First Marriages

Anyone in a marriage where you and your spouse have only been married to each other? You don't have children from any other relationship. How long have you been married?

DH and I have been married 15 years. We have 2 children. We are very happy and I don't see that changing. We look forward to growing old together. I can't imagine my life without him. 

I feel that this is somewhat rare on this board.

DH and I have been married 7 years, first marriage for both of us, one child together and none with other people. I can’t speak for all of CM, but in our social circle, that’s the common arrangement by and large.

It isn't where I live. My kids are always talking about how different they are because we aren't divorced and they don't have to go back and forth between houses like their friends.

That’s unfortunate. Although it also sounds like we are younger than you, so it’s possible we will encounter more divorce and split families as we get older.

Yes. 17 years - I figured it’s more common than the other way around though.

Yes.

Hubby and I have only been married to each other and all three of our kids were created by us :)

We've been together for 16+ years.
