Well, if ya wouldn't that narrows the field down a bit now-a-days!lol But, as to your question, yes I would, actually I have, twice, both ended in divorce, but didn't have anything to do with them be married before. I am with a wonderful man now that has been married 3 times, but then again, so have I. We haven't really discussed marriage, after all it didn't work before. He once put it that 'I'm fine playing house' and if I really thought about it, the only thing missing is a piece of paper and a ring, I can live with that. He knows about my ex's and I know about his, have met one, since she is the mother of his daughter. So unless his marriage didn't work because he cheated or was a wife beater, then yeah why not/

Thank you, we lived 1600 miles apart when we met, and I moved to his state. We have been together 2 1/2 years, and we both feel we have found our soulmate.

I wouldn't. especially if the person has kids since he will be bound to see his ex and they may rekindle without me knowing. I see this all the time. Maybe they won't rekindle, but having kids will always remind them of their past history which I am not part of. for some people this may be OK, but not for me. After all divorce is not an easy process, it affects emotionally and financially, mostly emotionally. This means it may take time for the person to recover and then ready to marry again. I've never met any divorcee that talk peacefully about their past, even though it's been 10 years ago.

I think there is truth in what you say. I think though if you found yourself that way; maybe it would be different.

Hi littlefranciscan! If I am still single right now and I found love with man who has been previously divorced, why not? As long as we love each other, understand and respect one another and he makes me laugh I think I will marry the guy. But of course I will be asking a lot of questions why his previous marriage didn't work out. haha..Take care and have a nice day! :)

It would depend on whether his wife (divorced) and my husband are still alive or not. Then it would depend on the circumstance that caused the divorce, and the character of the fellow.

It is a great job to help some some one. If some one is unlucky and she is divorced, and looking for some one to marry her or him and some one comes and exepts her or his offer. I think accepter is a great peson. As concerned my self I want to be hero and want to pick such a person to marry, who is not acceptable for others.

hmm...it really depends on the person and the circumstances obviously. But if your saying that "being previously divorced" deducts the chance of me marrying any guy, I would say No.

Lot of people prefer to marry others who have not married before..but to me..I think if there is love and the marriage was resolved there should be no problem with such a thing happening.

Without hesitation- yes! Nothing wrong with that- unless the ex is a psycho or something? There is a reason it didn't work and people do fall out of love- it happens everyday- so yes I would! :)

I don't see anything wrong in marrying someone who has been married before...if I know the person well enough and the reason for the divorce. If the reason for divorce was an affair, then I'd rather stay away from that person.

Well...I think so. Divorcees are human too. As long as 2 persons are compatible it does not really matter if one of them is a divorcee.
