Are your parents divorced? If so, how old were you when they got divorced? Did it effect how you feel about marriage?
No, they've been married for 39 years!
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.
nope, just celebrated 50 years. and DH's will celebrate 45 in a few months.
Nope, my parents were married for 48 years when my mom passed away.
** It's 5 O'clock Somewhere **
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.
