Totally random but I'm just being nosey!
My mam and biological dad split when I was 3 or 4 and my sister was a baby. I see him around the town, he knows who I am and I know who he is but I don't speak to him cos he is a tw@t.
My mam got with my step dad when I was 11 and my sister was 8 and they had my brother when I was 15yrs. They are still together and I class him as my dad, he is the grandad to mine and my sisters kids and he was the one who gave me away.
What about your parents?

They're still together but they'd probably be better off apart. This is mainly due to the amount of arguments that have taken place, my mum accusing my dad of this, that and the other as well as physical violence towards him, and his unreasonableness towards her.
Yes. They have been together since school. Tbh they shouldn't be together as they used to have horrendous rows when we were younger and now they just have me and my sister (o and the dog) to talk about.
My ils were still together and were vvv cute as they used to hold hands. The first time I seen them hold hands was when we were on holiday and I was as my mum and dad would NEVER do that! FIL would kiss mil if he went out which shocked me too as my dad woukd just say bye to my mum iyswim

DS I feel the same!
DS thats a shame.
cp ah that is lovely.
PIL are still together, they've been together for 30+ years, although were close to getting a divorce when H was at school because MIL had been having an affair.

My parents split uo when I was 18 months old (the age U was when Ex left). My Dad has been with his present wife for nearly 30 years. My mum was with her second husband for about ten years and isn't with anyone now.

Yes mine are. They are an amazing strong very together couple & I really hope the same for me &oh. My father has the patience of a saint to be with my mother!
Oh parents - I've never seen them together as a romantic couple. They lived together until oh & I bought a house then shortly after it all went downhill. They had always slept in separate rooms since oh can mind. Oh living seemed to be the catalyst for them to go separate ways.

Yes - been married for more than 40 years.
H's parents have also been married for 40 plus years.
Both couples seem to get on well. But I think H's (although younger than mine) are way more set in their ways. But maybe I'm biased!

Yes, my parents are still happily together and will be celebrating their 44th wedding anniversary next month in Mexico!
MrDD's parents are celebrating their coral (35th) wedding anniversary in the Maldives in April.

My Parents split when I was about 5 or 6, and got back together last year, after 22 years apart.
My Dad had just come out of an 18 yr relationship, and my Mum had been on her own for 6 years after my Step Dad died.

AK I find that so bizarre but lovely.
22/02/2013 at 22:39
Yeah my parents are together, they had their 35th anniversary last year. They are living it up now me and my bro no longer live at home. Bought a boat and spend most of their weekends there drinking in the clubhouse.

You find it bizarre???
I grew up with my parents b!tching about each other, now they're getting married again, ha.
22/02/2013 at 22:59
Pebbles sounds good!
AK ha ha it must of been mad when they got back together.

It was J's Birthday party 2 weeks before they got back together. First time in years they'd been in the same room as each other. I ended up chucking my Dad out, as he and my Mum were getting ready to punch each other. So yeah, was a tiny bit surprised when my Mum told me they were back together.

Mum and Dad would have been celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary this year. However Mum passed away 14 years ago. I do wonder whether they would still be together. I suspect they would have been,
23/02/2013 at 06:50
Yes still together. They met when mum was 18 and dad 20- she worked for his dads company and they started an affair (my dad was engaged to another woman). My sister was the result of that affair. My dad ended his engagement, grandad bought them a little house and they stayed together. I don't think they're the happiest couple but they mostly enjoy each others company and I guess after 34 years with someone, you get comfortable! My mum left my dad over numerous arguments when we were children though- dramatic

Yes mine are although it's not been a bed of roses. They are quite romantic with each other and hold hands when out and wind each other up like big kids. They have been together since they were 15, married at 19 and have stayed married for 54 years! H's parents divorced when he was 5 and he says a little piece of his heart is still broken over it :-(

My parents split when i was about 2 & my sister a bubby. I dont know the full story but suspect she was having an affair with my now step dad (although they arent married). I strongly suspect my sister is his child too but would never bring it up with anyone. I dont see my biological father except at family events my cousin holds. Hes an idiot amd stands there playing doting father relaying stories of my childhood when in reality he dumped me amd my sis on my nana (he had custody of us) & buggered off with woman after woman drinking and being a sleaze bag. He took our xmas presents off us one year on boxing day to sell so he had beer money! He constantly let me down as a kid and i sfopped speaking to him on my 16th birthday. My stepdad gave me away at my wedding. I call him dad Hes the one who has been there for me. Mum dont know how lucky she istto have him.

My parents are still together (they have been married for 47 years), but should have split up years ago. They constantly bicker and *** about each other which I can't stand. I try to avoid getting caught in the middle, but it is difficult. They are a good "social couple" and put on a front for others but generally they lead separate lives.
When I left my first husband, my mum said to me that she wishes she had had the guts to the same before they had kids - speaks volumes. I could see my 1stH and I going down the same route as my parents and wasn't prepared to live in that kind of limbo and unhapiness for the rest of my life. My H and I now are completely different to them and more like my PIL, who were a doting couple (still held hands etc.), but sadly my MIL died shortly before my H and I got together.
