Are your parents divorced? If so, how old were you when they got divorced? Did it effect how you feel about marriage?

No.  My father died when I was 9 1/2 years old.  My mother remarried to my stepfather when I was 15 and I've been spoiled rotton.  They will celebrate 16 years of marriage at the beginning of next month.

My parents did not have a great marriage though, my dad was an alcoholic and was not a very good husband.  They would have gotten divorced if my father had lived.  He actually was a great dad,despite being an alcoholic, but like I said,  he was a very bad husband.

I knew my father loved me, but he had hang ups.  My parents marriage never colored how I viewd marriage because I always looked at my grandparents (on both sides) marriage on how they were supposed to work and they were both great examples.  I hope to also experience 50+ years of happy marriage like them.

 No...but they should have been.  Their marriage did affect the way I view marriage.  It gave me an insight as to what not to do.

They were never technically divorced but my dad left when I was almost 14 y/o and wasn't part of our lives in any way from that point on. He passed away 11 years ago.

I never planned to get married, maybe that was part of it, but I met and married my husband 19 years ago.

My parents have been divorced since I was a baby.  My dad has been married and divorced many of times since then.  I vowed to not be married as many times as he was.
