My parents did not divorce (although they should have). When my mom died, they'd been married 33 years.

I have been married 10 years and am separated from my husband. We will most likely divorce, but haven't taken that last step yet.

I am a child of divorce. I haven't divorced - and don't plan on it. My in-laws are going through a divorce right now and even though the kids are all grown, it is really difficult for them. They had been married 38 years.

My parents did not divorce, although they should have. They have been married 26 years now.
8 years ago he cheated on my Mom with some woman he met in a bar. He felt so guilty he confessed to my Mom. She asked him to leave. He left for about 5 months than came back.
I still haven't forgave him, and probably never will. He used to be my hero, now I can't stand the sight of him.

I am divorced. My parents did not divorce as my father died when I was 17 months old , my mother remarried and left my stepfather several times but they eventually stayed together.

My parents are divorced. They divorced when I was about4, and my sister was about 7. My Mom remarried soon after and has been married since. My Dad hasn't remarried. I'm not married, and never have been. I hope to never get divorced but who knows.

My parents divorced. I think I was 15 when they separated.

They're both MUCH happier now, even though they never appeared particularly unhappy before. They've become more interesting people -- their marriage was holding them both back from pursuing their hobbies/interests. My mom is now in a serious relationship with a very nice man and my dad is happily and purposely single. And I'm really happy for both of them!

My parents have never divorced and I'm am quite sure never will. I'm not married. My mother's parents were divorced. Her father remarried at least a couple times, her mother once. My mother was young when this happened and it was a real tragedy that still upsets me to hear or think about. She didn't have half the childhood she should have had.

My parents divorced when I was nine. My mom walked out on us. It was very hard on me. At the time she was selfish and wasn't thinking about her family. She got remarried only a couple of years later and had another kid. In a way I'm glad she got remarried and had my little sister, but I also wonder what our family would have been like if our family would have never been split apart. When my dad died 3 years ago my mom told me that her and my dad divorcing was a mistake. She still loved him, and he never stopped loving her.

My parents just celebrated their 30th.
I am divorced. Stupid right-after-high-school-marriage. So dumb... Didn't know anything about myself or the person I was marring. He was a jerk and a moron who sufficated me. Engaged after 2 months. We knew eachother for 5 months before getting married. Happily divorced for over 2 years. I never plan on divorcing again, though. I've learned my lesson. REALLY get to know yourself and the other person before walking down the isle.

Parents are still together. 38 years. Husbands parents are still together. 37 years. Married, obviously, and do not ever plan on considering divorce. We've only been married for 2 years but been together about 6. Can't imagine us ever getting to that point.

My parents divorced when I was young (5-6) and it was the right thing to do. My father wasn't a good husband to my mom.

My husbands parents have been together for well over 30 years and I wouldn't expect them to ever get divorced.

I've only been married for a couple years and I don't expect we'd ever get a divorce. I don't think my husband would leave unless I told him to and I don't think I'd leave him. I don't think either of us would do something to 'warrant' a divorce either.

My parents divorced when I was 13. When I was 15, they both remarried other people and have been happy with those people ever since (I am now 39). It was the right thing for them. Now I have Mom and Tom and Dad and Lynne - twice the parents!

I have never been married - read into that what you will
