    I've been on MFP since 2012 and with my husband since 2008 :) I plan on being his wife until one of us dies.

    That’s a horrible thing for a badge to say! It’s true that half of all marriages end in divorce. That means that half don’t and that half accounts for lots of years to balance out the divorces for the average! 42 here and going strong.

    What is horrible? this? - Wow! Seven years. Your community relationships have outlasted most marriages.

    Nah, thought it was mildly amusing, didnt strike me as horrible

    although, as people have pointed out, not strictly accurate.

    It's also important to note that half of marriages end in divorce, and not that half the people who get married end up divorced. People who get married and divorced multiple times count multiple times. It's kind of hard to drive up the average in the other direction because you can't get married twice if you don't get divorced, lol.

    well, yes, you can.

    Widows/widowers can get married twice.

    at any rate, I think we have established statistic is rather misleading already

    and 2 people disagreed with my OP - did they disagree I have been on MFP 7 years or that MFP sent me the message I said they did or that I have really been married 34 years ??????

    well, not really a debate (I hope! :o )

    Today is my wedding anniversary and coincidentally I recieved this message from MFP on receiving my 7 year MFP poster badge: Wow! Seven years. Your community relationships have outlasted most marriages.

    Do most marriages really last less than 7 years these days?? (or was that exagerated hyperbole??)

    Mine has so far lasted for 34 .

    #humblebrag ;):Do:)

    @paperpudding - happy anniversary!

    6 years married here and about the same time off and on MFP!

    They don't call it the 7 year for nothing.

    My hubby and I are almost 14 years and counting...

    My husband and I will be celebrating our 20th anniversary this summer. Apparently I joined MFP in 2012, but I thnk it took me a couple of years to actually use it.
