Happy Marriages Forum Shows Marriage Can Be Wonderful

I created a forum on Reddit to highlight the happy marriage stories that often get buried by the media, r/HappyMarriages. I love seeing posts from people who are still deeply in love after being married 20, 30, or more years. If you want to brag on your spouse or read some uplifting stories, you should join us!

The Media Loves Negativity

I hate all the negative messages that we hear from the media about marriage.

Divorce statistics show that those who get married before age 20 have only a 40% chance of the relationship surviving.

Those are the negative stats that the media loves to throw out, but they don't tell the full story.

Those same statistics show that couples who wait until they are at least 25 to get married have a 70% chance of staying married. Add in a college degree and attending a religious service regularly, and survival rates jump up to over 90%!

It's not all doom and gloom like you hear in the media.

Surround Yourself With Positive People to be Happy

Surrounding yourself with positive people is the best way to stay positive yourself.

It's easy to think that everyone hates their job if everyone around you hates their job. When you get around people who love their jobs, you may find that you enjoy yours too.

Zig Ziglar had something to say about hating your job

It's easy to believe that a marriage has to be a burden if all you ever see are negative stories. But read a few of the posts in r/HappyMarriages and you will realize that many couples are very happy.
