Out of all of my firends only one of their parents have not been dirovrced. I had a hard time with my parents divorce and I feel bad that so many people have gone through the same thing. How do you feel about this? Is marriage not as important anymore?

I think it's sad that everyone you know has divorced parents. I think when people put themselves and their personal happiness before the happiness of their children, it makes the children sad at first, then sometimes it kind of sours the children on marriage. My own parents have been married for 41 years, and my husband and I have been married for 21 years.

I came from a broken family. I saw my parents fight, shout at each other. Mother is leaving the house but after a while, i will see them together again. Its been years that same routine is happening to our family. Same thing. Same circumstances. I'm so sick seeing the same thing. I have been emotionally trapped with this situation. I never have a normal childhood because of this. It was hard to deal with life having such trauma in life. But I guess, as time flies, things have changed too. When I got married, I told myself that never will i see myself in the same predicament that my parents got into. However, you cannot tell...married life is full of sacrifices, and it depoends on you, on how you are going to cope up with it. After all what i have been through, i am so happy to say to you and to the rest that I am hapily married for 15 years already. I guess, one should ate his/her pride if you really wanted for things to work out.

My parents are still married. When I came to America for high school, I was very surprised to learn the lot of my friend's parents are divorced. In Japan, couple try to stay for thier children most of the time and when I was little it hard to find my friend's parents divorced. I've been married 4 years now and I hope we will stay married for long time. Children needs both parents.

I came from a stable home, but my husband did not. I believe all of his family memebers have been divorced and have been married several times.When I met my husband he didnt know really how to trust or to love. He learned early in life I guess to watch after himself only. It is a shame when two people who love each other in the beginning, who share the same dreams and hopes. are not willing to talk ,care or trust or to love one another any more.It something that has to be worked for from both partners. To lust you could say is easy, but to truely love is a full time commitment.Most people now adays, do not want to put the time and energy into it. My husband and I have been married for 20 years. It has had its ups and downs. like most. but a true love will never fade i guess you could say. Oh by the way. my husband is the only one that hasnt had a divorce in his family.. I must of taught him something . :)

My parents are still married. They're going on their "40"th Anniversary this next year. My husband and I have been married now for "18 years", marriage is important.
