    I would say an 8.
    Reasons why
    1) i am constantly doing stuff around the house oe taking care of kids. He rarely does.
    2) he gets to hang out with coworkers once a week, even gets lunch with them once a week. I dont get that away time at all.
    3) he gets meals cooked for him and i dont.
    4) we have been starting date nights once a month and its been a lot better with our realationship. Before that i would say i was at a 5.

      I'd have to say 9. I love my husband more than anything, but is anything ever really a perfect ten? Our sex drives are vastly different (he's always ready, I normally have no drive at all). This past year and a half has been so incredibly stressful for both of us, and we've both changed a lot from it, not always in a good way, or even a big way. Overall though, I'm very, very happy.

      Oh, I know the military played a huge part. Living with a bunch of guys in a tiny building for months on end? Constant discipline and training and being on edge? I know it's changed him. I still love him, that hasn't changed at all. Every once in a while, though, he says or does something and then catches himself and remembers that he's home and not in barracks life anymore and I just kinda mentally sigh.

        For sure a ten!
        I was single for so long and told by people who loved me that I'd never find anyone...my Mom says now that she was trying to spare my feelings. It was hard not to believe it. When I turned 30 I had never even been asked out before. Then one day seemingly out of nowhere this guy just waltzed into my life and he was so different from every guy I had ever known...and for me he was and is perfect. And now I have someone who loves me unconditionally and I have my little crazy child even though I've always been told I would never have either one.

          I think a 6.We cannot agree about how to handle finances,I'm always finding ways to save money and he likes to gamble,with medicals and hospital bills from my pregnancy and delivery,things are going down the drain,sometimes I think what is the point of being married when you cannot work out things to make it better,besides,he doesn't help with the baby at all,without that nor money,I wonder if being a single mother would be better.

          Adriana, how old is your baby? Did your hubby wanted baby? He'll become a better father, I'm sure - it's a common thing among all my friends, while the baby is too little, they dont know what to do with him/her)). And then guys become proud of kids and love them much.
          By the way, we always argue about finances - but it's just like... our approaches are different, and I try to understand him.

            9 I'm happy with my marriage. 9 because of kids - we dont have kids yet, after six years of marriage. But I hope we'll have little one next year.
            My hubby is supportive and the best person I've ever met, and frankly I even cant imagine myself with someone else ... We've been together since I was 19, so, you know, he is the love of my life) . And one more - we are colleagues, and always have something to talk about).

              I would say a ten. Sure, we have our disagreements but we love, respect, and appreciate one another. He was and still is my best-friend, and we can talk about anything with one another. We still are goofy and have fun with each other, and we enjoy having our little family, with hopes to expand. We also have a Christ centered relationship, which I believe is a major key to a great marriage. I could not and would not want to spend the rest of my life with anyone other than Steven.

                Probably 8 or 9. I gripe a lot, but he really is my best friend, and there's no one else in the world that I could have left everything behind with to grow a life and a family. We're different, but in complementary ways. He's a wonderful husband and honestly the best father I've ever known in real life, and this is just his first time through. Also, while we don't get the chance to do it often lately, he can really get my motor running, if you know what I mean. I don't think it can be perfect, but I'm very happy.

                  7 We are total opposites where, he's extremely educated a I barely finished high school. He's a software developer and tries to talk to me about work and I feel like he's speaking another language. We have lots of other stuff to talk about though! Lol
