Who here has parents who are still married?

And had a happy marriage? Mine are and they are going on 40 years this July. I think it is just wonderful. I wish I could have done this for my own kids but alas...I couldn't...just wondering how many come from unbroken homes? I feel sad that this seems less the norm....

  • My parents have been together 40 years Dec 28th, 2008. They did a LOT of talking and communicating before getting married. Deciding on how many kids to have, how they were gonna raise us and everything. (Church and all) They made a committment and it hasn't been easy but they still love each other to peices......My dad calls my mom 'Hot Lips' thats her Name on his phone...lol. We kids love it....
