Watch out for the 7 year itch, though. It's a killer no matter how old you are.
The Seven-Year Itch
Experts observe that this phase is often characterized by feelings of restlessness and unhappiness over the state of your union. "Over time, people can find themselves drifting further and further apart and communicating less," says Nick Stinnett, Ph.D., professor of marriage and family studies at the University of Alabama.

I wonder why some couples just grow apart? a good marriage requires alot of work (but so does anything worth while). Ive heard the #1 reasons for divorce are money, and communication.

Communication, there was little if any. I don't know why, I'd get up, go to work, come home, have dinner, usually just sit around or watch tv or something then go to bed. A lot of times, I'd sleep on the couch, I was being stubborn. My first wife wasn't very interested in sex. While I, we'll let's just say 2-3 times a day would be good.
No Serioulsy and I'm not being a pig or selfish, when I say 2-3 times, I don't mean just as pleasure for myself, I mean to give and receive and be there for her.
I'll admit that I could have tried harder with my first marriage, but the more I think about it, I honestly don't think I would have been happy.
I'm so glad that I had a chance to meet someone and fall in love again. I understand that this time, we must communicate to be happy and understand each other. I love her so much, even more than the first time I realized I was in love with her. there's nothing I wouldn't do for her and for us. I'll put her up on a pedestal and do whatever it takes to make her happy and her life as enjoyable as possible.
