Still married.  Married in 1969.  Absolutely miserable – should have divorced decades ago.

FI’s parents married in 1960.  They are adorable together.  Love being around them.

Ha.  My mom’s been married 4 times, three of which happened in one decade- the 90s when I needed a mum :/ (I was 6-16)

Still married, and still madly in love, as are FI’s parents.  I aspire to be like them in 30+ years.

Mine are married for 31 years.  My husband’s parents were both previously married, had different kids, then married each other and had my husband.  They’ve been married for around 32 years I think.

My parents are still together, but they shouldn’t be.  It hasn’t given me a negative view on marriage.  I viewed their marriage as an example of what not to do.

My fiance’s parents are still married and doing okay, though I don’t think they’re madly in love with each other or anything.  They love and appreciate each other, but it’s not the kissy/full of chemistry kind of love.  

My fiance and I aspire to have a better marriage than all of them…no abuse, communicate in healthy ways, stay in love, maintain the chemistry, etc.

My parents are still happily married after 34 years.  If I’m half as happy in my first year of marriage as they still are in their 34th, I will consider myself a very lucky person.  FI’s parents are also still married after something like 35 or 36 years.

My parents have been married 41 years now. They have split up twice (one when my oldest siblings were young and then when my sister and I were young) but never divorced. THey are currently raising my brother’s son and he’s disrespectful to my dad, several times he has said for my mom to choose and she doesnt pick my dad. I’m honestly surprised they’re still together.

His mom and dad divorced before he was born but stayed together til he was 5 yrs old (i think), his dad remarried when he was 12 yrs old (not sure about his mom, they’re not close) and then passed away in 2008 because of his second wife. I’m not too fond of the step mom at all but she’s still around somewhat.

@GroovyHippieChick:  same here. All of us kids are full grown with kids of our own and they are still married and miserable. My dad has some pretty major problems both physically and mentally so my mom will never leave him. She always said she made those vows and intended to keep them no matter how much she hated my dad.

 

In response to the other part of OP’s question.. Because of how miserable my parents are I always vowed I would NEVER get married.. I knew Fiance was the one I would spend forever with since we met 4 years ago, he’s the only person I considered actually being married to, and only admitted to that fact a little less than a year ago, when i discovered what an amazing father he is, something my dad never really was. Sure, in other ways my dad was great but being a supportive father figure, not so much. He seemed to put himself first always, even when he didn’t know it. But when we had our little girl and I saw how proud and happy Fiance was to have her in his life and how amazing he has been with her for the last 7 months. I will NEVER leave his side. I cannot  wait to be Mrs. Puckett!!

 

FI’s parents are still married and very happy!

My parents have been married just about 30 years. Both sets of my grandparents have been married 50+. I’ve had great role models. My fiance’s parents have also been married almost 30 years.

Divorced, as are FI’s parents. All are remarried. FI’s mum has been married 3 times actually, the first time she was married was before she was with FI’s dad! Doesn’t affect my view on marriage, aside to show that marriage doesn’t have to be forever I suppose!
