@Kel_ster:  I’m a second time bride marrying my first time groom. I couldn’t have been more excited to change my status on Facebook. People will always judge, but it’s your life, and what matters is you and your fiance.

@Kel_ster:  You have nothing to be ashamed about with regards to your previous marriage. If anything, you are to be commended for being able to leave when you did. Hold your head up high! Announce your engagement when you feel ready to do so, and to hell with anyone who has anything negative to say.

@Kel_ster:   Please don’t worry what others think – you cannot control what anyone else thinks.  Enjoy your happiness and your special day!!  And congratulations!  I’m so happy you found someone who appreciates you and treats you well.  I’m an encore bride, my divorce was a long time ago but also after a short, abusive marriage.  My gratitude at finding a kind man with whom my heart is safe knows no bounds.  🙂

There is no shame in being an encore bride. And no shame in only a short marriage. You recognised your ex for the abusive brute that he was, and you left him. There is no shame in that.

Tell the world how happy you are to be marrying the wonderful man that you have. And enjoy every moment of it!

@Kel_ster:  I’m a first time bride marrying a second time groom also with an 8 month first marriage. No one has been judgemental at all :-).

@Kel_ster:  My brother remarried and I didn’t see negative comments when he and his fiancee announced their engagement on facebook. Far from it! It was all positive.

p.s. I assume you’re telling the very closest people (like immediate family) personally – facebook is too impersonal a place to hear about the engagement of your own sibling, child or parent.

@Kel_ster:  DH is a 2nd time groom. They separated after less than a year. Everyone at the wedding, even the ones that had been at his first, were so happy to see him so happy. The people that love you wont judge you. They just want whats best for you. So shout your engagement from the roof top!

Just wanted to say that I was an encore bride and it was DH’s first weddinge (we also have a similar age differece to you).  No one made me feel bad at all- in fact everyone was super happy and supportive.  Good luck!

My FI and I are both in our 40’s and both encores…we told immediate family and close friends first, and then blasted it on Facebook. 🙂 We got nothing but well wishes! Do whatever you’re comfortable with…and CONGRATULATIONS! 🙂
