    Do they get on?
    How long have they been in love/hate?

    My parents are divorced and hate each other.
    They both ***** about the other to me, which can be quite amusing.

    My parents have been divorced for a decade, and yet oddly this year we'll be having Christmas dinner together as a family, for the second year in a row.

    Well, it's not like I've ever asked them.

    They seem happy together, but maybe more of a comfortable-love that I imagine (and hope) comes from spending the majority of their lives together rather than a passionate-love.

    Despite being a love marriage, I'm not entirely convinced my parents were ever really in love with one another. Maybe they thought it at the time... :dontknow:

    I feel all 'Parent Trap'ish.

    My parents hate one another (well my mum hates my dad) but they still go on holiday together and he does the gardening etc. awks.

    Eh, I'm not sure to be honest. I think they love each other to an extent but they're just not in love with each other anymore if that makes sense. They barely speak, more pass by each other throughout the day...

    No. Well, my Dad still asks my Mum to get back with him almost every Valentine's Day (they've been divorced 11 years)... so maybe he does. But he doesn't love her enough to have not cheated on her, or to pay a single penny towards my upbringing... so maybe not!

    My mum and stepdad were on the brink of divorce for about four years or so. They are still together, but live completely separate lives. I think it's a real case of staying together for the kids (i've got two younger siblings).
    Mum has told me, and means it genuinely as opposed to just in a fit of anger, not to get married, that it's really not worth it. It kind of depresses me, especially when i see friends' parents still looking like they at least enjoy each other's company. Hmmm...

    Nope. Separation was the best thing that ever happened to them though.
