A Streetcar Named Desire

From the first few pages, how might we categorize Stanley and Stella's relationship? Are they happy? What do they like about one another?

The play is called "A Streetcar Named Desire" by Tennessee Williams

Stanley and Stella are certainly in love. She's the perfect wife, but she also has some fire in her. Stanley is definitely the head of the household, but Stella knows her way around her husband. He confronts things head on; he's lloud and full of bluster. Stella has a calmer approach, and when she doesn't particularly like the situation, she removes herself and diffuses it.
