    For me it's the lack of... how should I put this... ahem, variety.

    Just being honest. What about you other married folks?

    Living with a person you'd sometimes like to kill but, you don't because you'd miss them....

    For my first time around, the hardest part of being married was.............. being married!

    Sometimes, you've got to just lay it out there! and if you can't talk, you're doomed!

    Compromising and communicating. These are the key aspects of a successfull marriage, but the hardest to accomplish.

    Scheduling. We are both so busy with work and the kids activities. But I wouldn't have it any other way. Well, maybe a Butler would be nice...

    Remembering that you're one half of a whole. While we're all used to starring in the Long-Running Story of Me™, with everyone else as valued costars in that movie of our life, it does well to remember that you are the costar in your spouse's movie of their life, as well.

    Dumping the old hausfrau for the trophy wife is expensive.
    But that's the price for Glock perfection.

    The hardest part is trying to not feel like a victim every time something does not go my way. We have been married for 56 years and the key to our success is finally figuring out that we need to spend more time trying to make the other person happy than ourselves. That is the real key.

    Being able to spend quality time together. We take several long weekend vacations throughout the year in order to reconnect and have fun just being us.

    the right partner and you will have variety,
    keeping things fresh and interesting is the responsibility of BOTH partners.

    i was never so lucky.

    Yeah, that sounds great on paper, but try convincing my eyes whenever I see one of life's bounty of beautiful women walk by. Soooo many hot chicks. :innocent:

    Sharing truth. Discussing, accepting, working on the truth.

    From one of the more brilliant minds we have today, Jordan Peterson;

    “Telling the truth to someone is no simple thing. Because there’s a bunch of things about all of us that are terrible and weak and reprehensible and shameful, and all of those things have to be brought out into the open and dealt with.”

    “I am going to handcuff myself to you, and you’re going to handcuff yourself to me. And then we’re going to get to tell each other the truth, and neither of us get to run away. Once we know the truth, then we’re either going to live together in mutual torment, or we’re going to try to deal with that truth and straighten ourselves out – and straighten ourselves out jointly. And that’s going to make us more powerful and more resilient; and deeper and wiser as we progress together through life. “


    I've found that by marrying someone I really actually like and enjoy has helped a great deal. Of course Love, but just wanting to be around that person. There's nobody I'd rather be around than my wife. No matter what we're doing, I want to be with her. After 23 years together I recognize that we have a unique relationship, very different from most.

    Being able to just get up and go. Used to go to NYC at the drop of a hat, for many years celebrated New Years in different cities around the world, etc. Now with kids it's even harder. Everything need to be coordinated and fit into multiple schedules.
