    It's Not My Fault!!!

    I have a tendency to address problems or disagreements in relationships using this rule: if there is a problem, figure out who is at fault, discuss it, apologize, and get over it.  Because of that, I always looked at the problems in my marriages by trying to fairly...

    But I am ever the optimist lol.

    I am old fashioned and want to be with someone forever, but unfortunately both times it has been beyond my control. My first marriage ended because I lost my mother and totally went off my head, and didn't try hard enough, and the second time he was a completely abusive moron...

    I am thinking about divorcing my second husband

    but I am afraid of the stigma attached to being divorced twice. I worry about how it will affect me and my grown children to know that their mom just can't figure out how to get it right

    Don't Know How To Live With The Social Stigma...

    I got married when I was 21... I knew I shouldn't have married him but we had been living together (oh, the horror!) and it was expected. Next, it was expected that we would have a family and we did -- two amazing boys I love very much, but the relationship didn't survive. I...

    Divorced Twice Is a Social Stigma

    Just dealt with second divorce. My first marriage failed because he hid the fact that he had drinking habit and second one due to his mother's harassing nature and he hid that he was not potent. Can you please guide me that how to identify a person. People hid facts and...
