You can vote for both! Unless they were both the same age.
Now I know that marrying young does not guarantee divorce at all, but fools do rush in! If you’re interested in sharing, I’d be interested in hearing.
** sorry for going out of order! Left it out and didn’t want to skew the results.

I don’t know the age of my mom’s first marriage (I think she was around 28-29ish possibly?) but when my parents got married my mom was 34, just shy of 35, and my dad was 31. They separated after just under 20 years.

My parents aren’t technically divorced (bio dad STILL won’t sign the papers) but they’ve been seperated for 16 years. They were married when my mom was 24 and my dad was… 28 maybe? I don’t know his exact age.
Their seperation had nothing to do with age. My dad was an alcoholic and my mom didn’t want me around that shit.

My mom was 18 when she got married the first time I think and it only lasted a couple years and then I think around 24 the second time( to my dad), and they have now been separated for about 11 years

They were early 20’s & married before my mom had me at 22. I was 16 when they divorced. My dad was already dating his 2nd wife who was 24 at the time. Yeah, just peachy.
They were married when she was like 28 or 29… my dad was 40s. My little brother was 9 when they divorced last year.
See… you can be stupid at any age when it comes to marriage lol.

My parents met and dated in high school and got married at 18. It does make me bias against young brides.

@UpstateCait: Oh, I’m sorry. I find that interesting and a little bit confusing. The 24/28 situation sounds old enough to me that if one was alcoholic, it would be apparent by that point already. I (clearly) know nothing about alcoholism. Like you said, must have nothing to do with age. Sorry again if this is offensive somehow, thought it was worth a response.
@deetroitwhat: For sure!

My parents had a bit of an age gap, but my mom was 19 and dad was 25 when they married. They had been dating for several years…yes, with approval of their parents as they went to the same church growing up.
Age didn’t have anything to do with their divorce. There was a circumstance that I think no marriage would have stuck through, and no it wasn’t cheating. I’m not disclosing their personal business on the internet though. They stayed married for 10 years.

My parents were married at 20 (they’re the same age) and had me at 21. They divorced 10 years later because my dad is gay. I think they would still be married today if things were different. They are best friends and raised my sisters and I very much together. 🙂

My parents got married at 31 and 36, no prior kids. Divorced 20 years later. Don’t speak now. Being so independent and established before their marriage is why they aren’t together anymore. No question. It’s not like that for everyone, but that’s what I saw growing up.

My parents were 28 and 27 when they got married. They are going through a divorce now after being married for over 30 years.
