Mackenzie Douthit's 'Fairy Tale' Marriage Sounds a Little Too Good to Be True

Mackenzie Douthit and Josh McKee

You know how after you bring home a newborn baby, everything really kind of sucks and you and your spouse can't even remember why you got hitched in the first place? You know, since you're both sleep deprived and say all sorts of crazy stuff you don't mean?

Yeah, well, apparently that's not the case for everyone, least of all Mackenzie Douthit.

Just wait until you get a load of her description of marriage, which will either a.) make you go awwww! b.) leave you feeling a combination of jealousy and disgust, or c.) have you muttering, "Just you wait, honey ..." under your breath.

Really? She thinks being married is like having a slumber party? Dang. (Where do I sign up for that kind of fairy tale?)

Ok, ok -- so maybe I'm being just a tad harsh. But weren't she and Josh McKee having all sorts of trouble not so long ago? If Mackenzie really is as happy as she's leading people to believe, that's wonderful. Or is she simply painting a pretty picture? Hard to tell.

But either way, hopefully she realizes that while marriage has its high points -- not every single day is going to be all fun and games and ... sleepovers. You gotta take the good with the bad and hope you wind up content somewhere in the middle.

And if she and Josh can find a happy medium all while adjusting to life with little Jaxie? More power to 'em -- because they definitely have a leg up on the rest of the general population.

Do you think marriage is fun?

Absolutely!!! My husband is my best friend we've been married 5 years and it is like a sleepover every night!!! If you don't have fun in your marriage what's the point? Sure there are ups and downs but the writer of this should probably not get married or perhaps look into a separation, obviously you have too much bad, and you sound like a bitter bitch! Stop trying to rain on her parade!!

My husband and I have been married for 8 years and most every night is filled with talking and giggling. We have moments just like every other couple out there but our days and nights are filled with love and laughter. Bedtime is like a sleepover with your best friend, with the added benefit of deep love and romance.

I would have to agree with ^.. I love my relationship, yeah we have our ups and downs but 4 years later and 2yr old son we have never been happier. He is my best friend and we laugh and joke every day. They had there problem 2years ago and it seems they have worked past it and are doing great! Happy for her!

I've known my husband for 15 years now, married for 3. We were friends first, we are friends now. If your marriage has more downs than ups, seek help

Every marriage is full of ups and downs but what is the point of harping on it? So what if she put it out there like that. My husband and I are going on 7 years of marriage and we have 2 kids. We stay up watching tv, talking and laughing. That is OUR time. Where we don't let anything intrude.

I have been married 24 years and I STILL feel like this.  I honestly feel sad for people that don't, specifically the author of this article...

Absolutely! There are times when our marriage takes a whole lot of work, but what marriage doesn't? My husband and I started dating at 15 & 16 years old, have been together 14 years, and married 9. We started out as friends and quickly realized that we had a deeper connection. More ofthen than not that we are teasing, giggling, laughing, and joking around long after our 3 kiddos have been tucked in for the night. I wouldn't trade it for the world.

Of course it is. We've been married 15 years. Not every day is all fun and games, and every marriage requires work. But even on the worst days we usually manage to make each other laugh. We've been through a lot in the past 15 years...including addiction, a child with Tourette's syndrome/autism spectrum disorder (the tourette's causes ADHD, OCD, anxiety disorder in addition to having tics), financial hardships, and many other things. Through it all we've managed to keep a sense of humor.

I have been married for 7 years. And of course not every night is like a sleep over, but most are. What's wrong with her being happy enough to brag about that? I'm sorry that her being so happy she wants the world to know made this author feel this way

Not everyone has a crappy marriage! I completely agree with her!
