perhaps yer kids, if ya have any. never been married, so i don't know. i do regret not getting married when i had the opportunity (was engaged). hope it works out for the best for you. maybe you will get back together after a little down time (or whatever its called).

Don't know about your case, but for me, it was the right thing to do. Hurt like hell, but I was forced to face some things about myself that I'd always been able to hide before.

Now, I look back on it as the push that led me to personal growth.

Do I regret it? Not a bit. Good luck. It's gonna suck for a while.

I always say I am happily divorced. It's the married ones who frown when I say it. They just don't understand!

Nope!! First one fell in love with some Internet douche second didn't know it wasn't ok to still talk romantically to your ex boyfriends..

Best thing I ever did was walk away from those adulterous whor3s...

Divorce sucks but if it's warranted then its the best thing when it's done.. Just do what I did and go climbing.. My second divorce this last may, I attended while soloing the prow.. Called in from pitch 6, hanging in my harness lol.. It was the only thing that could make me happy lol..

50 yrs old and I've never been married either! I've lost many a great gal, to what I would say is
honorability though. Marriage is a doctrine for a vow to commiting to become a family for the reason of procreation with a chosen spouse inwhich ur combined perspective will produce a better generated generation.

Without a vision to produce a growingly better loving future. The paper a marriage certificate ain't worth sh#t.

Marriage isn't rules, or laws written down on paper. It's the coherence between two hearts to combine inorder to procreate a baby so as to create a heart in ur offspring that is most admired by the parents. Idealistically.

Negotiating the terms of the divorce prior to marriage is good advice.

Sounds like good buisness. Doesn't sound like love.

Edit: Jstan, where'd ya go? I wasn't done with you yet ..

What I've regretted is getting involved in shitty relationships in the first place.

Done it twice. The first was my call, the second hers. Both were difficult; the second immensely painful (lost my marriage and business in the same day--we were partners). After the second divorce, I felt like I couldn't trust my own decision making.

They say it takes as long to get over a divorce and back healthy as you were married. (Ugh.)

Immediately after the second divorce, a close friend of mine told me two things that were told to him after his second divorce: (i) it couldn't have been any other way, and (ii) it was the best thing that could have happened. I cursed him violently, but six years later when I finally returned to being whole , I came to see . . . he was right.

No matter who did what, there's learning there for you. I think you have to get to that. That's the point of it all. If you don't get that, you'll return to the same place (or worse).

I had a practice lap. It was the best thing to split. I learned a lot and have had a good marriage with number two.

marriage is like climbing:

some people flash it

some people redpoint it

some people never get it

and some people like off widths

My three X wives...

Each was a VERY painful breakup...(Especially the second)

...

But after time has passed, I have to admit, seeing that they all sort of let themselves go???...

Well, it does ODDLY ease that pain a little...



I agree with what Mike L wrote when he said that after the second divorce, he found it hard to trust his judgment...

I can TOTALLY relate!!!...

Ditto!!!...




EDITED:

Fuk if X wife #3 isn't about two pounds from being the National Spokesperson for the Wal Mart...

You can see a HINT of her future in her arms...
