    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

    Divorced Again ~

    I've been divorced twice and both times the shock of it all nearly killed me.  After my first divorce I swore I'd never get married again but fate and love took over.  At 30 I married the sweetest most talented man in the world until seven years later his substance...

    Divorced Twice By The Age Of 30

    I just turned 31. I've been married and divorced twice. My dad left when I was 12, and i never really had a good relationship with him. I'm not sure if maybe that has something to do with my failure of relationships or not.  My first marriage was when I was pretty young. I was...

    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...

    Me Too!

    I got married at 20, had two boys and divorced at 29 because my ex had an affair with his secretary. He tried to come back after she dumped him, but it was too late. I was too hurt and couldn't forgive him. I spun out of control, partying and trying to stay busy. I had to have...

    I always feel so embarrassed about it.

    I married two different people, both of whom I knew I shouldn't be marrying. I just felt like I was in too deep to get out of it. My first husband was horribly abusive. When I finally got free of him, I found out I was pregnant. So now I'm stuck dealing with him for 12 more...

    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...

    My first marriage is a blur. I have a hard time remembering those days. Bits and pieces come back to me now and then and I remember not really even liking my husband before we were married. It's really a long story that I may type out sometime, but not now. The short version...

    It's Not My Fault!!!

    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...
