I believe a good marriage includes at least love, time and dedication from each partner. I found out yesterday that my uncle, who has been married over 25+ yrs will be getting divorced soon. This just totally blew my mind! Never would I have imagined such a loving couple to get a divorce.I never saw anything strange about them and I really thought they would stay together for the rest of their lives but unfortunately this is not the case for many reasons. He seemed depressed and who can blame for losing his wife. He's in his late 50's and is not a bad looking man. I am sure he still loves her and I believe if given the chance, he would go back with her in a heartbeat. I wonder if he will be able to move on after so many years of loving the same woman. Do you think he's able to find someone else after being married so long? I do believe there is some hope but of course it's up to him. What do you believe will occur?

I dont think it is about how long he has been married. I think it is a matter of whether or not he can move on. My parents were married for over 20 years before they got divorced. My Dad moved on quite easily. My mom still has no desire to find someone else. I dont think she ever will. She is happy where she is right now. I think she is afraid of getting her heart broken again. I do hope that your uncle is able to move on and find some peace. Even if he doesnt find another woman to love, I hope he is able to enjoy the rest of his life. Late 50's really isnt that old. There is still so much for him to enjoy!

You are right. It might be hard for him to change. Of course the older he gets the more women will out number men since women live longer than men. Love can be funny. He could even get back together with his wife. Sometimes love has to work things out. Few things really worthwhile come easy. Hang in there uncle!
