I got married 8 yrs ago when I was 23..... we are together since 1996. My sister doesn't lke my hubby as he's quiet, shy and not a drinker, the complete opposite of her husband. He is quiet and shy but not with me or my friends or his friends but he knows she doesnt like him so he's very guarded around her. When we got married she didn't buy us a wedding present as she says we weren't gonna last and she actually asked me why I married him!!!! Many of my friends and his have told us that they would like a relatonship like ours as we are best friends and in love. The rest of my family love him and he also knows that so at least he doesnt feel like my family are against him, He's very close to my brothers and my mother thinks he is a pure gentleman. My sister often makes comments about our closeness that its all a show and people who go on like us in public are different behind closed doors and that we're just putting on a big show to pretend our relationship is perfect. Our marriage is not perfect, we fight, we make up, we're broke 50% of the time but we have a roof over our head, food in the cupboard and love in our hearts so we're happy. We do not put on a show for others, we genuinely adore each other and cant hide it and I dont think I should hide it. I just wish she could at least pretend to like him for his sake and for mine.
