5+ years??? Man, you're still on your honeymoon! I didn't have my first
argument til year 8 or 9. Incompatibilities and resentments don't grow
overnight - be patient, man, and give it some time. One of these days you'll
be tired and distracted ("oh my god, is the barclaya longifolia flowering?")
and miss your first commercial kiss, or you'll resent her spending all of
her vacations traveling to see Dr. Phil live, or there will be a big
disagreement over buying a 6-foot tank vs. a 6-foot TV, and then <<BOOM>>,
before you know it you're sleeping on the couch next to the tank and she's
writing Dr. Phil flirty emails.

It can happen.
