    Learned A Lot

    I learned after getting married ( the first time) that my husband was into drugs and eventually became an alcoholic. He was verbally and mentally abusive. After 8 years I found the courage to leave. Second marriage was good but we both made mistakes that we could not fix. He had...

    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...
