    Mmmkay yes, I think those of you who said that its probably more common but it wont be reflected on the forum because most people have very young kids are correct.

    DH and I have bee together 7 years, and have #3 on the way
    I am not sure what the age of the child has to do with it. My mum left my dad when I was 18months, my best friends partner left her when her children were 2 & 4. But then DF's parents separated when he was 10. I know one girl that has a 4yo and 2yo to seperate fathers and she is with a guy that isnt the father to either of them. If there had to be an age when most parents split up I think it would be when they are younger IMO.

    I think they all just mean that if x% of people split up when the kids are young and y% split up say when the kids are 10yrs+, then this poll is really only going to capture the x's, because most people on here have at least one young kid. So you're not actually seeing the whole picture, as you're missing all the y's in the equation.
    I guess just means that the longer you're with someone the higher the overall chance that you'll split up...
    Hope that made sense, lol!!

    Nope and never want to be!
    kids don't even know him. df came into their life at a very young age. they know only him as their father. they deserve to have someone like my df as a dad. :-)

    Only your appalling taste in men. Creep and balding. Blerk. I'm glad you're a lesbian now, but I still don't think your taste has improved. Ellen is... only a slight improvement.

    No, and by far the best decision I've made. I now have a wonderful DF and a proper Daddy to my DD's.

    I was an adult, so was my older brother, and my little brother was just about to turn 12 when our parents split up, whereas I was single from conception. Age is relevant because chances are many members who have been together and only had kids within that relationship will be divorced inthe future even if it's when the kids are adults. Yet right now they can say they are still with the father of their first child.
