The recipe for a good life and marriage is taqwa. Desires does not go away by marriage. Marriage give permission (halal way) for intimacy. The fitnah in the world will still be there. Desires need to be tamed by increasing godconsciousness (taqwa). If both husband and wife work together to attain and maintain a sound taqwa together, than Allah will help the marriage survive through every difficulty. Ya Allah, grant us taqwa in our life all the time. Aamen. Accept this for all ummati til the end of time. Aamen.
