happily married and I wouldn't want it any other way. Being single without children would make me feel very, very unfulfilled, lonely and unhappy. Being a married mother is what I'm meant to be and what I was made for. It feels good to have a loving husband who gives me safety, protection and a strong shoulder to lean on. I'm also happy for my children that they grow up with both mother and father in a healthy and intact family. My husband and I get along very well and fight very rarely, if at all. And even if we fight, it's still very "civil", we would never call each other bad names or insults or something. We agree on most things anyway and share the same values in many aspects and we have common goals in life. If we don't agree on something we talk about it and try to find a compromise. I tell him every day that I love him and will always support him. We've been together for almost 9 years now and I think/hope it will last forever.

    I'm happily married, since about 2 years. Most people in my family have also been happily married, there was only one exception which lead to divorce.

    The fact that it's quite rare is a new phenomenon. Marriage used to be for life, with few exceptions. The number one reason behind this change I would say is the sexual liberation movement, as well as feminism, LGBT and other deviancies, as well as attacks on the traditional family.

    When people had marital issues, they would sit down, talk them through and try to fix them. Also people who had children would stay together and work out their issues for their sake. Today, as soon as there are problems, or people get bored with their marriage, they run towards divorce. A marriage is like a house. If a lightbulb or doorknob gets broken, you don't sell the house and buy a new one, instead you fix the broken lightbulb/doorknob.

    I've also noticed a lot of people these days shy away from marriage because they're afraid it might end up in divorce. Obviously, if you enter a relationship with a negative mindset, it might become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

    I've not been married for too long but I'm happy with my husband and I intend to keep it that way. I agree with what Resist wrote that "Marriage is like any other team project and needs both sides involved." Other peoples say that marriage is like a garden or plant that needs regular watering and trimming out of the weeds, etc. So, it's something that takes a little bit investing, but it can work. I hope to have a happy and long marriage, literally until the death parts us.

    Happily married and with a daughter. We try to build with our best actions an altruistic and robust bridge for the future. That's my motto.
