How Long Have You Been Married?

Good Monday Morning and welcome to a new week!

Yesterday was my parents 40th anniversary. Although we were not able to celebrate with them in Texas, we were able to face time with them.

In a time when divorce rates are so high, I think it is awesome that they have been happily married for so long. Especially since my mother was briefly married to my biological father before.

It had me thinking about my own life. I was married to my ex-husband for 10 years, not all of it happy, obviously. ;)
I have been very happily married to my husband 9 years this March but we have been together for 14.5.

Will be married 3 years to my husband in July. Our relationship is the longest I have ever had. 8 year in November. What is my favorite thing about my husband is that he cares about his family.

I feel like the "old lady" now..lol 

Been together almost 24 years and will celebrate 20 years of marriage this year. We've been together since we were 16.

My husband and I have been married for 26 years. We're both very committed to our marriage. My parents divorced after 25 years of marriage, and his parents divorced after 33 years of marriage. Both of our families pretty much disolved after our parents divorces. Because of what we saw happen with our parents marriages, we decided very early on that we would work hard ot keep our family in tact. 

If that makes it sound like we're just staying together for the kids, that couldn't be further from the truth. I'm madly in love with my husband, even more than the day we married. Part of keeping our marriage together is keeping the magic in the relationship.

I was in a 10 year relationship a lot of ups and downs. It ended because I had enough of family drama.

That is the longest,

I have been married to dh for 26 years.  That is the longest relationship I've been in.  Hmm, my favorite thing about my partner is that he is fun to be around & very intelligent.  We share alot of the same interests. We are both very comitted to our family & we love each other & our kids.  They rock our world!! Yes, we sometimes finish each other's sentences, lol.  I will add, now that we are a lil older, he is a lil grumpy @ times.....oh the drama rama somedays, lol, that part I could do without.

Dh and I will be married 10 years this July. Our relationship is the longest one for both of us:-) My favorite thing about dh is that he puts family and fun first. There is always laughter in our house, and no matter how bad of a day he has or how tired he is he leaves it at the front door and lets the kids drag him to play, read or talk.
