      It wasn't included because this poll is in honor of St. Valentine's Day (romantic love).
      Good choice, should've thought of it.

      There is a point when I would have chosen that myself (when my son was very young), but he just bought his first house and his girlfriend occupies far more of his time than I do. OTOH, my relationship with my wife remains consistent...

      Eeew

    It's 11 years for my wife and me, I can't help thinking about her every moment, even I m now in Canada while she's in my hometown China. She is my greatest love even in the future life. Good news is I will go back to reunite with her and our lovely son next month.

    Happy valentine's day everyone!

    23 years and counting and she’s still here.   Wow.

      In the name of those of us who are not so lucky as you are: Where is the option
      • my ex-girlfriend/boyfriend/wife/husband?

        If the question remains "The greatest love of my life is" instead of "The greatest love of my life was", I really pity you.

        I'm at 6745 days (18 y, 5 m, 18 d) now, and without a day of regret.


        Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn
        My significant other normally covers that.

    Out of all the weird/psychotic choices, "the Jets" is the one that sent chills down my spine.
      At the time I proposed the poll, the Jets were all the buzz in making the playoffs. That was in December... 8-)

      OTOH I know as much about American football as I do about playing bag pipes, which is to say nothing.

    9244 days for my wife and I. It helped that someone told me early on that marriage (and later, parenthood) would be easier to take if I just kept one thing in mind: nothing is ever going to be the same. Once you have digested that thought, it's really very easy.

    She passed away almost 20 years ago.
