Are you divorced? Were your parents divorced?

My parents were divorced when I was 11.  

Each remarried someone else and then divorced again. 

My dad was married twice.  My mom was married 4 times. 

I was extremely careful who I chose to marry because I never wanted to end up divorced and I haven't.  I've been married 30 years now.

Were your parents divorced?  Do you think that influenced your attitude toward marriage?

No I’m not. Yes they are. I don’t think it’s influenced me really but I do know if I ever do get divorced, I hope to be able to coparent with my husband as well as my parents always have. There was never a big disruption to our lives even though I was very young when they split. Everything was always still done together and still is now that they have grandchildren. My dad and his GF come down for all the grandkids parties and often stay in the guest room at my mom and step dad’s house. It was nice then and is nice now not to have to worry about doing two of everything because people can’t get along. So if I were ever in that position, I would definitely take a page out of their book and make it work like they did.

I'm divorced. My parents are still married after 40+ years together. I think it influenced me to stay married longer than I should have.

My parents divorced.  My dad remarried 4 times.  My mom just once.

All of my siblings have been divorced and remarried at least once.
