    Quoted from DanQverymuch:

    2009: married, 3 pins
    2016: widower, 30 pins
    Nowadays, scaled back to a dozen.

    similar for me. only had a single pin while married, 2014:widower, currently own 20 pins.

    3 kids, 1 dog (great dane, so basically kid #4) only one kid still at home, but he is 18 and graduating high school in a few weeks!! (wooohoooo)

    condolences to the others that have lost spouses, was married to a very wonderful woman for 24 years, that totally accepted my two speeds, balls to the wall or not at all. so was very supportive of ALL of my hobbies. Would give up everything to have her back.

    Quoted from jawjaw:

    No pins when I was married with triplets. Even if bug bit me,
    not much money back then. Widowed in 2011 and started collecting
    few years later. Easy to build up a collection when it just me and
    the kids. No idea how you married guys get away with spending that
    kind of money on pins.

    I'm sorry for your loss, I cant imagine life without my wife.

    As far as spending, I just make sure she and or the kids are happy, then I'm good to buy another. She recently wanted a Dolly Parton, which I bought for her. I try to keep everyone happy when it comes to this hobby.

    Quoted from parsonsaj:

    Married for 3rd and last time. 3 pins also. Might rotate the 3rd one frequently.

    Rotate which one? The pin or the wife?

    What should not be said to a girl? If you are trying to have a perfect date, to achieve the girl’s desire to meet you again, then it is better to learn the themes which you should not start at the first stages of acquaintance. Use this knowledge during dating, why not to find out more? The same thing is important for online dating. This rule works even better here. You have to do your best to move the internet acquaintance to a real-time meeting level.

    Married going on 18 years, one pin that I bought with her on our 2nd date. One daughter, 2 cats, a boat, and a major house reno. After the house and dock are done, will add another pin or so.

    Where's the option for was Married but Widowed? I guess I don't count … ;(

    Edit never mind I see I have a lot of company here in this regard. Pinball is fun but also would give them all away and then some to have her back!
