Are your parents still married?

Mine are going on 31 years and I'm constantly amazed at how they still act sometimes as if they just started dating. I hope my husband and I can always be like them!

One thing they said that has kept them together this long...having a sense of humor. They're constantly making each other laugh! :)

Have you heard any advice from couple who have been married a long time?

  • My parents got divorced when I was a toddler. My Dad has been married and divorced another 3 times since; my mom has been married for 18 years but she hates her husband.

  • My mother divorced my abusive father when I was 3. When I was five she remarried and they are still together. He is my dad and always will be. They have been married 28 years now.

    Now my inlaws have been married 36 years. They are best friends and I am sure that is why they are still together.

    It sounds to me as if it's a good thing they previously got divorced if they later found someone to last 32 years with, lol. Couples that have been together for so long are so cute to me...and have a lot to teach, I think. :)

  • Another piece of advice, which sounds kind of funny, but I think is true, is...

    I once asked my mom, "Mom, what if I get bored with one person?", and she told me, "Honey, trust me...you will eventually get bored at times with anyone you're with. It's about finding that person you want to be bored WITH", lol! She also told me that the passion and excitement will eventually fade some, but that's where the true love and friendship comes in.
