how many of you were married for ten years or more and ended up divorced? why?
ETA...my 18 year old sister asked me yesterday if me and dh were going to go the distance since everyone she knows is divorced. i simply answered yes. we are committed to our marriage and making it work. we married young but always make our marriage a priority. just thought i would give a little background on why the post was made. we have been married longer than anyone in our families.
Me. Will be married for 10 years this fall. Getting a divorce. Our marriage had been going downhill for a while. I have begged for counseling (both marriage and for him personally). I went to counseling myself and have been fighting for 5 yrs. I am just done fighting.
Not personally but its a huge fear of mine because as a teen, almost ALL of my friends parents divorced! It seemed like once the youngest was around 12 or so they just gave up. All married well over 10 years!
My own parents divorced when I was 18 and my brother 13. My Dad was cheating so its not like they just gave up but clearly he gave up. I can name 3 tops facebook friends that have married parents that are their parents from birth. Its very sad and I wonder how I can stop that in my marriage...
