Question Would you date a person who's been divorced 3 or more times ???

This person is very good looking and sexy, but has been divorced over 3 times and has 3 young children....

What's your opinion on this ???

Depends on what your goal is.

Just fun? FWB? Then sure.

Love forever and ever? Probably not.

I would be very skeptical. Three failed marriages? More than likely a whole lot more going on with that than he will ever tell you.

Unless this person has had the misfortune of meeting 3 cheating/abusive spouses then no

The last one has definitely never been cheating, was never abusive...just didn't meet his high expectations and made dumb financial decisions....

then it's hell to the no.

People like that shouldn't marry, they don't know what marriage is... or love for that matter.

He's been married 10 years to the first one and 4 months (or so) to the second one....

10 years to the last one and has 3 kids with her (one infant)....

Does that change your opinion ???

The only person it needs to matter to or not is you. What do you want?

What ended those marriages? If he as you say has "high expectations" and was unforgiving because of bad financial decisions, then again, this is not a person worthy to be married to or to be loved by. This certainly isn't a person you can fall back on when times get rough. Whatever happened to

"to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part"

He sounds like a narcissist and the marriage will generally be a one sided venture of living to appease him.

No thanks.

I would probably DATE this person. Loosely.

I would also be very cautious.

I'm not sure I would marry this person, and if I did - it would be after a very very long period of dating.
