Separated 2010

Divorced 2013

Remarried 2014


So just a year between divorce and remarriage but really 4 years from living apart from ex (we were married for 20 years).  I think there is no rule, just good to have some time to reflect on what has happened in a relationship that ended before starting and commiting to something new. My husband (also 2nd time around after 20 year 1st marriage) and I often say we are consciously working on doing it better this time around.

  • Wedding: October 2015

My ex and I were separated for about 5 months when I met my SO. We finally got divorced 8 months after being separated and I will be getting remarried 9 months after divorce. So total…about a year and a half from separation date!

Husband #2 = Dated – Feb. 1996-2002. Married – July 2002-Present. Been together for 19 years married for 13 years. We met night before my divorce was final and 1 week before his was final. Found exactly what we were looking for.

  • Wedding: May 2016 - Ever After Banquet Hall

My situation is a little different. My first husband passed away in July of 2013. We had gotten married at 19, had some rough spots, but were married for 19 years. I was only 38 when I became a widow. I started “dating” (if you can call it that….really I joined match.com just to see what was out there and only went on a few dates) about 9 months after his death. I really just wanted something to do other than sit at home with our teenage kids. I was only 38 for crying out loud. I felt like I still had a lot of life left in me and I didn’t want to waste it. Does that make sense?

My Fiance had been separated from his wife for about 5 months when we met. His divorce was supposed to be finalized last August, but she messed it up (something to do with filing for assistance) and it got pushed to November. He proposed to me 2 weeks after it was final.

By the time we get married, it will have been almost 3 years since my first husband died, and 2 1/2 since he and his wife separated.
