I have been Blessed with a happy marriage as well, we have our times that have been down a bit though, for the most part we are really just very happy together.
I do believe that most marriages are not very happy ,not necessarily here at MDC, but in general, in the US anyway. Look at the divorce rate- it's around 50% right? So- the vast majority of those divorcing are not in happy marriages, and then you take into account all of the people who are still married and very unhappy, and, well... there's not a ton of happy marriages out there.
I think that there is hope for most unhappy marriages, and that is why people post here (some of the time anyway) to get ideas on improving things, or to vent, or whatever.
There are soooo many reasons why a marriage will be on the rocks, and so many great people within those marriages.
I am rambling, just wanted to say that you are not alone, but I agree with PPs who say that most people just don't post about their blissful marriages here. We do seem to have threads every so often like this one though, or we'll get a spin off of "what I love about my dh" etc.
