This is with all the pleasure the sexual union may bring to a loving marriage, helping to perfect the love of the couple, its purpose, children are what really make a marriage happy. Or even the pleasures of having fun like my sister and her husband used to do before my niece was born. They used to go out to dinner once or twice a week. Now they are lucky to go out once a month. But the baby has made their marriage even more joyful. It has always been a happy marriage the two and half years but now I think the baby has made it more happy than when their marriage was without child and they were going out to dinner every week. I'm always getting pictures and videos of the baby doing cute and funny texted to me. And now they have another little girl on the way. Personally what I most look for in a marriage is the children. Romance is great but children really give strength to a marriage. I think all these yuppies and people who purposely refuse children to travel and make more love are once of the big causes of the culture of ruined marriage. Marriage is not about romance, at least not upon the whole. It's about children. The girl I was in love with in high school is married and divorced sadly but she had twins and I see so much happiness in her sweet natured virtues because of her children. I am sad that she had a bad marriage, but happy she has two wonderful children to make her happy. I think they have made her an even better person than she already was. They have made someone selfless even more selfless and noble.
