    • How many wars ago was that?

    • Small scale conflicts are normal in my house as well. Mum and dad disagree on many points almost everyday. When my father is angry, my mum still cooks for him. In such as situation, he goes early to bed without any food. But when he is hungry in the night, he enters the kitchen clandestinely and fill his belly with whatever mum cooked. In the morning, mum would ask him in front of all of us - some one seems to have eaten the food? my dad is like :D :D and everybody in the family then bursts into laughter. It happens every month or two.

    • Lol that's a lot of wars

  • 70% of couples who marry stay married. The 30% who don't, usually marry and divorce repeatedly throughout their lives. So the stats can get skewered pretty quickly.

    What's of more concern are those who never marry, or have views on marriage keeping them from getting married that are warped to the point that they seem to be beyond hope. Also, those who try for years to get married, to no avail.

    It's in these latter categories - especially if illegitimate children are spawned from it - that some of the worst tragedies occur. Children born into serial cohabitor families are 500% as likely to be abused or murdered.

  • They're not together at all. They got separated/broke up 15 years ago and had the actual divorce ~8 years ago. I haven't seen my father at all since then and I have no idea why.

  • They divorced. But not really because they had a "bad relationship", but it was because they felt as if it was a sibling love-- which I understand, because they were best friends for a really long time before they were married, and only dated for a couple months anyways. My mom remarried, but my parents are still really tight-knit.,, they still raised my family "as together as they could".

  • Sadly my parents got divorced 3 years ago. But I watched their relationship deteriorate since I was in 9th grade so I guess it was long overdue. It still hurt tho. They were together for 22 years. Married 17 of them.

  • They're still married but should have already been divorced long ago. Their arguments would get so bad and my mother would be on the losing side obviously until I started standing up for her. I hate their marriage.

  • My parent still married happily after 41 years... Times we so different back then... my parents hardly say much to each other but you can see their unconditional love they have for each other in the simple things they do. Their early days were tough financially for them but through it all they stuck like glue to each other and they are so dependent on each other... its amazing to see how they dance together through life's obstacles... tis but a dream for me unfortunately

  • No. They divorced when I was either 12 or 13. I didn't really suffer from it because they weren't good together. They argued a lot. I've always been closer to my mother. My father stayed gone a lot so it wasn't a huge change in living arrangements.

    • Are they still together if they haven't married? It would kind of be like a marriage without signed papers

    • In the state of Illinois common law marriage is still illegal and not recognized. They split up when my mom was pregnant with my sister and she is 22

  • Yes. 50% of marriages end in divorce in the US so yes it is common for divorces to happen. Sometimes it's just for the best too...

    • Oh lordy lol why thank the hypothetical man in the sky?

    • Show All
    • @Illusive_Man: In the sky, on the ground, filling the spaces between the particles that make up our visible world. With more evidence of identity being dug up from the Red Sea and other places every year. More than just a hypothetical. Though, it is a pity that CommieDearest has had experiences that would lead to such a strongly negative view of her dad. Seeing that my own hasn't always made clear-headed decisions, I worry what would happen if I ever had children. So perhaps it's a blessing in disguise that most of my attempts to find a woman are seemingly cosmically sabotaged early-on. Someone up there knows something about the equation of love that I can't (or don't want to) see.
