    Been Divorced Twice By Age 34.....

    I am now 34 and I have been divorced twice. The first time I was 20 and had a baby. I was young, not in love and thought 1. I had no choice and 2. I couldn't do any better. Heck, who would want someone with a child. He was a momma's boy and we ended up moving into an apartment...

    Keeping My Head Held High...

    I had a child out of wedlock when I was 20. Father was never really interested in my son's life, let alone interested in child support. I met someone a couple years later, and got married a few years after. We were in our early twenties. I wanted it to last. Due to his infidelity...

    I'm Divorced But This Time I'm So Lost ...

    The first time I was married I was 20, and I thought I knew everything. Looking back, I know I was too stupid to even realize I was alive. But I got married anyway because stupidity isn't a reason to keep people from being married. After we'd been married 2 years, we had a son...

    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
