Have you ever gone through a divorce?

More than 90 percent of people marry by the age of 50. However, according to the American Psychological Association, between 40 and 50 percent of those married couples end up divorcing.

Within the last year, though, the pandemic is said to have brought married couples closer. According to the American Family Survey, 58 percent of Americans say the pandemic has made them appreciate their spouse more than they ever had in the past. Divorce numbers have actually decreased.

Have you ever gone through a divorce? Sorry to remind you of it, but please tell us in the poll below. Thanks!

I’ve never even gone through a marriage.

Still going strong, will hit 48 years this year. Although backing the trailer in a couple of times could have pushed us to the brink (ha).

Married twice, 30 years combined. Neither license mattered to me since i was equally committed before and after paperwork. Where it did matter is when the first license cost me 20 years of income because I divorced a cheating and criminally abusive woman in a state that still automatically gives everything to the woman regardless of greater income or abuse.

Started again broke and too old to have bio-kids, but I advise every young man i know to be honest and faithful and committed but don’t even THINK of signing on the line. There is little benefit if things are good and ZERO equality if things go bad. I’m happily remarried, but its not the paperwork that powers that.

Coming up on 52 years. One child, I figured out what caused that and fought her off after that!

Divorced once, living together twice — previously for 36 years. Once the kids are out of the house the license is immaterial.

Yes and being married to an alcoholic and through 3 rehab I threw the towel in after 10 years. Got the house, my daughter and moved on with my military career and retired. Remarried a divorced UPS driver what a gal. 32 years with challenges but what marriage doesn’t have. We have his hers and ours. We have four children from ages 40 to 26 and 4 grandchildren. I retired from the Air Force and just retired from State service waiting a year and a half for the wife to retire. Then travel, travel, travel. Kids to take what they want. Older son has a apartment were moving into as a base during the warm months on the east coast then head south or west for the cold months. But though it’s great now I wouldn’t do it again if I was to lose my partner too long to train someone else.

46 happy years, 2 great sons, two wonderful daughters-in-law, 2 grandchildren. I had to teach my city boy husband to love farming and camping, after that our marriage was perfect!

Divorced after 20 years, seems all we had in common were the children. Then married for 2 1/2 years…mistake! Just thought about this, all the personal information I’ve put forth on RVTravel polls, they must have quite the dossier built up on me..LOL !

Yep, I could easily sort by commenter. But, like I said, who has the time? I can barely keep up with the current comments coming in all day long and still do my “real” work. 🙄 Have a good night, Wolfe. 😀 –Diane

About the very previous comments, and not really about divorce, BUT I have often thought that with the information and comments you have received over time, as you being journalists and surveyors of the human condition, if you could hand your information to a sociologist, It would be interesting to see attitudes and how they have varied over time – along with a whole lot of different data that could be gleaned. A good thesis. (I don’t think a sentence is allowed to be this long.)

Yep, it would be interesting, KellyR. Especially if we could include all of the really horrible comments (disgusting language, very derogatory name-calling, etc.) that we’ve deleted. But that’s an interesting thought. And yes, that’s a very long sentence. Reminds me of some of our writer’s paragraph-long sentences that I have to divide up into about three sentences to make them understandable. (But you can write as long of a sentence as you want in the comments, KellyR.) 😆 Have a good night! 😀 —Diane

Happy to report that the gorgeous young woman who married me in 1969 is still with me, and that we’re going strong. Thereby proving my life-long motto that “it’s far better to be lucky than good”…
