Who has (real) marble countertops and doesn't regret it?

We are working on some final material decisions for a kitchen renovation, and know we want a marble-looking countertop. There are a number of engineered / quartz options with a marble look and most people, including our kitchen design consultant / cabinet supplier, but there is just something stunning about the look of real marble.

That said, there are so many stories of people upset about the stains and etching they see on real marble countertops. And I get it - we put in a butcher block counter around an undercount kitchen sink a while ago, thinking if we sealed it well, it would be ok, but now regret that decision. Too hard to keep clean and dry, too much water damage.

We also have two kids - not slobs, but kids - and my partner, honestly, is not as tidy or fastidious about kitchen cleaning as I am. And we have a dog, but they don't really interact with the kitchen counters much. We like to cook and will use the kitchen, it's a functional working space, not a showpiece.

It's easy to find stories of people who regret the decision and reasons not to go with real marble. But I wanted to see if there are folks out there who have lived with marble for a while - at least a year, preferably more - who are still happy with the choice.

If that's you, I'd love to hear more about what level of care / maintenance you engage in, how you use your kitchen, whether you have kids, etc., and I'd especially love to see photos of your pretty (or attractively patina'd) installed marble countertops.

Edited to add: I am very specifically looking for responses from people who have lived with Mable countertops, and especially those who have lived with them and would install them again. If you have lived with them and would not install them again, I'm also interested in your story. Ideally, I'd prefer if all responses were from folks talking about their actual experience living with marble countertops.

Drill faucet hole in marble countertop on seam?

Need to add a faucet hole on my marble countertop. Where the hole goes is where the two pieces of marble meet. Any problem drilling the hole on this seam? Don’t want to risk cracking the pieces.

Marble countertops hollow vs solid

We’re building a house and upon construction visit we saw that the upgraded (highest tier) marble countertop is half the thickness in the middle than the edges and is set on plywood. Is this the new thing now with new construction homes, has it been like this and they just seal the bottom to make it look like one solid slab? I have not encountered this type of countertop. I usually see/ feel a solid slab countertops TIA for any input!

Advise on new knobs and other small changes we can make in our kitchen. Changing cabinets/countertops is not an option. We have already: painted the kitchen/nook, replaced all of the white appliances with stainless steel, and are adding marble backsplash as pictured. reddit.com/gallery/o1jz0g

Marble tile and countertop refinishing recommendations?

I moved into a new condo, and the previous owner did not do a good job maintaining the marble countertop and floor in the bathroom. There are urine stains near the toilet, and some rust stains on the countertop. Does anyone have any recommendations for repairing this, and an approximate cost?

Can I smooth down this chipped marble countertop edge myself?

Purchased this Carrara marble countertop secondhand, and I’m wondering if I can smooth down this damaged edge myself before re-sealing. There are multiple little chips and dings and rough areas, not just one chip or place to fix...like it saw a lot of contact/abuse on that edge in its prior life. https://imgur.com/a/gyVxpeq/

Can I fix this, or do I need to call someone?
