Ale, you inspired me..

As I know that my darling wife doesn´t like publicity, I cannot share the exact dates with you.

We first met about <30 years ago. Married nearly 25 years.

My parents first met September XX 196X. Married nearly <55 years. (The parents of my wife nearly since 60 years.)

There isn´t the place for all my ancestors, so I give you an impression of the paternal stock from father to father (bloodline, line of our surname who was first mentioned in a document in 1224.)

As far as I know it by heart:

Paternal grandparents first met May 1 1937, married (oo) about 1940 (Not sure whether my Dad wants to make it public.)

Great grandparents met 1906, oo January XX 1907

Next generations: November 10 1875, October 04 1840, May 10 1814, August 7 1787, February 22 1756, February 1725, 1694, February 4 1659, 1627, 1599, 1565.....................

Feel free to add! Would be very interesting.

An addendum for people who are interested in history and longest terms of knowing each other before marrying:

My paternal great-great-grandparents who married 1875 (see above) were first cousins. This happened sometimes in families who were not the poorest ( f.e. in Calment-family). In former times one had to keep one´s resources in one hand.

So they knew each other since the birth of the bride in 1856 as the daughter of the personal doctor (in German Leibarzt. There is no special word for the exclusive doctor of a highest noble person.) of HH The Reigning Prince of Liechtenstein, Duke of Troppau und Jägerndorf and Count of Rietberg. Her husband was born in 1843.

I’ve been married for just over 32 years.

Clearly my wife Janne is a very tolerant lady.😀

It is great to read in your family-history.

Weal and woe are neighbours. Hopefully English speaking people can understand what I´m meaning. Joy and sorrow are next o one and another.

Marco, I feel very saddened when I read of May 1944... RIP.

A point very well made stoa-oid.

Those absolutely horrific and tragic times were not really that long ago and we should always remember the innocent victims. RIP

My parents were never married; I was the result of a short relationship between my mother and my father, who was 11 years younger. They split up when I was a baby and both have since married new partners.

Maternal Grandfather's Parents: Married from November 1931 (then aged 29 and 24) to 7 May 1960, when Great-Grandad died of a heart attack at 57. (28 years)

Paternal Grandfather's Parents: Married from 1 June 1943 (then aged 29 and 18) to ? - can't find death dates for either of them.

Maternal Grandmother's Parents: Married from 1938 (then aged 20 and 17) to October 1994 when Great-Grandma died. (56 years)

I am totally keen how much dates you know and how long they go back in the past.

Maybe it is the begin of your personal ancestor research. The curiosity knowing more and more. Here in Austria we do have a very good source situation due (Catholic) parish records who started during or shortly after the Council of Trent (1545-1563). Not all of them are unfortunately obtained.

Before these records were written one can find documents belonging possessions.

This is one of my favourite hobbies since 1984 with the help of my grandparents. I extended old pedigrees which existed in our family. I also found new things when I was a child.

Genealogy is an ancillary discipline of history a n d of validating SCs. Maybe this is a wake-up-call for you to start your own family research.

My wife and I were married on 9 March 1991 in Waipawa in Central Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand. We’re still going strong and have two daughters aged 28 and 27.

My mum and dad were married on 9 November 1961 in Halifax, Yorkshire, England and the marriage finished when my mum passed away on 17 Dec 2008 in New Zealand.

My paternal grandparents were married in late 1928 in Hebden Bridge, Yorkshire, England and divorced in 1947, so circa 19 years.

My maternal grandparents were married in Opunake in the province of Taranaki in New Zealand in July 1908 and the marriage ended in 1930 when my grand mother passed away from a badly poisoned tooth at just 42.

Noting stoa-oid's interest above I can go back further, but only on the direct paternal line.

 

1. My great grandfather Joseph Redman married my great grandmother Annie Greenwood in October 1896. 

2. My 2 X great grandfather George Redman married my 2 X great grandmother Elizabeth Walton in Heptonstall, Yorkshire (my ancestral village) - date not known. 

3. My 3 X great grandfather John Redman married my 3 X great grandmother Hannah Greenwood (not sure where - but highly likely in Heptonstall), on 2 November 1817. 

4.  My 4 X great grandfather (also) John Redman married my 4 X great grandmother Jenny Greenwood in Heptonstall, on 27 December 1791. 

5. My 5 X great grandfather Simeon Redman married my 5 X great grandmother Hannah Spencer in Heptonstall, on 14 January of either 1751 or 1752 (two dates conflict). 

6. My 6 X great grandfather Thomas Redman married my 6 X great grandmother Martha Greenwood in Heptonstall, on 19 June 1715. 

7. My 7 X great grandfather Simeon Redman married my 7 X great grandmother Martha Widdope in Heptonstall, in July 1689. 

8. My 8 X great grandfather William Redman married my 8 X great grandmother Mary Jackson in Heptonstall, on 23 May 1650.

9. My 9 X great grandfather Symeon Redman - don't know who he married.

10. My 10 X great grandfather  Jonas Redman married my 10x great grandmother Sally Wortley on 25 September 1578.

11. My 11 X great grandfather Robert Redman married my 11 X great grandmother Mary Maria Tayler (not sure where), I believe in circa 1554.

12. My 12 x great grandfather (also) Robert Redman (born 1510) don't know who he married.

That as far back as I've managed to trace to date. The Redmans came to Yorkshire in the 1100s and I can trace a few generations down from there - but I have  about a 250 year gap from there to Robert in 1510.

For me, getting a girlfriend or getting a relationship partner, or getting married is the most difficult and unrealizable thing in the universe. Even reaching the age of 125 is much easier.

Especially people living East Asia countries like South Korea, Japan, North Korea, and China are conservative... plus recent covid-19 pandemic, etc. That's make the situation more worse.

@record_116 I am sorry to hear this. Nowadays it seems to be more difficult for the younger generation to find a good partner. I am observing this phenomenon in the cohort of my daughter. You can be sure to find somebody sooner or later. You will see. The less you are searching the more you will find;-).
