    My parents have been married for 33 years–34 this coming April. They are proof that marriages are NOT easy and not eternally blissful, but with communication and open communication that anything can be worked through. It has certainly helped me in my relationship. My mother always says that marriage is not easy, it is a living, breathing organism and if you ignore it, it wilts and dies.

    I had to mark “other”. My parents were married until my father passed away. My mother never dated again, and remains unmarried and unattached today. DH’s parents were married until his mother passed away. A marriage doesn’t only end in divorce, and sometimes one partner outlives the other by many, many years.

    My parents have been married for 39 years!  One thing that they have taught me is that if my husband and me have an issue, and we have not been able to work through it after a month or so, go to counseling!  It helps to get a third party’s perspective.

    @bunnyharriet:  My parents just one day decided to get married, they went to the Justice of Peace and said their I do’s. They didnt have a wedding or anything like that. They slpit up when I was 6 or so, maybe 7 but their divorce wasnt final until 1998 (I was 8 years old) They were married for 10 years.

    My mum married that man when I was six months old. Had she not been in a fatal car accident in 2005, she would have divorced him the next year.

    My parents have been married for 33 years, after only a year of dating! My dad had just turned 23 and my mom was 25. They waited 5 years to have their first child.

    My parents split up when I was 12 and finalized the divorce when I was 16. I think they were together total (before the split) for 14 years.

    My parents were married 3 months after engagement.  They have been married, very happily, for 35 years now.  One of my absolute favorite things is seeing how much they still enjoy being together after all these years.  My dad still holds my mom’s hand when they are in the car, kisses her for no reason after dinner, and loves to bring her little surprises.  They started life together with almost nothing materially, but never let that drive a wedge between them.  I know without a doubt that they are truly best friends.
