I get it that I am very luck in today's world to have my parents still together, and even more so in love still; but I still find this effects my decision making. I find that girls I either dated or liked and had divorced parents tended to be a darker, more depressing and generally less loving or unwilling to love. It has almost become a relief to me when I find out a girl I like still has married parents, like an extra tick in the yes column
I am in no way saying my experiences are true in every way, or that I would not date a girl who's parents were divorced, but it does factor in for me. I think because to me, I will never understand that upbringing, and they won't understand mine.
So what do you think?

Yay to your mom and dad! :) It doesn't particularly matter to me, but I totally get where you're coming from. When I learn that people were raised by single parents whether by divorce or death, it's kinda like "oh, okay you get it."
And honestly divorce does have a profound impact on a child's view of relationships. We all grow up, but of course when I was a kid I thought my parents were going to stay together forever and not having that kinda destroyed some.. sense of innocence? for lack of better term, in my mind about romance and marriage.0

Yes, the marital status of people I meet does play a big part in whether or not I'm going to be interested in them in a romantic way. A woman may be stunningly beautiful, nice and smart, but if she's married I'm not going to even think about having a sexual/romantic relationship with her.0
