Engaged. We're taking off on the cruise in November. We're planning to get married next year (probably December). Assuming the engagement survives.

I didn't want to get married before cruising, because I'd hate to get divorced after only 2 months. But if we survive the trip, we'll be able to survive anything!

That jibes well with the tone of all your posts here and is frankly amazing.

Sally and I have been married for 20 years and have been live aboard cruisers for the past 10 years. We have faced all the bad & good points together and have found the answers together. We wouldnt change our lives for ANYTHING.

Although this is a rather old post - it is important for those wanting to take on a partner for a long term cruising life to wait no less than a year before legally and morally being committed to the institution of marriage. The longer the better. But more importantly you need to share some significant periods of nasty weather and other unpleasant parts of the cruising lifestyle. And there are a number of them.
- - If you as a couple can weather the adverse times on board a cruising boat and not kill each other then there is a good chance you will join the ranks of the few really amazing couples that live together on a boat 24/7/365/++ years.
- - Living full time and cruising as compared to life on land is a dramatic and extremely fulfilling existence - adding a life-partner who is completely in tune with your life and the life on a long term cruising boat is a treasure beyond comprehension. And it does happen - there are hundreds out there doing it.

Married 34 years. Cruised for 3 years during the winter (6 mo) and lived in the mountains the other 6 months. For me it was ideal, but my wife says she has no desire to use another bath house or visit another laundrymat. So the boat is for sale but we had a fabulous time and glad we did it!!

Now that's a GREAT idea. Keep me posted, I'll be ready for the assisted living marina in 2031.

Rusty and I have been married 9 years (second marriages, children grown) and have bareboat chartered most of those 9 years. We "tried" sailing the Bahamas for 6 mths and loved it. Came home in July, have sold the "big house" and plan to leave in late November. How long? Who knows? The plan is not to have a schedule.

Chris and I have been together for eighteen years, married for twelve of those...started sailing together three years ago. Hope to be cruising soon. We lived in a 27 foot RV together for four months back in 1992...some of the best times of our life looking back.

We have remodeled two houses together and a boat...been through some great times and some really challenging times...we're still here.

We haven't always taken the prescribed path and I think we are both better for it.

I hope that cruising is something we both love and feel comfortable doing. It scares me to think that one of us might love it and the other not, and then what?!? But that is a fleeting thought because we really met on the water and it is where we both love to be and play...

Here's to the rest of our lifetime's together Chris, and making them count!

Been married 4 years, first for me, second for him, in our first year we bought a house, fixed a house up, sold a house, moved across the country to be closer to the ocean, bought our first boat a 22 foot Tanzer even though neither of us had ever sailed before and learned to sail. Fast forward three years - we spent 10 days chartering in BVIs (the longest we have ever been on a boat) and now in October we will move aboard our new-to-us 28.5 Hunter for two months, if we survive the trip and living so closely to each other, we plan to try and cruise in the winters and work in the summer until we can sell up and go permanently. Did I mention my husband is 11 years younger than me? Yep am 42 he is 31....so see sometimes your soulmate is out there you just got to wait till they are old enough to marry you...
