Most marriages I've known weren't happy (sad to say) with both partners in free society and not facing any great hardships, so I think that happiness is not dependent on this or that specific situation. It is found in almost continuous striving for a state of mind and heart which seeks acceptance of every moment exactly as it is. It's the hardest thing in the world for human beings, who, I think, are by nature restless, always wanting more, or different, or 'better' (that's usually arbitrarily defined).

One has to ask oneself what exactly is happiness. For me, happiness is finding ways to love my family, wherever they may be. There is no greater joy than that found in a novel expression of love, care, concern, support and encouragement. I do this while he's incarcerated, and I'd do this if he were free and by my side.
