I met my boyfriend (or life partner) 3 years ago, and we've been living together for 2 years now. For both of us, this is our second "serious" relationship.

And it's going so well!

Congrats to everyone on their long marriages. To those that are getting married in their 20's I sometime think you have a better chance of staying married that those gettting married in their 30's as then we are kind of set in out ways and somewhat resistant to change

My parents were high school sweethearts, never dated anyone other than each other and they have been married 36yrs. They got married while my father was enlisted in the Navy and in college and my mother was completing her Master's. They got engaged on Thanksgiving break while they were both home, married over winter break and she moved across the country with him. No money, no big paychecks, just each other.

My DH and I married at 30 and we will be celebrating our 1st anniversary this August !!

Congratulations on 10 years Sandy, and Congrats to all the happy couples ... and happy divorcees.

I've been with my high school sweetheart for 17 years, married for 15 of em. I too got married when I was 19, he was 20 and we had a 7 month old by then.

I love telling people that the statistics about young couples aren't always true. We got started early and have had a long, strong relationship all this time. We're still the SAME crazy-in-love couple we were in high school, just with a couple teenagers, a few cars and a mortgage.

DH and I met in December of 1997...married in December of 1999...and this year is 10 years of rollercoaster up and down from bliss to fury back to bliss again.

And I like it that way.

Its getting so werid now....Ill be knitting thinking something about something right that minute, and I kid you not, he opens his mouth and says the SAME THING IM THINKING at that EXACT moment.

Kinda funny...yet disturbing. Ive told him to quit talking when we watch movies, cause he always pops off with the same comments Im thinking.

PaperGirl there too!

I agree. Not only were we young when we got married, but we already had a child together (I had her when I was 16) and he was in the navy so there were a lot of people trying to talk us out of it and saying it wouldn't work. :yadda: Whatever.

No, the odds were definitely not in our favor, but it really ticked me off that people automatically assumed we would fail. Not cool. Now when I see those people I feel very smug.

Well, only Mimi has been married longer than I so far. We are going to have our 35th anniversary this November. I tell everyone I got married when I was -10!

He is the most extraordinary man to put up with me and love me the way he does. He takes me at face value and tells me he loves me every day. The most touching thing he does everyday is when he comes to bed he gives me a kiss. He could be furious at me, but I get that kiss every night. It sometimes is on my head, my shoulder, whatever he can touch in the dark, but I have never not gotten a good night kiss except when he was in the Navy and was out to sea. He would then give me little X's for everyday he was gone in the letters he sent! I can honestly say he is my very very best friend and I wouldn't want to live without him.

As for you, Mason: You are a seriously bad, bad man....

I try

What do you mean guys don't knit?

Linux: because a PC is a terrible thing to waste.

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.
