Well, first off, as I like to do, I would want to clarify what you mean by both “every thing” and “go down hill”.
I will base my answer on what I presume you to mean, but I would like to point out that the question lends itself to vast interpretation.
(And, purely based on the phrase “every thing”, the answer is obviously a unilateral “No.” It would be nearly impossible for there to be a “yes” answer to that.)
By “go down hill”, I surmise that you mean “lose the quality that makes a thing interesting.”
That said, let’s examine what qualities specifically define a relationship, and whether or not those are different before and after marriage:
Attraction – As people get older, some people may find that what they find physically attractive may not match the reality of their current bodies. Many, however, may find that their tastes alter with their age.
Intimacy – Within around 18 months after a relationship begins, the initial flush of intimacy often changes to a different kind of “love” – whether married or not. This is something that both partners can mutually agree to work on, however.
Common Interests – The longer you are in a relationship, the more likely you are to develop individual interests to complement your shared ones.
Friendship – The longer you know someone, married or not, the more memories you have with them. This tends to strengthen a friendship.
Supportiveness – This goes hand-in-hand with friendship. The stronger that bond, the more supportive you can be.
Communication – In a healthy relationship, effective communication gets better and easier the more you know the person.
Trust – The better you know someone, the more you can trust them.
Fidelity – The more committed you are to someone, the better your communication, support, trust, friendship, etc, the more likely you are to be faithful to them.
So, as far as I can tell – the longer the marriage, the better it gets.
