    Have you had a marriage that lasted less than a year?

    My mom had a marriage that lasted 6 weeks.

    There's worse:

    "In 2012, a Dubai man divorced his wife within seconds of marrying her. Immediately after the ceremony, the man ducked out of the courtroom where the wedding occurred, and into another nearby courtroom and divorced her.

    His reason? Abdul Salam Darweesh, director of the family rehabilitation and guidance section at Dubai's court, explains: "The groom said that his bride's father made a condition that his daughter must keep her job after marriage and that he accepted this condition because he was too embarrassed to say no….he said that he had thought the problem was sorted out with his bride but that she insisted on keeping her job."

    I've never been married, I've never been in a relationship, I've never slept with anyone.

    I win.

    I'm far too religious for that, really. And in reality, I'm not too fussed about losing my virginity; that's just a detail. If I am ever with someone, he's going to be as religious as I am and share my faith - this is unlikely, and will likely be a deciding factor if I ever convert.

    Many people who are in that boat just won't admit it.

    All I have to say about this thread is: what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.

    I heard a comedian refute that the other day by saying, "what happened in Vegas just turned 3."

    ever kissed a guy? Feel free to tell me to **** off if that's too personal! :p

    But I do think separation from societal norms for the sake of God and inner convictions, preserving innocence, and being your own person, is a noble quality (and underrated).

    I've been in a relationship with a married woman for nearly three years now.

    Does that pertain at all?

    No, I haven't. I have had many offers but men as a whole aren't really my thing, apparently.

    That does get some people killed, but other than that, I'm happy for you.

    Not counting any prior girlfriends

    All of these are in years, so I do not qualify for the shortest RF marriage

    Married twice, engaged 3 times. dated my first wife longer than we were married.
    Dated 2nd fiancee longer than we were engaged
    Dated 2nd wife shorter that we were engaged and much less time than we've been married.

    Tyler is a guy I used to know.

    He'd meet a guy. They'd court awhile, then fall in love. They'd move in together and get married, start a life together.
    But then they'd grow apart, and develop other interests and relationships. They'd have fights! Then an ugly divorce...

    This happened over a weekend, maybe once a month. Quite regularly.

    As a group, I don't really like queers all that much. Mostly they're pretty damaged goods. That's what happens when people grow up in a bigoted world, taught early on that they're worthless human crap that God hates.

    Ya know, like the Christo/Muslim world.
