    My first marriage was because of pregnancy (trying to do the right thing) and we did for 16 years but we knew it was only for the children. We have two amazing sons. Two years after my divorce, my second marriage was due to going through financial struggles and he was willing to...

    Married Many Times...

    You guys are mere amateurs, I've been married 6 times.  I call it serial monagamy.  The funny thing is, I wasn't even married to the man I lived with the longest, he and I made it nearly 10 years.  After my last divorce at the age of 55, I finally got it through my...

    Married 4 Times and Counting

    My experience with being married four times is that it is usually better not to tell anyone that you have been married more than twice because they automatically assume something is wrong with you. i had one girl say that if she met a guy that had been married more than twice...

    I Feel Like I Have Been Married Six Times

    My first two marriages we're unfulfilling to say the least.  My husbands practiced infidelity as a matter of course.  The relationships were crazy weird as well.  I didn't learn to get to know my boyfriends well before starting a relationship and it backfired on me with a...
