By the end of ROTJ, Han had become pretty domesticated. He could easily become similar to Lando in ESB while staying with Leia: responsible and diplomatic while using his charm to succeed in some larger role in the government.
We saw him for 5 minutes at the end of a battle. Everything was still VERY exciting regardless of him being on the right side of the law. I would hardly call this domesticated.
Let him be married and up to his neck in diplomacy for ten years and we'll see how happy he is with domestication. He's going to get bored and she's going to get irritated with his boredom.
