Ladies who have been divorced and did not have children with your first husbands, how old were you when you remarried? How long did you date for before becoming engaged? And lastly, if you had children with your second husband, how old were you?
Being 30, I’m really not looking to waste my time on men who are going to waste my time but you have to date around to find the right guy. And in turn, waste your time on some frogs. I don’t want to waste another three years of my life but I’m scared once I meet someone, they are going to waste my time. Now that I’m older, I feel like if they don’t know if they want to get married after a year, I need to move on. I don’t have many ways of meeting people so I’m pretty pessimistic and in a slump right now. Ladies, tell me your great stories of meeting man #2!

JazzyGirl85: Well here’s a positive story.
While I was never legally married, I was with my son’s dad for 6 years. After we split, the thought crossed my mind that I might want to get married someday, but with my son + work being my whole life, and me being 32….and I was like “well…..that might never happen, oh well”
I started a new job right around then- and that’s when I met my husband. We didn’t even really work at the same time for the first 5-6 months I was there, so we saw each other in passing. He’s hard to get to know– he’s one of the friendliest people you will ever meet, he’s just not super open at first.
Long story short, I took a risk and asked him to hang. 9.5 months later we were engaged, and 4.5 months later we were married. It’s our one year anniversary next month, and we have a baby due in January.
Never in a million did I think I’d meet someone, and never in two million did I think I’d be married with a baby on the way right now!!
Because we were both slightly older than the average, we knew ourselves well, and knew what we wanted. I am now 34 and he is 35. Because we knew what we wanted, we saw no reason to draw the whole thing out.

I got married at 19, divorced at 24, and remarried at 26. My husband was my first date in more than six years and I knew he was perfect from the get go. I made him wait two years before getting engaged just to make sure we were in it for the long haul.
There is life after divorce!

I remarried at 35, 4 years after my divorce. I got pregnant 3 months after the wedding.
My DH is a former co-worker who I’d been friends with for years.
Never give up hope! You are never too old to find love.
ETA: We dated a little over a year before we got engaged, and married 6 months after that. I found out I was pregnant on our two-year anniversary.

I’ll be 29 when SO get married next year. I was 23 when I got married and divorced at 24. SO was 29 when he got married and 31 when hey divorced. He’ll be 36 when we marry. We met online when I decided to seriously start looking. I was in a serious relationship before SO but after my ex. SO and I talked of a future within 2 months of dating because neither if us wanted to waste our time. We were on the same page so here we are!

I got married the first time at 27. Divorced 12 years later. I was 42 when I married the love of my life. I have known him since I was 18. We were together a year and a half when he proposed and we got married about a year and a half after that.
Marriage is absolutely wonderful with the right person. I feel so blessed to have gotten this chance to be with him.
