Do second marriages work?

Would love to hear from people who have married a second time or divorced a second time
Second marriage is def the better IMO as I'm more mature.

First marriage ended up in divorce obviously as we were just to young.

So after the divorce we decided to get married again and it's ticketyboo

Well I certainly hope so as I'm marrying for the second time on FRIDAY!!

First marriage I was WAY, WAY too young and only stuck it out for the kiddos. This time, I followed my heart AND my head. 12 years older and wiser and loving every minute of it!

Mr. Siren had never been married before but close enough... 2 kids later the whole thing failed. Also a "too young to know better" situation.

If only 18 yr old kids could know what they would think when they were 30 there might be a lot less second marriages.

Good luck getting married on Friday , you will have to keep us posted .I tend to agree that people marry to young and don't really know who they are. We all change and grow , some together and some apart

I dont know about second marriages, I am still in my first.

My wife and I have been married 11 years this year, we were togeteher for ten years before that. I am now 40 she is 36. We have three lovely children, aged 7,4 & 3. I sincerely hope we are together forever, so does she. Strangely enough though, both our parents are in 2nd marriages.

If anything is going to cause a divorce, it'll be the house sale (or lack of it), tension or what!

i would love to take the credit for the pic June, but sadly its not my talents that created it...another member of the forum did it for me a long while ago.


As for the second marriages bit...i think that in our youth we tend to place far too much importance on the trivial things when looking for a partner....looks and physical attraction far outweigh the underlying basics needed for a successful relationship. We also have no real concept of what living inside a close structured relationship is either and all too often the reality is one hell of a shock, but how do you know until you've done it? Thats why the sensible among us look on a second chance at love in a whole new way...i know i did. Fancying someone is just not good enough anymore. Similar morals, likes, dislikes and attitudes to life are far more important.

May have something to do with the fact that we have been apart for 4 months
