My parents have been married for over 30 years. Same for DH's parents. All of our grandparents were married for 50+ years. Is it really so strange? No one can believe that we both come from homes where no one divorces. We're not from extremely religious stock that doesn't believe in divorce, but it just doesn't happen that often in our families. DH and I did separate once for about 6 months, but it was to give ourselves space and work out our problems. Do you think people give up on marriage too easily?
