I think it depends on the person- and what did they learn from it. My ex-husband cheated on me and left me for another woman. He is now re-married to a really nice girl. I just hope he learned to keep it in his pants.

@mrsedwardslpn: People have no idea what they are talking about. I’m my FI’s third marriage, and my dad’s also been married 3 times (my mom is his 3rd, and they’re celebrating 30 years!)
So, its all dependent on the man. Many learn from their past relationships, and are better able to determine what they want, how they feel, and what a marriage should be like.
And if anyone makes a snide remark about his previous wedding, just tell them he was practicing for you.

I don’t think there is anything wrong with marrying someone that was married before. The statistics are not in favor but there is also a lot of different circumstances.
50% of marriages end in divorce and 75% of second marriages end in divorce (mostly due to children present form previous marriage).
The truth is if it’s ment to be you will be together. If you both love eachother and always work together… statistics are nothing and you can enjoy marital bliss regardless of hardships.
My Fiance was married before and even though we had more then our share of drama coming from his ex and his children…. we are sticking together.

Second marriage for me, first for fiance. No kids, not now or ever. My dad was divorced when he married my mother, they’ve been together 35+ years and going strong. All my sisters are divorced, and their 2nd marriages are all 10+ years. Apparently my family figures out how to make marriage work after the starter one is done. If you’re both ready and you’re good together, it’ll work out.

Marrying someone who has been previously married. He always says it was his practice marriage, that they grew apart and that he liked being married, it just was to the wrong person. I have asked what he’d want to do differently this time around and he’s mulled it over and given me some good answers.

First marriage for me and second for him. I think he learned alot and we’ve been through marriage counseling and have discussed things that we need to work on. We want to make this work! Communication is key!!
