married for ten years...............what are the chances?ETA

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

how many of you were married for ten years or more and ended up divorced? why?

ETA...my 18 year old sister asked me yesterday if me and dh were going to go the distance since everyone she knows is divorced. i simply answered yes. we are committed to our marriage and making it work. we married young but always make our marriage a priority. just thought i would give a little background on why the post was made. we have been married longer than anyone in our families.

My ex and I were married for 15 years, divorced now for 7 years. We divorced because he carried on a year long relationship with a woman who would ultimtely become wife #2. They divorced after 2.5 years because she began an affair with his boss.

I did. we were married for over 10 yrs and I left him 2008 bc he was to controlling from beginning and our marriage was basically set up,I didn't really know nothing about him besides that he comes from a good family and the longer I was with him the better I got to know him and didn't like him.But I had kids with him and try to make it work but 2 years before I left him, he started showing up at my job in the parking lot and had everyone at work tell me yup you dh again driving around and he would leave work earlier so he can follow me from work to see where I was going and I wasn't going anywhere after work besides stopping at my moms house and he had a problem with that. A lot of shit happened before I left that drove me to just pack my shit and leave so lol

I have been married twice the first was for almost 15 years and Im currently almost 2 years into marriage #2. This marriage is different than the first. We are both committed to our promise to stay with each other.

I was married for 10 years and got divorced.

My MIL was married for 20 years. Around her 10th anniversary she started telling people for her 20th she was going to give herself a divorce. She did.

 I was married for 13  years  and  finally  had enough.   Why  because   he  cheated... he was  an abusive alcoholic  and I finally  decided   that  when I got  very  old  I would rather  trust   aides in a nursing  home  than  care by him.

Married 14 years to my first husband. I've been married for almost ten years this time around. 

Divorced first husband because of his Alcoholism. If would have even tried I would have stayed.

I won't divorce my husband now. The truth is, I've never loved anyone like I love him.
