No, happily not. Parents were and I ain't going down that road. Hubby and I dated/lived together 10 years before tying the knot. Highly recommend it!

I was very happy at the results of this one. I fought tooth an nail to stay with my husband 4 years ago and we are now at 11 years. With the stress of the military, a special needs child, living with elderly and two incomes. God is truly with us.

Not that I would if I could. Shove that in your sanctity of marriage.

Can't get married to the man I love, so can't get divorced

@wedaslaves Thanks. And no I don't. Got a new girl that loves me and our four year old daughter. I threw the cheating whore out and moved on.

No. I have never been divorced.

Atheist. I realize I have broken the sacredness of marriage by marrying outside my 'religion' but don't worry. I turned her away from gods so its okay. =)

Don't forget the population of SOH users isn't necessarily a representative sample of the entire US population.

For those who are not married.... Guys look at her and understand she will change a 1000 times.... Girls look at him and know he will not!!!

The only reason we don't kill our spouse is because we would miss them

Someday, but we are permanently separated. Ugh. Never again. On another note...I'm totally surprised (happily) at these results. I'm under the impression the divorce rate is like 50% or more. Not by this poll.

Cowboy, that is life threatening behavior with the diseases out there. That would be one of the serious exceptions to move on with life. I know we rag you. However, I am sorry to hear this. This is usually their insecurities and issues that drive that dysfunction. I hope you don't blame yourself

Thinker, I have met some young women who have been on the receiving end of that dysfunction. It is not something to play with. This can mess with their heads in ways you can't believe. The one person that you trust your life with and depend on does??? Please speak with others and do something.

Fiat, there probably will be times when your friendship and commitment will have to carry you through. Always choose the nicer friend who can work through issues over the selfish model of perfection. You will be tested and need skills to adapt in a balanced way. Romance shows that they are special

Yep. Ten years I put up with a cheating slut because I wanted it to work. She was my wife after all. Through better and worse right? After she went to California to screw some stranger she met on the Internet I was done.

I felt just as divorced as my dad when my mom moved out. It affects everyone. My family is very close knit, save those in my family who don't want to be.

Welcome to SOH. We like our results skewed and our comments as far from "PC" as possible.

Skewed survey. If you've never been married, or your spouse dies, you've not had a divorce.

Actually my generation just doesn't get married. I had a girl friend for 6 years. She is suing me for 17k. It might as well have been a divorce...

And give away half my stuff? Not a chance. Seriously, I wouldn't have even considered getting married unless I already knew we'd be stuck with each other permanently whether or not we did the show and paperwork.
