    Twice. First one was about four years.
    I told 'er indoors when we started getting 'serious' that I had one wedding left in me, and no more divorces. So if she really wanted to marry me she had to stick at it.
    We've been together over 20 years, and married 18 years in June. She's a keeper.
    Pain in the ass, but a keeper.

    @Son of Wobble & @Chicory Blue - Congratulations.

    Just once. I skipped the ex and went straight for the trophy wife first. That saved a lot of headaches. Plus, she puts up with me and my stupid jokes about things like that. We have been together for almost 35 years and have been married for getting a couple years shy of 30.

    I'm a two-timer.

    My ex-wife married my ex-friend, and live in my ex-house with my ex-dog. I got my pickup truck and a guitar. It's like a country song.

    I met my second wife at a Halloween party. We had a debate about marriage. She was firmly against it. I took it as a challenge. We've been married for 15 years.

    I betting that the finger she shows him isn't the one you put a ring on.

    Twice, to the same woman.

    I advise against doing this.

    Got a vasectomy afterwards as well, not gonna make it harder, on me or another human being.

    Been living with another woman for almost ten years. Neither one of is sure about marriage and dam sure not going to do it for tax purposes.

    Twice. First one only three years. Then single for 6 years. And now married for 37 years. She doesn't complain about gigs and practices, but I do get pushback on additional basses. I guess six IS enough... 20170808_071724-1.jpg

    ...I was driving my 1966 Bel Air ‘round a big, loopy curve in the road, on the way to see The Dead in Syracuse in 1979.

    She said (I swear)
    “So...ya wanna do this forever?”

    HELL Yeah!

    Sort of. The lady in the photo a few posts above was having lunch with me. There was a sparkle in her eye. After a while, she said, "Am I gonna have to ask you to marry me?"

    Once. 21 years next week...thanks for the reminder. But I did pretend to be married a few times before so I can't be all haughty about it.

    After pretending and dating and not liking the results I was getting frustrated. I started listening to Moody radio (the human brain has massive capacity and I realized mine was filled with junk when I caught myself singing along and knowing all the lyrics to song I didn't even like) and heard Tony Evans, a pastor in Dallas, teaching on Genesis. He said God didn't make Adam go looking for a wife but brought her to him while he was sleeping.

    Sleeping...this is one of my areas of expertise. I decided then to quit asking girls out. I told my mom and I remember one of her friends telling me that plan wasn't going to work. I met several ladies that peaked my interest, including a certain one, but resisted the urge to pursue. Then one day she called and asked me to attend a rehearsal dinner with her. What was I doing when the call came? Napping.

    We dated 3 months, got engaged and were married a month later. She didn't ask me but it was pretty clear she was on board and was dropping hints. I wanted to have the ring first.

    Once. Together since 1994, which is more meaningful to us than the day we went to City Hall and did the paperwork.
