Personal Question - How many of you are divorced or remarried.

I was just wondering how many of you have been divorced? How many of you have been remarried? Was the second one better than the first? How many of you have been divorced more than twice? Please share your story with me. Thank you in advance.

I am. I was married to my ex for 7 years (together for 12 - since high school) and had a 2 year old son when we divorced 11 years ago. I have been remarried now for 7 years (to a man with 2 children of his own) and have had another child with him. Is it better? Absolutely. I think we both better knew what to expect from our marriage, and each other. We weren't going into it with rose coloured glasses on. We KNEW we would have our difficulties. But actually, we rarely fight or argue, which is great :D We are able to communicate better.

I was with my kids dad for 9 nine years, we were never really married but lived together for like 8 years. I have been married now to someone else for 2 years and it is totally different, but I would also chalk it up to age as well. One thing that I have learned is that jealously is NOT a good thing, my husband now is so not jealous and it is awesome, to not have to worry about "getting in trouble" if someone looks at me or talks to me, it is a great feeling! So ya for me this time around is way better!

I married my first husband when I was 19...
We had a rocky marriage..we tried to kill each other constantly.
He wandered away in Feb 1996...with his nose up another girl's butt.
I worked...lived with my best friend, split rent and bills with her for about three years. I met another man...Bodie...and he helped me come up with the money to pay for an uncontested divorce. My first husband was in Atlanta...last I knew, so we posted ads in the legal section of the Atlanta paper and I divorced him without his knowledge.
I married Bodie in May 1999. He had two kids...teenagers, a boy and a girl.
Bodie died in September 2007...COPD and Liver failure. (He smoked and drank himself to death....literally.) He dry-drowned...his body stopped taking CO2 out of his blood....he couldn't breathe. He was gone in half an hour.
So....I gave the kids the memories and treasures they wanted...and I sold the rest. I moved back to my home town and ran into my first husband again. We started 'dating' and fell in love all over again. (Did we ever really fall OUT of love?)
We found out we were pregnant in August 2008...and gave birth in April 2009.
We are NOT married again. We may NOT ever marry again. Something about that legal agreement that BOUND us together...tried to make us kill each other. We seem happier having different last names.
Maybe it keeps him on his toes somehow??? I don't know.
But I do know...there is something in the back of my head telling me NOT to do THAT again.
