I will be married 13 years in December but only the first 3 were good, and that might be a stretch. I basically don't consider myself married outside of legal aspects for the past 5-9 years or so, depending on how I look at it.

It would have been 14 years of marriage in February, and 19 years total in August.

Two and a half years. It's my second marriage, and she's better looking than me and makes more money, so I'm not sure who the trophy spouse is.

33 years on the 21st of this month.

Come August, it'll be 19 years married. This past April marked 23 overall.

Also in April was our son's 2nd birthday. We're 40 and 41; our chronology is, um, different.

Married 28 years as of this past Saturday. We’ve been together though since Sept 1980, so that’s pushing 39 years ...

We'll beat you by a month .

In August, we'll have known each other for 42 years.

I was a math major in college, so I can't quite figure out how all that is possible while I'm still 29 years old...
