    Fiance parents are together. My mom divorced my bio father when I was 5 and then remarried. My mom passed away 12 years ago, so my stepfather has been alone ever since then.

    I forgot to add. My mother was a clean freak, so those are my learned behaviors. My Fiance, on the other hand, was looked after and didn’t have to do anything himself, so we struggle with him not picking up after himself sometimes, but we have both learned to compromise, so over the years of being together, it has gotten much better.

    My parents are divorced (since I was 5) and fi’s parents are still together.  When we announced our engagement they were surprised because they “didn’t think I would want to get married” and later explained it was since I came from a “broken family” they thought I would be afraid of that kind of committment.  That’s the only weird thing that has come out of our differences.

    both are parents are still married, but i dont consider mine to be happily married, so we still had different experiences growing up. i am hoping our marriage to be more like his parents – mutual trust and respect.  i think part of how i got such an amazingly wonderful man is because his parents relationship were good role models.

    in terms of chores, we are both pretty good too. nothing to fight about. i think i am more lazy and he does more, but so far he doesn’t seem to mind!  right now i am working more than him, so i keep saying when he is working the same, i will be more productive at home!

    This is an interesting question.  Actually, when my Fiance and I met with our photographer for the first time, she asked about our parents and when she found out we both had parents that were still married, she was shocked! She said she hadn’t seen a couple whose parents were both still married in years.  So I do wonder how many bees have married or divorced parents.

    @MsBrooklynA: Both of our parents are divorced and neither of us have any contact with our biological fathers. FI’s mom re-married about 14 years ago and he refers to his step-father as his dad. My mom has been with her boyfriend for more than 10 years and while they will probably never get married (my mothers first marriage with my father scarred her for life) he IS my dad, regardless of if he contributed to the making of me or not.

    My parents are divorced and both re-married to other people.

    My FI’s parents are still married.  His father is not his biological father, however, his mother never married his bio father.  They are both the only marriage they’ve had though and still going strong 18 years later.

    I don’t have a relationship with my father, so it’s definitely formed my beliefs of having a great potential father in the man I marry.  I am certain my FI’s going to be a wonderful dad some day.

    I voted that both sets of parents are together, but actually, by fiance’s father passed away seven years ago. 🙁 His parents were married when he passed away.

    Both our parents are married and for me, seeing mine go through their very rough patches and come out still together and still in love is what inspires me to make sure that no matter what, my marriage will work. My mother decided very early on that she was only going to marry once so she had better make sure she was marrying the right person.

    @UpstateCait:  That’s really insteresting to think about.  On my father’s side, my grandparents are divorved, but on my mother’s side they aren’t.  It’s funny though, once my younger sister turned 21 without having a baby, everyone breathed a sigh of relief…We were the first generation to not have a child before the age of 21!

    @MsBrooklynA:

    I don’t really have a close relationship with my stepfather, and I rarely see my bio father, and I am an older bride, so I am having my youngest son walk me down the aisle. I was previously married to my children’s father, and I beleived completely in staying together for better or worse, but he liked to play the single life, so we ended up getting a divorce after my mom passed away. She loved him more than she loved me, so trying to make her happy I stayed with him for much longer than I should have. I have finally found the man of my dreams, and after being together for just over 10 years, I finally said yes to getting married. My first marriage was abusive both emotionally and physically, so from that aspect I was very scarred. My kids actually thanked me for finally divorcing him.
