Information Please

Those of you who are part of a couple (same or opposite marriages/relationships) please let me know how long you've been in them. If not now, what's the longest one you've had. I'm mostly just curious. Some I know from reading your blogs but can't quite remember or don't know about others.

Me? I made it 9 1/2 years being married. No other relationships have lasted that long except with a car, cat, job, or friends. I guess I'm more of a sprinter than marathon runner of romantic relationships. I made it to the finish line of those. Or maybe it's the ADD.

Wow! Impressive statistics! I've been divorced 39 years. Does that count for anything? Yeah, I didn't think so.

Got together in 1990, a relatively child-bride at 24 in early 1994, and just clocked up 15 years of marriage, and hope for many more.
My rule - not only do you have to love them, you have to actually like them as well.

Brad and I will celebrate 19 years together in November! (That's 50 straight years, I bleieve!) ;)

My keys to success: Don't take yourself too seriously, don't hold a grudge, and take separate vacations every now and again - absence does in deed make the heart grow fonder! :)

Big hug!

One year this fall. And hoping to get gay married next Spring, assuming the Maine voters don't overturn the new law.

I dated my ex for 3 years, then was married to him for 3 more (felt like forever). Been divorced for 23 years now, not been in a relationship for over 10 years. Don't really miss it much, no time for all that...

I've been single for a long time. My longest relationship lasted 5 years, and the first 5 years were rather nice, the last a living hell. But he was pretty, so it drug out longer than it should have.

We are soul sisters, honey- the longest I made it was 7 years, and I knew it was doomed from about day three! Still, I kept at it because I felt like I was "supposed" to be coupled! Now I don't give a shit- single and loving it!
I think you're right on track with the ADD comment....
What was I talking about again?

Tivo Mom said...

Just because you asked so nicely. I have been married for almost 12 and together for 16. We have been together since we were 19. I am not sure that I know what it is like to be with anyone else.
