My parents, while not all kissy-face, have been married for something close to 40 years, I guess. They always seem like a team and they rarely fight, although my dad has the naturally strong and assholish personality of a retired Navy officer. My mom is a pretty strong person, educated and going after her own goals, too. I wouldn't say there's much romantic love, but they both know they've got each other's backs. I guess I would call it a comfortable marriage.

What about yours? Do you think the number of times your parents have married or divorced bears any marks upon your own personality or sense of well-being, good or bad?

My parents married like 26 years ago for the first and only time. I don't think it has left on me any mark, good or bad.

They're in their original marriage, which started two years before they had me, and this last year was their 20th anniversary. I don't think I can ever remember them getting in much of a fight about anything at all [or either they do a damn great job of covering it up], so that has worked out well for me.

Original marriage.

To each other, I mean.

And they don't fight. They're at their 20th anniversary, or something close to that.

Change 'Moonbeam' to 'Sunshine or Bam-Bam' and you get moi.
A little old lady goes to the doctor and says, "I canít stop passing gas. Luckily, my farts donít smell and are always silent. As a matter of fact, Iíve farted twice since Iíve been here in your office, but you didnít even notice."

"I can help you," says the doc. "Take these pills and come back next week."

The next week, the lady returns. "Doctor," she says, "I donít know what you gave me, but now my farts reek."

The doctor says, "Good, we fixed your sinuses! Now letís work on your hearing."

Parents still together in first marriage. Their sort of anti-divorce.

My mom was my age when she got married (18) and my dad was 26. It's been 19 years and they are still married happily enough.

My mommy & daddy:


My little brother looks a lot like my dad.


Then there's me. We still don't know how I popped out with blond hair and blue eyes. I think I look like both of them.

My parents have been married over 20 years, in their first marriage. They argue over money, and food, but that's about it.

My parents are still happily married, though I don't understand how my mom can put up with my dad. He's the most annoying, tempermental person I know.

My parents have been married for around 20 years, first marriage. I've never seen them yell or fight, ever.

The poll results don't really surprise me. Most of the kids I know whose parents are divorced are pretty fucked up.

My parents are both divorced, thought my mom had a previous marriage.

They always fought.. They broke up when I came back from a band trip in anaheim in 8th grade.

Quoted from Lovely Insanity:
Change 'Moonbeam' to 'Sunshine or Bam-Bam' and you get moi.


I know someone named Sunshine. It's just a name, she never gets made fun of or anything.

My parents have been married for 26 years, and although they arugue and bicker a lot, it's still a comfortable marriage.

Divorced, neither one is remarried though. The poll doesn't have an option for that.

My parent married in '76, had me in '77, and got divorced in '78. Divorces weren't very common back then, in the place where I grew up. My father remarried a couple of years later, and had 2 more children. My mother never remarried. I expected the divorce count for this poll te be higher.

My parents have been married for around 25 years. It's a suprise that they havn't gotten a divorce because both of their parents got divorces, and, statistically, that is supposed to raise the chances of their getting a divorce by a LOT. But they don't argue a lot. Only when dad goes out and buys something expensive without telling mom. (Boat, laptop, motorcycle, power tools.)

I'm not surprised by the poll results because most of the kids I know who come from broken homes are the ones that are pretty fucked up. Sort of like Joel, except they're fucking idiots (no offense Joel). But they do tons of drugs and drink and have sex and basically don't give enough of a fuck about anything to be effective members of society. They're not the kind of people that would register at a place like INTL.

EDIT: Most of the kids in my school fit the above description, so maybe it's not the broken home that causes it.

My mom was married once before she married my dad. She and my dad had been married for seven or eight years when he died in 1994.

My mom has a boyfriend now.
