If I read another comment like

My brother and his wife got married after (insert retarded comment here like, he beat her, they only knew each other 2 weeks) and they have been happily married for 4 years.

I will go nuts! COME ON! 4 or 5 years isnt very long. Anyone can be in a crappy marriage for a few years. Make sure its like 20 years or 25 next time you use a reference.

WEll considering how long 50% of marriages now last, 4 years could be considered a long time.

ITA, up to a point. LOL. I've been married 3 times. My first marriage last a year, my second marriage lasted not quite 2 years. I've been with my hubby now for almost 7 years, we've been married almost 5. He was married before as well, his first marriage lasted 2 years.
For us, 7 years together and 5 years married is a long time. :)

LOL 4 years is when you come to your senses and you are like OH CRAP what was I thinking getting married so young to a fucking idiot! I thought he was cute but now I realize he is a fat loser. Those are 4-6 year thoughts.

No, not at all. LOL. This is my third marriage. My previous reply explains that. :D  I get what you're saying tho... my point was, it's all about a person's frame of reference.

That made me literally Laugh out Loud!!  So true!

I've been married for 9 years, in June, but with him for almost 14... He is the right one for me, and I for him, BUT- we both had horrible relationships/marriages before each other... I truly believe that you have to go through hell to get to heaven, as in, you have to know what it is like to have a shitty relationship to appreciate the good one....
