So I too have the thrice married, thrice divorced thing in my life.Sure, I finally re-alized that marriage is unneccessary to dating and relationships of any sort, but I would marry one more time, out of respect to the one I was with in a loving LTR with, my last partner.
Many people have been in lots of long term relationships but were too afraid to commit themselves, so that would somehow make them better than someone who did make a commitment.It was only when women started working on a regular basis that they had the financial independance to leave. No matter how many divorces, or ended LTRs, it depends on the reasons and to cast a general blanket about this issue, like all generalities, is to be naive and judgemental.Now, both men and women can afford to leave a bad marriage. Marcia I'd be most concerned if she had a string of short-lived marriages.I think it would have to depend on the circumstances. I would raise an eyebrow but give the benefit of the doubt. One of my flaws.marital challeged is the correct term..Like if he/she were a serial cheater or had a drug or alcohol problem. Same for someone who reaches our age and has never been married. I know a lady was divorced 5x by 19 yrs old.a lady divorced 5x and 50..would I date them? There are reasons folks are married more than once.you bother to ask and they feel free enough to share..
