I was wondering how many of you guys luckily have parents still together? Seems to be the minority these days.

There was a poll on this a while back I believe.

But yes, mine are still together.

My parents have been split up numerous times in my 20 years of living, now they are currently apart. Never been divorced though oddly enough.
is too young to be versed in such grown up ways...

Yes, but its as if they're not, cause they don't talk to each other.

Why would they lie if the poll is anonymous?

Statistically about half of marriages end in divorce, and of those people that get remarried, half of those marriages will also end in divorce. That's a stat I came across while working in my Law Studies class, I think that was taken within the past 5 years so should be fairly accurate.

To answer the question, no my parents are not together anymore.

*edit*

That stat is from an American text book so I'm guessing its from and only applys to America.

I think if the pit was older, there would be more divorces. Lots of youngins will have their parents divorce in the future.

...third option implying that a test tube baby is not between a married couple?

I'm not a test tube baby, but I'm just saying.


Test tube babies can happen between married couples, but if it did, there are other poll options for that. He's just covering all his bases.

And yes, my parents are still together.

My parents are still together. But every one of my friends has a non-traditional/non-nuclear family.

... I just feel so left out.

if you're parents are split, don't feel too bad man, it COULD be worse! i'm sure you know that though.

if it makes you feel better, here's a quick spiel of my parents:

as far back as i can remember from what my gma told me, my dad died when i was around 15 months old, and my mother left him on his deathbed, he died of AIDS infection from sharing the same tattoo needle with a bunch of his friends. they all died. but my 'mother' treated me and my bros like garbage and still left him even though he was willing to do anything for her and give up anything for her. so i grow up and just a couple years ago my second oldest bro informed me that our gma told him something he thought i should know. apparently my dad wanted them to have a DNA test done on me when i was born to make sure i was his, i guess he was wise about my 'mother' or something, and it turned out i was NOT his, but my gma told him i was anyway, not wanting to break his heart. so apparently my 'mother' just f*cked some random guy, had me, and the only one of my two parents i thought i could care about in any way is probably not even related to me at all.

yea, it's a bit of a mindf*ck. but things could be worse, i've dealt with the rough times and will deal with more, but nothings unsurpassable when you've got friends and family that cares about you.

cheers have a drink on me
