Wow! Congrats to your parents, that's a huge accomplishment!

My parents were married for 16 years, but they divorced - my mom and her boyfriend have been together for almost 10.

My mom and dad will be celebrating their 40th this september!

And honestly I'm a little mad about their "celebration". My mom has been talking for about 5 years of wanting to go back to yellowstone park for their 40th anniversary. My dad agreed, my sister was even giving them a big ole check to pay for the trip. About a month ago my mom says that my dad decided he didn't want to do all that driving, so they decided to go up to this resort in Northern AR. It's a nice place, but the only thing to do there is go fishing (which my mom will just sit and watch) and then they were going to have all us kids meet them there for a nice dinner together. 3 weeks into the planning and my dad decided that was going to cost too much money, so NOW he just wants to drive to TUNICA and gamble and have a buffet dinner and see if they can get a room comped to them for free. It makes me MAD, because everytime I go anywhere on vacation my mom goes on and on about how my dad would never take her on a vacation and she was looking forward to this sooo much and now she gets to drive a couple hours away and do something that they could do ANYTIME. But my mom is the doting little wife and do whatever my dad says. It just makes me sad that he can't make this special for her

my parents have been married for 41 years, and dh's for 39. Dh still has both sets of grandparents, and they've been married for 61 and 66 years.

congrats on your parents' 35th!

My mom and step dad have been together for like 14 years or something that makes me feel old LOL. I remember when they started dating.

My mom's record was 10 years... but my grandparents would have been married 60 years come September, except that gramps passed away this past March. Still, I hope Lou and I have a marriage like theirs!

I think I was 5 when my parents got married (I'm awful and can't remember their anniversary) but that means they've been married for 22 years now. I gotta give kudos to my mom, they've been through some really rough times together (we all have actually) because my dad was an alcoholic when I was younger, even into my teen years, but he's been sober for years now. I look back on certain things and feel so bad for my poor mom.

They're happy now though.
