Today, I called my dad to tell him my boyfriend had proposed to me, and that we're planning on being married this summer. He was surprised at the short engagement, so I said, "Well, we're almost 30." Dad replied, "Wow, I left your mom when I was 35!" So not the conversation for that information, Dad. FML
I agree, your life sucks 27 696

My Parents were divorced by the time they were 26. Congratulations!

Based on his inability to determine appropriate versus inappropriate comments, I advise you not to let your Dad have the microphone to say a toast at your wedding reception.

i didn't know patents could marry...does this make you a patent-let?

my parents died in a car crash... fml;(

So the FML is that her boyfriend proposed to her but her dad said something akward? That sure does suck.

my parents split when I was 2 months. also....WHO APPROVED THIS....of course the dads gonna say somethin other than a happy congradulations. Don't all dads do???

this is a nasty fml. it doesn't stay on topic. it went from IM GETTIN MARRIED to I LEFT HER WHEN I WAS 35!!!! ........I don't see the point to this fml

The point is that instead of being happy for his daughter, he had to be a buzzkill and talk about when he divorced because of his age at the time of the divorce being so close to the age she is now/when she is getting married.

my parents divorced at 27 and 29 but I came along at mums 31 u do the math

my parents haven't been divorced and they been married for 21 years

obviously they're not divorced if they're married

the parents of a friend of mine were divorced but remarried a few years later.

My parents are married for 14 years! Whoopdee damn doo for me. Why do we care how many years your parents were married??

actually it gets pretty complicated at times if they are divorced, or seperated or whatever

My parents have been married or 15 years, but when my mom was showing me an email,I saw an email from my dad titled "Divorce agreement". :((

so not the conversation for that information? huh? what the hell does that mean???

Really. You didn't already know this? FYL for being 30 and just finding out your parents are divorced. Congratulations though!

I don't get this one at all either. the op is probably one of those people who think everything is is fml worthy

maybe a thanks should have been in there... So, thanks, not for the...

I don't think it's the "so" as the conjunction between two clauses but the adverb "so" to show emphasis, especially in an informal context like this one. i.e.) That was SO not cool.

I think it is more likely the OP didn't know how old her parents were at the time of their divorce, if she knows their ages at all.

Kill him by the time he turns 35, that way he won't be able to divorce you~!

it's just one of those 'oh akward let's nit talk about that' kind of things -.-

people stop marrying people cause it's a huge amount of money in the dump. Spouses FTW

Probably because you don't seem to be able to comprehend spelling and grammar.

Short engagement -> quick divorce. You might even beat your dad's record.
