    My mum was 32 when she had me but she got married at 17 so 16/17 years.
    Edit: They are no longer together thankfully.

    They'd only been together about 6 months when I was conceived and got married when my mum was 4 months pregnant. My parents split up 11 years ago.

    About 9 years, I think, and they're still together now. They'd been married for about 7 by the time I was born.

    They'd been together for between 3 and 4 years, my mum was 36 or thereabouts and my dad was 38. It was a year and a half later for my brother. They married when I was 6 and divorced when I was 14. I think if I hadn't been conceived they wouldn't have been together that long but my mum had been told she couldn't have kids so I guess they weren't planning on becoming a family. I'm guessing having kids kind of trapped them together if anything because they both have strong views on family and appearances. I can't ever remember them being happy together and the years leading up to their divorce were exceedingly hostile.

    They both now have their own long term partners (6 years and 6 and a half years).
