How Long Have You Been with Your Partner ?

Ask a Question

When reading about Prince Phillip's death it mentioned that he had been married for over 73 years, can only imagine what a huge gap he will leave.I

I have been married for 29 years but we have been together 31 years.

What's your longest relationship?

I was with my ex for 3 years before marriage and 'legally' married for 37 years but no 'marriage' for most of them.

So sorry to hear that, I know that we have gone through patches where my husband annoys me by just breathing!

Don't get me wrong I sure I do things to irritate him on a daily basisπŸ™‚

The last year has been tough as there is no escape from each other

beccatavender I finally plucked up the courage to leave 8 years ago, got a good job and moved out. Met my 'man friend' 5 years ago and it was/is like a breath of fresh air and considering we decided to retire early at the end of 2019 to travel, yep travel in 2020, even this past year hasn't spoilt it πŸ™‚

Been together 14 years (we're not married) i was 20 when we got together. We are engaged and have been for around 9 years just never 'got round' to getting married but to be honest, it doesnt really make a difference to us whether we're married or not. It would just mean i would have the same name as him and our 3 kids.

beccatavender a few of my friends find it strange that I've never had another relationship but I was never interested. Then I saw my husband on first day of teacher training and that was it for me! Marrying him was the best thing I ever did.

MrsCraig People think its strange iv only had one relationship too. Met him when I was 15. Been together 23 years nearly 24. (Showing my age there). I adore him, always have. I couldn't have asked for a better dad for our sons. He's still my fav person to hang out with. Still my best mate as well as my partner. Would be lost without him. We have never married, sure we'll get around to it at some point but more for legal reasons tbh.

Glitterandgold that sounds like my husband and I. I still miss him when he goes out to work and love nothing more than just relaxing on the sofa with him or eating dinner together. He is the most amazing Dad to our wee man, who absolutely adores his Daddy. Its been 6 years but I still love it when I hear someone say my married name, its like a little reminder of how lucky I am.

Been with MrsChimp for over 16 years.

Started talking randomly on AOL Chat back in the day and agreed to meet up for a drink.

Didn't think we'd suit eachother in the beginning because on our 2nd meet, she asked me to go to a Bryan Adams gig with her. I don't like Bryan Adams. Still don't tbh.

Anyway, we're still together and she's the best thing that ever happened to me πŸ™‚

Firstly, very sad news about Prince Phillip and the huge loss to the Queen. Thinking of them all at this sad time xx. I have known my husband for 36yrs and been married for 21yrs. Almost 2yrs ago my husband was diagnosed with bowel cancer which burst his appendix. He had an op and chemo. When we went back to the hosp they told us he had 2 blood clots and liver cancer. Another op, more chemo and injections for 6 months he is at the moment cancer free. I thank God every day that he is still here and am soooo greatful to the NHS for all their hard work, the Cancer unit was amazing. Happy Times now β€οΈπŸ’‹

Sorry to hear about his illness and great news that he currently cancer free, I think sometimes it makes you appreciate how much you love each other.

6 years together and just 'celebrated' our 4th wedding anniversary, not that we have ever properly celebrated...

Our history with anniversaries:

1st - first baby just born 2 weeks ago

2nd - second baby due in 6 days

3rd - lockdown

4th - lockdown

πŸ˜‚

Maybe next year! But still love it. Very happy with two gorgeous boys! Wouldn't change it!
