Wow, divorced after only a few months?? That sucks!!

The divorce rate is terrifying. I can only say make sure you are getting married for the right reasons, and when things get tough have faith you will both WORK at it unlike a lot of couples.

Actually if you look at it another way, your engagement and upcoming wedding may give the family some much needed ‘happy’ time and something good to focus on..

I agree with @Angkinah:  Plus you will have a while before you need to pick your wedding party, giving the open wounds time to heal. Good luck!

@Angkinah:  i agree.

 

@EffieTrinket:  wow, that’s a lot of divorces at once and only a couple of months??  ouch.  when do you plan on getting married?  i’m sure that time will help with the pain of divorce.  you don’t have to pick your bridal party immediately out of the gate.  wait to see how everyone is dealing with the stress of divorce and acceptance / support of your upcoming nuptuals.

I noticed a lot of relationships ending when Fiance and I first became engaged.  It’s crazy, but these are people who have had problems from the beginning.

@Rouquine:  +1

I love it when people ask me why I’m getting married because we’ll probably end up divorced anyway. Usually those people are divorced. Sorry, but I think you can always tell that your marriage isn’t going to work out, and I don’t have that feeling (and haven’t for the past 4 years).

@vorpalette:  Wow! People say that to you? That’s terrible!

I think people give up way to easily. Even though I’m not even engaged yet, I would fight for our relationship. I know a lot of bitter people who are married. It’s sad, really. People jump into and out of marriage too soon.

OP, I’d try not to worry too much about everything. You may get a few bitter words, but know that they really are happy for you.

@memo:  Yep. Two guys at work (both divorced) have asked me that several times. A third asked me why the rush (after I told him that our engagement was a year and a half) because he’d been engaged to his fiancee for NINE YEARS. Um, because I’d like to get married and not just sit there with a ring on my finger? And have kids soonish? Apparently they also want to have kids and she just turned 40. That’s fantastic, but I’d like to have kids before I turn 30.
