Catherine and her relationships with Edgar and Heathcliff

In Wuthering Heights, how does Catherine’s marriage to Edgar compare with her relationship with Heathcliff? Catherine says that she can’t marry Heathcliff because it would be degrading, but is that worse than the unhappiness she feels married to Edgar? Do you think that if Catherine and Heathcliff had been able to marry in life, that they would have lived “happily ever after” or as least, contentedly? Why or why not?
