    @bunnyharriet:  My parents were married for almost 25 years before my father passed away. Everyone said they wouldn’t make it 6 months. But they were so in love. My father has been gone for almost 7 years and my mom still wears her wedding ring.

    My parents are happily married and will be celebrating their 29th in August 🙂

    They met at their best friends’ wedding- he was the best man and she was the maid of honor. At 28 and 29, they were on the older side (for the times) when they got married in 1984.

    Prior to marrying my Mom, Dad was married, had 4 kids.  Divorced her due to mental health issues.  Before anyone gets bitchy about it, this was in the late 50s/early 60s when they didn’t HAVE any good treatments.  They gave her some kind of crazy combo of barbituates and amphetamines, she went off the deep end and went after Dad with a straight razor.  She was institutionalized, and they divorced.  He met my Mom a few years later, they got married and had me a few years later.  Later in life for him, kinda late for her (he was 50 and she was 38 when they had me).  35 years later, still married and happy.

    @bunnyharriet:  My parents got married young, and are still married, 41 years later. They have problems but I guess inertia (and love) keeps them together.

    My parents were married when my mom was about 3 months pregnant with me – YES, I am the reason they got married. Threy divorced when I was about 11, but weren’t very happy for a while before that.

    My parents were married for 12 years, together for 20 total. They divorced when I was 7…21 years ago lol. My dad has been remarried twice, wife #2 for 14 years before they divorced, wife #3 for 6 years and they’re still married.

    My bf’s parents were together for 26 years, married for 22 before they divorced. His dad’s been remarried for about 12 years.

    Neither of our mother’s have remarried.

    My parents have been together 35 years, married for 34, and are still happy and in love! They met at a disco/club when my mum went out with her sister, who was dating my dad’s best friend. My aunt says that when they went home that night, my mum told her she’d just met the man she would marry one day – and she did!

    My parents met at 18, separated, got back together, married, separated, got back together, had me, separated, got back together, had my brother, separated, got back together, divorced, got back together, remarried, had my sister, divorced.

    Altogether they were probably married 20 years. All of them but about two were a mess.

    My mom hasn’t dated (though she’s considering it, after 10 years!) and my dad has been married a while, I think, to a woman he married after 10 weeks.

    Husband’s parents have been married almost 40 years, I think. Seem pretty happy, too.

    My parents got divorced after 10 years of marriage. They both got remarried… my dad and stepmom have gotten divorced since then, but my mom and stepdad are still happily married.
