the one i am now 5 years

Strange as this sounds....I've been seeing the same doctor (as a patient) for nealry 17 years....longer than either of my marriages...SS

<p>I have been married almost 7 years and we dated for 2 years before we got married. This is the longest I have ever been in a relationship.</p>

<p>I HAVE BEEN MARRIED TWICE AND THAY BOTH LASTED 7 YEARS,BOTH ENDED DESASTEROUSLY I MIGHT ADD.</p><br />
<p>IVE NOW BEEN CELEBATE 12 YEARS SO I GUESS MY BEING ALONE 12 YEARS&nbsp; OUT WAYS BEING IN A RELATIONSHIP ....</p>

<p>Longest relationship period is with my Mom, she has been doing everything within her power and then some to make sure I'm loved and taken care of for 23 years, 10 months and some odd days (plus pregnancy!).&nbsp; She is the best Mom that has ever walked this planet.&nbsp; I love her and appreciate her more than she'll ever know! :)</p><br />
<p>My longest romantic relationship is 3 years, 9 months and 19 days...there have been rough times, but I wouldn't trade the experiences we've had in the last 4 years together.&nbsp; :)</p>

<p>My longest is only a year, but I'm hoping that my current relationship far surpasses that. =)</p>

<p>48. with myself. it's been a love hate relation at times, but still planning for tommarrow!</p>

<p><strong>Nine but it seemed like 99. It went by lke a evil, slow illness.</strong></p>

<p>we have been living together for 4 year and had a 3 day relationship when we first met, we chatted made love and laughed together, He actually listened to what I had to say! On the fourth day, I would say ignorance is bliss! Yes since then he's ignorant towards me! arh, bliss!</p>

<p>29 1/2 years.....that is dating...and marrage.....and each day it keeps getting longer...and longer......</p>

<p>My wife and I have been in our current relationship for 38 years.</p><br />
<p>My Mom is still alive so that's 58 years.</p>

<p>Almost three years.....</p>

<p>31 yrs only ended when he died 10 years ago</p>

<p>I'VE NEVER BEEN ONE TO COUNT THE HOURS, DAYS, OR YEARS....TO ME IT'S THE "QUALITY" OF TIME NOT THE QUANITY....MY HUSBAND AND I HAVE BEEN TOGETHER 3 YRS., I HAD TO STOP AND THINK ABOUT THAT. ....LIVE LIFE AND ENJOY...IT GOES BY FAST...</p>

<p>I have been married to my best friend and most enthralling lover for the last 25 years</p>

<p>My significant other and I together 25 years ........... Could be just getting&nbsp;out by now ......</p>

<p>I have loved my **** -clitty since I was 4 I am older now 52 and still love it</p>

<p>13 years. Any relationship is great the first 2 years because everyone is on their best behavior. Around year 12, if you can stand to hear the person breathe, there's a chance you might have found the right one!</p>

<p>24 years with my parents and sister.</p>

<p>9 years and counting....</p>

<p>I guess I am kind of a stalker, I can't let go of myself though I have a restriction order against me!!</p>

<p>33 years to my husband</p>

<p>The one with me - I heard someone on tv the other day saying no wonder we often don't like what we look like - we have looked at our own face for the longest and the best pair of shoes we've ever owned were the last ones we bought. Couldn't have put it better myself.</p>

<p>This is year 4 of my longest relationship. :)</p>

<p>with the universe, it's infinite</p><br />
<p>with another human, non-romantic, anyone that's been in my life since i was born</p><br />
<p>romantic, this one is more complex. i've been married 10yrs, however we've only been together for 2 of those. i'm in a relationship now that been going strong for 8+years...yes, while married...</p>

<p>I'm gonna assume romantic and say four months.</p>

<p>I suppose the relationship with my father.&nbsp; I lost him last year after having him in my life for 55 years!&nbsp; I surely do miss those gorgeous blue eyes and smile!</p>

<p>&nbsp;ive been married to the same man 28 years!</p>

<p>The longest relationship I have been in that I would love to let go of is the one I have with my depression. I have been in that relationship for almost 12 years now.</p>
