By this I mean:

two married heterosexual parents in their first marriage.


I've heard some many different situations over the past few years, and I'm starting to think it may not even be realistic, though my parents have managed it, and I want to when I get married.

Keep on topic plz.

Cuckoo told me he has three dad's, I'm interested to see how that unorthodox setup in a modern Britain has affected his development into adulthood and what possible hurdles he has encountered.

I am from this kind of family but my parents got divorced after I was born, I live with my mother and I would say she isn't such a traditionalist...

When the parents have been divorced, that doesnt count right? Because I thought about 33% got divorced eventually, which isnt matching the poll.

My parents are pretty traditional, theyve been together since their 16th.

So, does that count as yes or no?

See, I consider that a no. It's common to get married if you are having a kid.

What I should have said was "up to the age of 18"

so the couple'd have have been married 20+ years? that makes more sense

i wouldn't really consider what i have "traditional", although my situation is common. divorce rates are pretty high in the united states

My parents are still together and if I ever have kids I will definitly try to stay married as long as my kids are in the home. Iv seen several nasty divorces with lengthy custody battles and each parent trying to influence the kids against the other parent and I just think that's an awful thing for the children to have to experience. Obviously not all divorces are like that. One of my friends parents are still what you would call friends, but I just think that being raised by two people in a stable environment is likely better for a child then being raised by a single person or being passed between two people.
