Well, I've been married twice and neither worked out. The first one I met when we were both 18. Didn't work out because he joined a cult (sadly, I'm not kidding). Second one I met when I was 23 and he was 31. Didn't work out because he developed a drug and alcohol problem. I have finally met the man who is my "third time's the charm", met him a year ago when I was 35 and he was 40. Older and wiser, and definitely making better choices! :)

The vast majority of folks who are over 50 and married have been with the same person for quite some time which is comprehensible to much of today's youth.

I don't think age really has anything to do with it. I know a guy in his 80s that is into computers and every other gadget out there, and then I know some that are still trying to figure out their cell phone. Some people are into electronic gizmos and gadgets and others are not. I am part of the young generation and I don't really care for most of the stuff out there besides my computer. I know a lot of grandparents and parents who are into computers and such, it is just if they care enough to learn or not.

WOW at the seriousness this took on. Like I said, not ALL. My parents and in laws aren't into the social media age. They would have no problem with me saying that. They would prefer not to as the decline of actual social skills has taken a toll. My grandmother, however, is. I actually do not use tweeter or Facebook and I am a 'young adult'. This was not meant as criticism. Just a statement that things are different now. Quite frankly, I liked it better before cell phones and the internet took over. People weren't so easily offended and didn't take a simple comment to extreme. Talk about narrow minded.

My parents are mid-50's and the exact same way. My dad just learned how to text and he types full paragraphs that take 15 minutes for him to type out on that tiny keyboard. My husband's parents are mid 40's and are super into technology, though. I don't know if it's the 10 years that make the difference or just the personality type.

I. am only in my 30s, but was in my 20s when texting first started, and I have always made a point of typing out every word. Not because I don't know what the idiotic lingo is, but because I have respect for the english language. Most of my friends love it. And you actually get pretty fast at it once you've been doing it for a while. At least your parents will retain their vocabulary and communication skills.

If you actually READ and COMPREHENDED the question, you would realize that 50 people may very well have answered the question. The highest percentage is "Young Adult", and that might have been people 50 who answered that they met their spouse when they were "Young Adults." Furthermore, I highly doubt your parents are representative of the entire 50 population. I know professors that are well into their 80's that are just as technologically advanced as anyone, if not more so.

My mom and step-dad are over 50 and are always having me or my siblings help them figure out their technology. My sister got my mom a tablet and she almost cried cause she knew she wouldn't be able to work it. She can work it now, but I went through and did all the settings for her. Pretty much all the older people I know have issues. It's excruciating to watch old people try to type, they go so slow. And when I helped old people with the computers at work it was all I could do to not grab the keyboard and mouse and go "omg you've worked this program 3 times a week for the last 4 years how do you not know where to go?!" My dad, however, is 54 and does great with technology. So all you getting offended, you're the minority.

Also, I forgot to say that it's pretty weird that "old people" can't type, since typewriters have been around for like 150 years and they even used to teach typing in school. My ancient (if 50 is old) 70something mother could probably type faster than I could if let loose to type up a letter. She used to be the secretary of the president of huge world-famous company. I never learned to type but I can go fairly fast just by practice. It still ain't no thang compared to the people who grew up with typewriters. And usually i just do lazy one-handed. No matter what I try, I'll bet a 60-70something typist could beat me.

Some people just aren't tech-savvy, and it doesn't have to do with age. You're just too young to realize that you're stereotyping. My sister and I are fairly close in age and she can't remember how or figure out how to do much with the computer. You just have to be willing to try and experiment, and put some time in. Some people don't have the time or inclination to do that---but that's less likely to happen in the case of younger people, since they are largely influenced by their peers and the desire to fit in. Also, your parents may just be more freaked out about experimenting with the tech items because they're the ones paying the price when they get messed up or broken.

Indeed, that was a truly immature comment for a 60-year-old. The fact is that older people are *in general* not tech-savvy. You can always find exceptions--my aunt, who used computers before I did, would be 82 if she were alive today. But it's ridiculous to think that all, or even most, 82-year-olds would be tech-savvy. The reason she was is that she began doing data processing work in the late 1950's.

There's nothing wrong with making the assumption that most older people aren't into technology, because it's true. Taking offense when you're an exception to the rule is just silly. For instance, I hate country music, but I live in a rural area where most people like it. So I'm certainly not going to get all bent out of shape when someone assumes I like country music, because I'm in the minority. Reacting like that makes a person look like a colossal boor.

I agree!! Saying "I OWN you, my generation and before me INVENTED you" is over the top and very dramatic. First of all slavery is in the past thanks to laws against that which I'm sure elvisfreak "invented" those too. Also ur not God or every young person's parent so you can't go throwing the words "invented you" around. I just got done reading all the comments & it's funny to me how people were so hurt and resented the comment that started all of this bc it was generalization but a lot of the comments I read was generalizing our generation. So it's ok for u to do that but not anyone else? Very hypocritical! No wonder so many in our generation is messed up...look at the people who raised them...had no role models. It's amazing to me that people could see & comprehend "MET" in the poll question but apparently couldn't see & comprehend "ALL" in the harmless comment that started this whole mess.

There seems to be quite a few daily polls lately that could easily skew one way or another based on a given demographic of those answering. This question, as an example, would potentially show a much different chart if all who answered were over 50; in contrast, two options would be completely irrelevant if all who answered were under 30. Of course the daily poll isn't a scientific study, but something so dependent on unmarked variables couldn't show anything accurately.

I don't view 35 as a young adult...but hey, married 10 years with a kid, glad to know I'm still consider 'young'. I was 18, freshmen in college. Life was Good then, life's good now.

Regarding the over 50 question, my grandma was over 50 when she met her new husband. My mother in law's current husband was over 50 when he met her. So those 'older' do still meet and get married.
