My hubby has heard that you have to be married for ten years before you can adopt a child, but we're kind of conflicting on this. Or maybe some kind of marriage stability clause? Could that just be a state law? Any thoughts?

I have never heard of ten years. I know in my state we did have to be married for at least a year. The birthparents had a right to know how long we had been married. We also had to answer if we ever had marriage difficulties or if we had ever seen a marriage counselor. They asked a lot of detailed questions of both of us on our marriage. I am presuming to make sure we were a solid, steady, and supportive couple.
