Are they happy?
I like being a stay home mom and wife. It's the best job in the world. I only have to work one job instead of two.
Being single isn't an active choice for a lot of us. It's harder than ever for either sex to meet someone who holds the same values and who is actually interested in settling down and having a family. Not saying it's impossible - I have two married brothers now, but for both, it was almost a miracle that they found one another.
I'm still waiting, praying and hoping for my own miracle. ;-) Not to mention looking.
same here. I like my marriage. I would never bring kids into the world without a 2 parent household. So many families throw away marriage for what? Because someone claims not to be happy? If there is no violence and no infidelity, stick it out, it will make you a stronger person.
