  • I wouldn't say my home growing up was broken, I never remember my parents being together. They split when I was a baby but both were very much a huge part of me growing up and still today..

    My DH and I will celebrate 19 years of marriage in Jan..

  • My parents divorced when I was about 5 but a year later my mom went back to him and they lived together until I was 10 when my mom finally left him taking us kids with her. But since she had health issues we wound up being raised by my grandmother, which had its own issues. So I'd say my home was broken.
    I'm not sure you'd say my relationship is a long one. My hubs and I have been together since March of '05 though we just barely celebrated our four year wedding anniversary on the 4th.

  • My parents were married for 5 years and divorced when I was three. Neither remarried, although my mom was in a relationship with a man for 13 years so I considered him my step-dad. They split up 2 years ago. I've been married for almost 6 years so far.

  • im from a broken home, fostered since i was 5years old. was with my first boyfriend from 16 til i was 21, the only reason we split is cos i wanted to explore the world and find out who i am on my own before i settled down. i just got married this year, so we will see how lang it lasts. i have a good feeling, because i know what i want in a guy and hes everything i could ask for and more, plus because i never had a proper, stable home i always wanted it and i have found it here with him :)

  • My parents were married but it was like a broken home. My dad spent more time in bars drinking his check away then being a father and a husband.
