    i'm with nicki.

    sometimes it's hard - especially when you have young children and want to be a couple. there are times when it is so easy. but i wouldn't say it's easy all the time or that's it's hard all the time. it just depends. and as annoying as mr czb can be, i can't imagine sharing my life with anyone else.

    I've been married almost 29 years. I've never found it to be hard work. I think life can be hard, but our marriage is what has gotten us through any of the ups and downs in life. We're a team. Sometimes he's the leader, sometimes I am. Sometimes neither of us know what the hell to do, so we jump in together.

    Nicki, It was really hard for us too at 10 years in. The longer you go, the easier it gets. Promise.

    This is a couple who have everything, though, including live-in parents for many years as well as all the money, staff, houses and vacations they could ever need plus top level contacts all over the world plus they have been together for ever. So don't tell me they have everyday struggles apart from greed and infidelity!

    Maybe that's the problem. In my experience, those everyday struggles are what made my husband and I a team. If we didn't go through all of those things together, I don't know that we'd have learned how much we can truly rely on each other. It seems to me, most of their struggles have been the type that would pull two people apart (like cheating), rather than the kind that teach you to trust and support each other, and I can see how that would make marriage hard work.

    Of course after many years of marriage, you become bored of your wife and start seeing more and more of other women which really complicates things, and trying to keep it in your pants and dealing with an angry and sad partner every time you get caught cheating feels like very hard work.

    Hard work belongs to working for survival,not a marriage,a relationship,a friendship..You might navigate some rough patches.life is not roses and rainbows and pink clouds .But the moment you struggle to keep a marriage alive,you only spend your time suffering..You just let go.After two divorces,i wish i should have stopped beating dead horses and give myself peace and new openings..

    Victoria Beckham checks into wellness retreat which specialises in emotional balance in Germany... after husband David claimed their marriage is 'hard work'


    • Weight-loss and detox packages at the hotel can cost upwards of £17.5k... but they do include a suite

    Her husband David Beckham claimed marriage is 'always hard work' in a recent no-holds barred interview - and two days later, Victoria revealed she has checked into a German retreat which specialises in emotional balance.
    The 44-year-old took to Instagram on Friday to share a picture of herself looking more Sporty Spice than Posh Spice in her workout gear.
    She wore a black vest top, matching leggings and white trainers as she peered out from under a Reebok baseball cap, while perched on top of a mountain.

    Some time for herself: Victoria Beckham has checked into a wellness retreat which specialises in emotional balance in Baden-Baden in Germany... just days after husband David claimed their 19-year marriage is 'hard work'

    Sharing is caring: Victoria, 44, looked incredible as she shared a picture of herself to Instagram on Friday as she documented her trip to the retreat

    The mother-of-four wrote: 'Amazing experience at @villastephaniebadenbaden spa in Baden-Baden x #Wellness.'

    My dad had this uncle he would take us to visit when I was a little kid. The guy was so hard of hearing that my dad had to literally shout everything he said to him. And the guy (my great uncle) had a wife who was like paralyzed from the neck down or something (stroke). Because when we would visit, he would carry her into the room and sit her on the couch. I was basically traumatized at the time seeing all this, but they looked deliriously happy together. If THAT guy and his wife didn't think marriage was hard work, then what excuse would I have?

    I will say, though, that they never had kids, so maybe that is the secret, LOL.

    Stressors, mental health, bad behaviors can really complicate a marriage. I was "fine" when I went through cancer treatment. I wasn't fine afterward and had lots of issues with anxiety and panic. Those impacted our interactions greatly. We got through it and I'm much better, but I can understand if things aren't all smooth, shit can get tough and exhausting. They've got a lot going on with four kids and her fashion business (hey, it doesn't have to be good) and whatever else he gets up to when he's not getting a new tattoo. Not saying it's healthy, but it's probably accurate.

    Yep! But then, if he cheats on her, maybe she wouldn't have that look on her face. But maybe he cheats because of that look on her face.

    It's a chicken or the egg scenario....

    I agree with effie.
    It felt like hard work to me because I was doing all the effort, and the other part didn't care enough.
    I felt very frustrated and now I know I should have left earlier.

    ^^^ well, yeah. the other person needs to put in effort as well. it can't be a burden on just one person.
