My parents were (are) high school Sweethearts…
Eloped at the ages of 18 and 19… I was born when they were in their 20s and they are still strong and solid to this day!
They’ve been an incredible example as to what a marriage should look like, and I’m so thankful that I’ve gotten to have that example so I have a good experience to walk into my own marriage with.
All by God’s grace of course!

My mom was married twice, had 3 sons with the second one, divorced him and married my dad. Divorced when I was about 4-5, she married scumbag, divorced him, then she and dad got back together. They were together 31 years until she died in ’08.
His parents divorced when he was small, he hasn’t seen his dad since he was in his teens. His mom lives about 3 miles from us and let’s just say it may as well be 3 million.

My parents have been married for 25 years. They met at 12 and started dating at 17. My SO and I have been together since we were 12, and will be getting married at the same age as my parents at their wedding 🙂
His parents are still together as well. Actually, there is no divorce in our families at all except for his uncle!

My parents married before I was born and are still together after 25-26 years but things are complicated =(
His parents divorced when he was about 13… Everyone on his dad’s side has been divorced at least once except one uncle!

I’m really lucky, my parents have a wonderful marriage that has always been my model for a loving and stable relationship.
My SO’s late parents eloped to another country when they were expecting him. Then they HID IT from their kids their entire lives! For some reason nobody thought to ask them where their wedding photos were, I guess – very weird family story. However it turned out fine, they had a happy marriage.

Very happily married for 31 years. I’ve never seen a couple work better than they do. My in laws are divorced, thank god, they worked so badly together that my husband was thrilled when they divorced when he was 12.

Wowww, very interesting.
Although they didn’t seem to workout well together, do you ultimately think that they were meant to be together?

My parents were married for 38 years and then my dad died. He was only 58. That was last year.
They had a rotten marriage. My mom should have left him when I was 4 months old, but she stayed and had 2 more kids and got even more stuck. Financial, emotional abuse. Yet my mom misses him terribly and would take back all that pain and heartache.

Nope, never married each other. My dad is on his 3rd marriage & I believe that’s because she got knocked up. So my youngest brother is a few months younger than my only child, weird and sometimes aggravates me in a way.
My mother never married, I believe she is to argumentative & stubborn overall, but I still hope that someday she will meet a man who can appreciate her many wonderful qualities and make her happy.
We all want to love and be loved.

I raise my hand…yes, I am a “bastard” as are all my siblings…my mother had two very long, very unmarried relationships in her life…begining with my father, which resulted in me and my two siblings….they were together for 12 years (might want to deduct the last few years because I’m pretty sure they just lived under the same room and their relationship wasn’t exactly defacto). I’m not clear on how long they were together before my mother got pregnant with me (her eldest), if I was planned, how my father reacted…and I don’t recall them ever being happy together, mostly they just tolerated one another.
Then my mother met my “step father”…and they have been living together for about 18 years and 5 months ..and they have an 18 year old together, you do the math. =)
To all those women who think marriage doesn’t matter…well, my mothers is not happy, not in the slightest.

I selected married and divorced, but you should probably include married and separated. My parents have been married for 32 years, separated for 14.
