Have you ever been divorced?
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. Love. My. Husband.
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.
Nope. Married for 3 years, been together for 7 and have been friends for 16 :) he's my best friend!
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.
I'm 19 soooooo no hah
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. =)
I'm so sorry for what you're going through I know it will get better sometime honey hang in there you and your dad be really close really tight Your mom might be going through a really tough emotional time some woman to that when they get their late 30s or 40s I pray everything gets better for you
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
RJ1969, chicks are crazier than men, IMO. Tech stuff? Not sure what you mean.
No, but my parents were.
Not getting married is the only way to 100% prevent divorce. :)
One only been married 1 time. He had two before me at 27 of course it was all their faults. Been with a bully for nearly 40 tears.
Perhaps my husband's second. That was inWA.
Starry ✋✋I wave my hands in the air for you. I do this in my water aerobic classes rather than clap. Wet hands clapping. To wet. .
Sounds like my ex did she buy him a a motorcycle and take him to Jamaica
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 mean I hope you guys can still stay together without being married.
F@$& that stupid s#!% seriously. I hope it has no affect on your relationship.
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.
I feel bad for that 1% under 21 that had to answer yes. Bad night in Vegas?
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.
See! Don't believe everything you read. 95% of the people I know are happily married like me. For 34 years!
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...
Holy crap, I can't believe this map! Aren't 50% of marriages ending in divorce and a red map!! Either it's full of kids or people who know how to pick 'em!
Married to my one and only 23 yrs. married for life though I occasionally want to kill him.
How does that saying go? Oh yes... "It is better to have loved and lost than live with the psycho for the rest of your life." ;-)
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.
I'm very very very blessed!
Just had my second son with my beautiful wife of 7 years. In my house we don't even speak "the D word"!!
Married for almost 15 years and he's my best friend. Still love him very much and am grateful he's my partner.
That makes me sad.
Praying for peace for you & your daughter. Praying that he will have a change of heart & never do that to another child.
so, chicks are still on the menu? Or, are you into tech....robot stuff?
wow! thinker, I hope the road ahead is positive. mI'm thinking happy thoughts.
Interesting Thanksgiving dinners now, huh?
