Welcome to Happy Marriages! We are your co-hostesses, jilrani, sonsah and elvenforever. This is a place where husbands and wives can come together and talk about how their marriages work -- what works, what doesn't work, and what can be improved. It's not meant to be a bitch session about our spouses -- it's meant to be a place where spouses can love each other, rejoice in each other, and make even better marriages for themselves.
There are a few things to know. The most important thing to know is that to join this community, you must be married. "A marriage is a relationship between or among individuals, usually recognized by civil authority and/or bound by the religious beliefs of the participants." -- Wikipedia. There are many, many, many other communities on LJ for people in love relationships of various kinds, but this one is about marriage only. We don't require applications here. This is a place to share, not a popularity contest. We also don't require you to promote. First of all, that is actually against LiveJournal's TOS; second, we figure that if you like us, you'll spread the love anyway. Two rules: all jerks and trolls will be banned promptly, no questions asked. So don't be a jerk. Second, promoting IS allowed, but put it under a cut please. With all that in mind, please enjoy your stay at happymarriage!
