I've read that between 40-60% of second and third marriages fail. You would think that people would learn from their mistakes, but I guess not! Possible reasons: people jumping into rebound relationships too quickly, difficulty of blending step families, and financial difficulties from the divorce settlement.
I am married for the second time; we have lasted 34 years. My first marriage lasted 3 years: we were too young to understand what it took to have a good relationship. I learned a lot about myself, and the pain of my divorce allowed me to be a much better wife to my husband. I love being married, and I am glad that I finally figured out how to do it right! I have a wonderful husband, and I am happy that I was not afraid to try again.
