I Do Again: Remarriage Advice

It’s quite funny. I’ve been engaged for a year but for some reason, many of my coworkers only realized that I was getting married soon after the following picture made it on Facebook:


There is something about a picture (and the word “bride” by my face!) that makes it real. I feel very comfortable about the decision to marry again. It has been deliberate and each step towards commitment has been intentional.

I found this article, Ten Tips For Those Considering Remarriage, on Psychology Today. It’s good advice and helps you make sure that you’re thinking with your head as well as your heart (or your fear!) as you make the decision to remarry. Even if you feel that remarriage is well in your future (or you don’t think you’ll ever venture down the aisle again), it’s a good checklist to help you take inventory of your current emotional health and relationships.


Thank you for sharing!

  1. emotionless brain – I am a regular person who lives a regular life. Along with being a regular individual I am also a very special person... In my life story I am divorced, raising two children (alone), without any family to speak of. These ramblings are trials and tribulations of my every day life. I hope it is as therapeutic for you to read as it is for me to write. Enjoy!

    thank you, while in my head getting married is not an option I know some day my heart will argue that.

  2. Another awesome post! Thank you. Not sure I’ll ever remarry, but if the right person comes along, never say never. 🙂

  3. To be honest, if I were to be divorced, I doubt I would ever get married again. I don’t see many advantages to it (unless you are raising children), as compared to the pitfalls and disadvantages. I know a lot of men (and some women) my age kinda feel the same. But I do wish you good luck!

    1. I was ambivalent about legal marriage for quite a while. I did know that I wanted a long term monogamous relationship, as I loved being married and I wanted that basic structure again. Marriage isn’t perfect and it certainly isn’t a panacea, but I don’t hold the institution responsible for my ex’s decisions. For me, marriage is the right choice. For others, it may not be. And there is nothing at all wrong with that.

  4. Let's CUT the Crap! – Canada – I'm getting a little LONG in the tooth and have things to say about---ouch---AGEing. I believe it's certainly a state of mind but sometimes it's nice to hear that you're NORMAL. I enjoy reading by the truckload. I'm a grandma but I don't feel OLD although I'm not so young anymore. My plan is to stick it out as long as I can on this lovely planet and only will leave it kicking and screaming!
