Random realization today, not sure why, but it occurred to me that not a single one of my ex’s (serious or casual fling/brief encounters) have gotten married yet. Is that odd? Does that say something about me, I mean do you think I ruined them lol? Or did I really have exceptionally bad taste in men?? They are all over 25 now…it just surprises me.
ETA; my mistake, one has, about 2 months ago.

People are getting married later and later in life. I’m sure it honestly has nothing to do with you and everything to do with whether they’re ready or not yet. I don’t believe any of mine are married, either.

yep, all of mine are in between 25 and 30 and none of them are married. in fact, one of them went to jail a couple months after we broke up (eek!).
the other two are in med school, so maybe that explains it?
none of husband’s exes are married either, and some of them STILL contact him… UGH! 🙂

Ah, so glad I am not the only one! For some reason it really hit me strangely to think that. I can only think of one who I had a really messy breakup with (the one who married a couple months ago). Though as PP said, people are marrying later in life, and if I really think about it I guess I’m an example lol, I’m 32 marrying for the first time!

One of my exes had already been married and divorced by the time he was twenty, but that’s not surprising because during the two months we were together, he managed to cheat on me with over thirty women and one man. I don’t think he really counts.
Other than him, the guy I dated after he had already been divorced once, and one guy I had a month-long fling with, everyone else is single. I agree with jocember; it probably has little to do with us and everything to do with how late in life people get married these days. Also, like MissDareDevil, a couple of my exes are pursuing further education, so that probably has a lot to do with it.

I have to say, my sense of failure at the fact that my ex-husband left me has been ameliorated considerably by the fact that fifteen years after the divorce, he has not remarried and has not had a relationship that lasted more than a year or two. My twenty-year relationship with him is by far the longest anyone has been able to stay with him.

I am pretty sure it will be a LONG time before any of my ex’s will get married. They WANTED to get married (thay actually all proposed to me) but they weren’t ready and wont be for quite some time. All are older than me (31). Oh except for my sons dad, he got married like 1 1/2 months after we broke up and divorced right after…yeah he wasn’t ready and has had a gf for 5 years and says he never wants to marry her ( to his friends not me)

One of my 3 ex’s married recently. The guy I dated before my Fiance will likely get married one day, but he is the type to take things real slow. The last guy (my highschool sweetheart) will probably never get married lol.

None have mine have either. And most of them aren’t going anywhere either. Just makes me realise how right I was to move on.
One ex has had two children, but both were “mistakes”.

None of my exes beyond high school have gotten married. In fact two moved back in with their parents soon after we broke up (one recently turned 40 too….glad I missed that boat!).

@Take The Reins: Same here! I always date older men, so my ex’s are all 25-36 now. One of them had a baby with a gf, one was in a very serious relationship (and possibly might be married?) but as far as I know, I am still the first one. It’s strange.

out of the 3 long term serious boyfriend i’ve had before Darling Husband only one is married and has a baby. He was my first boyfriend ever (8th grade -11th grade) so i was super excited for him! his baby is freaking adorable!
My most recent ex (before DH) has a pattern of getting girls married off haha. I swear…myself and the two girlfriend before me all got married to the person they dated after him. strange!

I have 6 exes ages 22-30 and none are married yet. However 2 have kids and 1 is in a really serious relationship with a great gal.
The oldest one is weird, though. I dated him like, 8 years ago and he hasn’t been with anyone since me. Bizarre. I don’t think I “ruined” him, I think he’s just a really boring guy, lol. That’s the reason I left.
He did get a little crazy stalker-ish when I first left, though…

I find it funny that one of my exes, who is hell bent on finding a wife, has yet to have a relationship last more than a month after we broke up for the last time. Before we stopped talking to each other altogether, he would love to tell me about his new girlfriend whenever he got one. It got to the point where me and a couple of my friends would playfully place pretend bets on how long it would last. I really wish him the best, but he said none of them match up to me, so I take that to be a compliment. 🙂

@imageeksowhat: That sounds like a movie that came out awhile back. I remember from the commercials the guy got a reputation that every girl he slept with would find her husband soon after being with him. Never saw it, but what you said reminded me of it.
