Honestly there dose seem to be a prevailing opinion that no they have to sacrifice happy lives to be heroes. In fact I think someone at marvel said that flat out at one point.
which is BS. Do Police or Firefighters have to sacrifice happy lives to do their job?
Superman seems pretty happy and stable right now. Happily married with a 10 year old son
I think Superman is the exception at least until a writer decides to retcon it or ruin it.
I never liked the whole "readers don't like seeing comic characters in stable relationships" BS the writers try to use as a excuse as to why more heros don't have more relationships. Villains have relationships why would being a hero make it less easy. It's because the writers don't want to do it. I never quite forgave Marvel breaking up Peter Parker and Mary Jane. Starfire and Nightwing had a what 20-25 year relationship in real time and it mostly went nowhere for the longest time.
