A Day in the Life of a 'Facebook Marriage' (PHOTOS)

couple having dinner

Sigh. You know what I most definitely want to have in my next life? A Facebook marriage. Not your regular husband and wife struggling to balance work, their relationship, and kids kind of marriage most of us are accustomed to.

Nope. That's for the birds. But if we could all live in the perfect utopia that is the type of marriage people can't resist trying to paint a picture of on Facebook? There would be, like, zero divorces in this country.

Why would anyone want to leave something so pure, blissful, euphoric, and simply freakin' awesome?!? It would be like being on vacation or attending a super cool party or something -- every day for the rest of your life.

Check out these photos to get a true glimpse of what life inside a Facebook marriage looks like.

It's where it's at, people.

Do the liars people who post about their flawless, wonderful marriage on Facebook make you want to scream?

I never got around to getting a FB account so I don't have any FB problems lol. However, I see that all the examples you've given are from the wives not a single one from a husband. It reeks of jealousy and bitterness. Work on your marriage and you might have something nice to post on FB.

Lol , this was funny. You forgot to mention how they ran a marathon together!

I've noticed that often times, the people who are always posting about how wonderful their love lives are, are the ones who are having nasty break-ups six months later.  The people who are truly happy don't feel the need to post everything.  I have a wonderful husband, but I rarely post anything sappy.   I'm not about to complain that he left his dirty socks on the floor ... again, but like Courtastic said, if he does something super sweet, I just might post a pic or comment because I so appreciate it and I really do love my husband.  :)

You sound bitter. Next you'll have a post about how annoying it is when people post about their fights on Facebook. If it bothers you that much, block their feed.

You don't want a marriage, you want a man slave.

Jealous much? While our marriage isn't like the pictures posted (as a previous commenter said, "man slave"), my husband and I enjoy a wonderful marriage. And yes, I post it on Facebook. I don't post the silly arguments about finding his socks in the sofa (again!!!) or anything negative because that's not who I am. I always try to see things positively and I try to share that positivity... and guess what? My Facebook friends are now doing that too. So instead of a feed covering in wives dissing their husbands, my feed is loaded with other happy comments. And if my friends don't like it, they're not really my friends.

Well that was bitter. Of course most people post about highlights and great things that happen. And then of course theres the bitter dirty laundry airers. No one wants to share their mundane day to day life of chores and bill paying.

No ones lifes perfect and ive learned that you cant want other peoples highs without their lows too, and many times their lows are way deeper than yours. They just dont share those with the world

She's not bitter, she's right. I'm married, I'm in heaven... I keep him to myself. I like private moments together because they're just that... PRIVATE. If you feel the need to post your awesome wonderful perfect super fans taste hubby on Facebook, it's for no other reason than to prove to someone else your marriage is good. Women who do that are trying way too hard. "The lady doth protest too much." Enjoy the moments with your husband yourself instead of trying to prove to others he's better than them/their husbands. I'm over the moon in my marriage and I have been for 13 years, but I don't feel the need to post it all over Facebook because the marriage is between he and I -- not everyone we know. The best sign of a successful happy marriage is no sign of it on social media.

No way am I in a perfect marriage. We have our problems and we have our spats...but why would I post something so negative about my husband on my page for our friends/family...and the world to see? Yes, a nice post on how he bought flowers or a unusual sappy comment he made...heck yeah cause it made me feel wonderful and I want to share it. I really find it hard to believe that all your friends on facebook have awful marriages because they post nice things about their partners. Sounds like you need to work on your marriage if ANOTHER persons post about theirs bothers you so much.
