    The conclusions come from a study of 2,015 Germans who were followed over eight years.

    The results showed that, on average, people’s happiness peaked near their marriage, then faded away after a year or two.

    And introverted men shouldn't get married at all.

    • Introverted women and extraverted men fared the best in the long-term.
    • Indeed, introverted men were less satisfied with life after getting married than those who never married.

    Wife and I are very different people.

    She is one way and I am the opposite, but somewhere in the middle we make sense

    Remember that time in Puerto Rico we picked up those 2, I guess they were prostitutes, but I don't remember paying

    The really unfortunate thing is that most women don't understand that we are really interested in only one thing. Give us that and we are happy.

    Is he an introvert? What about you?

    What are the best parts of your marriage?

    Neither of us are introverts.
    We are compatible. On the same page about almost everything.
    We fight occasionally like most couples do, but we get over it quickly.
    He's my boo, I adore him.

    Why get married?

    I feel the need to disappoint different women sexually. Not the same one over and over.
