  • They didn't say you have to be divorced, though, did they. She can sleep in the guest room, honey.
  • That's really not the take-away at all. You will by definition have a second marriage at a later and more mature age than you will your first.

    Show me a couple who marry for the first time at 30 years of age, and I'll show you a couple happier and more stable than one on their second marriage at 23.
  • OR dont marry the first girl you talk to.
  • Both of my parents were married once before they got married. They celebrated their 29th anniversary this year. Good for them but it has me somewhat worried... I've got a woman I love more than anything, a woman I'm planning on proposing to soon. It shakes my confidence.

    This also means accepting that people begin to develop sexual needs at puberty and not forcing them into marriages when they just wanna boink. I'm looking at you, religious people.
  • My wife is my second. I did divorce the first one before I married my wife though. SO very glad I divorced my ex; it was the second best decision I've made in my life... the best was marrying my current wife.

    So if you have the opportunity to marry an awesome and sane gymnast after divorcing your crazy ex... give it some serious consideration. It worked out incredibly well for me.
  • As someone currently in love with two women, I'm getting a pair of kicks out of this...

    She's already cheating on you.

    How old are you and your almost-betrothed? If you're 18, you should be worried. If you're pushing 30, don't worry so much.

    Hell, my father and my mother both got married twice, but I'm still on my first marriage, and we just celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary (20 years together total). Honesty and maturity go a *LONG* way to keeping a marriage together.

    Sane. Gymnast. Excuse me while I go laugh myself senseless for a bit.

    With me, no less. ;)
  • Nurglitch: As someone currently in love with two women, I'm getting a pair of kicks out of this...


    Fundamentally, if you were really in love with the first, you wouldn't have fallen in love with the second. That or you may be confusing love with wanting to bone someone. No, I don't buy polyamorous relationships at all. They're never truly equitable.

    Who said they were equitable? I've been in that situation too. I'm fortunate to have ended up with the best one, and realized that things could not have ever worked with the first.

    Where is it written that one can only love one other person at a time? We can love more than one friend at a time. We can want to bone several people at once. What is romantic love but the best of both worlds?
  • Marriage is a great institution. Everyone should try it a few times

    They exist. Some of them are serious prima donnas though. Sane people are so much easier to live with...
  • Because your perfect life mate isn't the person that happened to have the locker next to yours in high school?
  • Eat More Possum: Marriage is a great institution. Everyone should try it a few times


    My grandfather used to say, "Marriage is an institution... you know who they put in institutions?!?"

    He was a funny old guy.
  • First one was a mistake, second one ended in later life and that was not expected. I wouldn't do it again, especially without a pre-nup. Now that I am older, I recognize that relationships have a certain lifetime. Longer for some, but probably about 10 to 15 years for most. After that, it changes. If it weren't for the ridiculous financial aspects, I would do it again, but who can afford to keep giving away half?

    I know several who aren't prima donas, but I don't know any who are truly sane. Way too much energy and enthusiasm is the most frequent observation.
  • At least that's what my mistress keeps telling me.

    They don't buy polyamorous relationships either, hence the kicks. Seriously though, I know the difference between wanting to bone someone and being in love. Being in love with two people, each of which is annoyed and disgusted by the idea that I might also love another person besides them (and disbelieving that I could), makes life frickin' awkward.
  • My kitchen isn't THAT dirty.

    I was 32 and she was 21. I think I see my mistake, now...

    don't you do it, man
