  • And they lived happily ever after.” Think about this line for a few minutes. Are you living happily ever after? If not, what will it take for you to get there? See all answers
  • Happily Ever After
  • Happy Enough.
  • “And they lived happily ever after” is why Disney invented movies. You don’t see Jasmine worrying about her unemployment check and obviously Cinderella does alright at the end, marrying her prince. Aladdin doesn’t get laid off from work, ever. But, no one stays in that state of ecstasy of being a newlywed forever. It’s a fantasy. I’ve been married almost twenty-five years. I think that is a wonderful thing. Has it been easy all the time? No. Have we gone through rough patches? Yes. Not everyone wants to work through them, for some it’s just a quickie divorce. Marriage is a serious commitment: to each other and to our children. My husband and I are great friends, we have the same values; we love and like each other. All the time? That makes me laugh. Most of the time? Absolutely. Here’s to (at least) another 25! Congratulations to US!

  2. Happily ever after….isn’t that what they call the Cinderella syndrome?
    I adore my husband….I can say I love him and like him as a person all the time. Are we happy with each other every moment…no, we have our moments…but when what ever we were disagreeing about is finished, we know we always had each other…every moment, there is no one I’d rather weather out the bad times with, and love and laugh with during the good times.
    No one I’d rather be with….ever. thank goodness, we are together almost every moment of every day….at least in the same house.

    More people should learn to work on things…heck, Stuart and I go to therapy to help us deal with how much things changed in our lives after i got sick…it’s amazing how much closer we are.
    And many other people should learn to work on things BEFORE they get married! Make sure you’ve dealt with your own issues and you have dealt with issues together…don’t start a new life with someone and suddenly be surprised at the baggage they are bringing with them.
    (can you tell I have a friend who’s getting a divorce…again?)


    • exactly! people go into relationships and think they can change an individual.STOP right there. You can’t and you shouldn’t. It will not work and it never will. Get things straight before things become serious. is your friend getting a divorce for the second time or is it 2 different friends?
