    My dad passed away a few years ago. But my parents were very happily married. DH’s parents split up a few years after he was born.

    I also think it’s great that people stay together that long. It’s a shame divorce is so common nowadays

    My parents are divorced and my husband’s were never married.  I do wish we had healthier examples but I think that both of us so far have come out of the situations more so knowing what not to do instead of following in their footsteps.

    Both dh and my parents have been most of the time happily married for 30+ years.  Someone who had that similarity in their background was actually one of the things I was really hoping to find in a husband. Not that I don’t think people with divorced parents can’t make great husbands/wives…

    My parents divorced when I was 2. My dad remarried about 22 years ago. He and my step mom are still together. My mom has never remarried.

    FI’s parents are divorced. His father remarried about 25 years ago. He and FSMIL are still together. FI’s mother has remarried and divorced another 3 or 4 times. She has been with her current boyfriend for maybe 5 or 6 years. They are very comitted to each other but have no intention on getting married, which is probably good. I love her but clearly, marriage isn’t her thing!

    Both are married, mine happily, his mostly happily, Father-In-Law can be a jerk and is heavy on the machismo sometimes and Mother-In-Law takes the brunt of it.

    Both of our parents are divorced (well, kinda. My parents have been seperated for 16 years but my dad still won’t sign the papers). DH’s mother is remarried to the man that he’s considered his father since he was a tween and my mom is currently single. She was with her ex boyfriend for more than 10 years before they split only a few months ago. I always considered her ex to be my dad. Not so much anymore.

    I voted for both being married. DH’s parents are still married, my mom and dad were married up until his death in 2010.

    It has been wonderful seeing two couples that stayed married and viewed marriage as a true committment. Darling Husband and I do not believe in divorce, and our parents have set wonderful examples 🙂

    i think having good examples is great, and i’m very glad mine are still happily married. but i know a couple who have been extremely happily married for over 50 years, and both their children are divorced.

    SO’s parents are divorced, and nearly all the men in his family have had divorces. it used to scare him of commitment, but now he’s just extra determined to make his marriage the one that sticks.

    Mine have been divorced for 17 years, after 12 years of marriage, and my dad has been with my stepmom for 13 years.  My in-laws have been married probably about 35 years.  I know they separated briefly after all the kids were out of the house but reconciled.

    I just have to comment, both mine and FI’s parents are divorced (acutally FI’s parents are each on their 4th marriages!). I voted and was SO happy to see that the majority of parents are still married 🙂 It just makes me happy to see since I dont have that at all over here.

    Both were married until Future Mother-In-Law passed away this spring.

    Both are married. How nice to see the majority of Bees so far saying that both sets are married!
