Since I've had my husband for over 20 years and my horse for only about 3, I'd have to chose my husband. I did vote for just getting along because my husband has his own horse and enjoys them just as much as I do.

IMHO Keep the horses, if it is your true love he will not make you choose!

I wouldn't wanna choose. I've had my horses for longer than my other half but I don't think that matters much for me. However, if he made me choose just because he felt like it..well that's rotten and he'd be gone.

I did choose the get along one though.

I don't think (At least I hope he wouldn't) Ryan would ever do that though! I think he enjoys playing with them with me. He seems pretty happy doing it considering they don't have gas engines...

I had my horses, gave them up (sort of) for a man and have always regretted it. Granted he turned out to be a very bad choice all around and because of him I would have had no choice but to sell them at a certain point anyway. But I hated myself for it for quite a while afterward and I would never get involved with a man again who would make me choose or put my horse life in danger in any way.

My thoughts exactly. My first true love was a horse so no man could ever take his place. Plus, I have had horses in my life since I was born and I don't know what I would do without them. Probably go nuts and end up in the looney bin. LOL

Totally depends on the reason it was said. Theres many many reasons why I'd chose a person over an animal. How long I've had horses would not play any part in it. If I thought it was a good reason to give them up would.

I don't have a horse, but I'd choose the man if it was a health issue, money, things like that. If he just didn't like them, he could get over it :)

I wouldn't choose a horse I loved above a person I love, I'm afraid. The latter is harder to come by and would give me a more meaningful relationship.

Oh, come on. Your human isn't your significant other if you're giving him up for a horse, is he? I cannot believe a horse would be the reason a couple would break up. One of the problems, yes. But not the sole reason a couple breaks up.

If you're talking about breaking up with a boyfriend or girlfriend because they don't share your interests in things like horses that's one thing. It's a whole 'nother thing to end a marriage, especially with children involved.

If you're spending so much time with your horses that your husband/boyfriend, etc., says you're spending obsessing then I think it's important to evaluate your behavior.

I doubt, though, that horses are commonly the sole cause of a relationship's end.
