Considering my parents are still married, they beat me by a long shot.  We are almost to the 25 year mark, they are about to hit 47 years.

My In-laws divorced when my DH was 3 years old, not sure how long they were married, neither ever remarried.  MIL is extremely happy that we have remained married as DH is the only one of her 5 children to remain married.

Shorter because I didn't get married until I was 39. My parents and in-laws were married until death but don't know how many years. I would say we have a happier marriage than parents or in-laws.

Mine and dh's parents are deceased.  They've been married all their living life to each other.  Dh and I are married 26 yrs.  We have no thoughts of divorce.

My parents got divorced, but were married for 45 yrs., believe.... they are better friends now. My dad did remarry to the woman he was cheating with she is a family friend that I have known all my life (her husband died from throat cancer). My mom never remarried and is very happy being by herself, she has my older brother living near so she can spoil his children. She has traveled extensively, and is just enjoying life.

My husband's folks I have no clue and he doesn't remember, they are deceased.

We will be celebrating 25 yrs. in April, so my parents marriage beats us....however we will never divorce, because we can't be without each other for more than a week... LOL
