Do you think that is hard to marry again, after 40, can be a new start?

Mature peoples, after a divorce, over 40, have a lot of experience in life,they lose trust in peoples, can they marry again, or is more better to stay alone?

Anyone can marry at any age if he is fully prepared and wanting for it and if the partner too is willing whole heartedly so.After all it the decision of two grown up adults who are well matured to know the consequences of a marriage.

A friend of mine is over 40 and has been divorced and just the other night she said she is glad she has a boy friend as that way he has his money and she has hers as well as if they break up he can just go home as they also have seperate houses so nothing would have to be sorted out.

My husband was well into his 60s when we got married, and I was well into my 20s. We have a great marriage. I don't think that age matters when someone has finally found the right person.

Wow, good for you! I agree that age is just a number and I love hearing stories like yours. Don't let anybody give you a hard time; I'm glad you both went after what you wanted and what was best for you despite what others may think (I have heard such nasty comments from people about age difference in relationships; it's ridiculous) and I wish you many years of good health and happiness!

I think it really depends on the person. I'm over 40 and if I ever lost my Hubby I wouldn't remarry simply b/c I wouldn't want to. Some ppl don't like spending their lives alone. [b]!!Happy Turkey Day!! ~~AT PEACE WITHIN~~ **STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS**[/b]

Hi,ice,It had two dimensions---1]it is better to have marriage to lead balance life.Really it is horrible to spend life alone after spent few years married life.With partner one's life is not complete and especially when we are in sick who cares about us.This is applicable for most of the cases those which are practical. 2]There are people who had abundant love on wife and their mind set is too sentimental,it is better to not marry.Because they would not lead life happily and take precautions to lead life alone. Have a nice day and happy mylotting.

It depends on whether you can find the right person or not. If you can,then of course it will be better for you to get married again. A good marriage will make your life better and more meaningful and it will prolong your lifetime. While if you cannot find the right person then just wait, it is not a big deal to stay alone. For a bad marriage will make you live in hell. You may ask how to find the right person, and you may think that it's easy to say but hard to do. Here i have two suggestions for you. You should think through your previous marriage very carefully to find out the reason why your marriage failed. Remember not to push all the responsibility to your wife or husband, you must try to think on his or her position. You should know you didn't do well on which aspect and how can you improve that. For example, if you didn't spend much time on your family then remember to chang it next time. It will be helpful for you to learn some psychology, especailly the types of people. You can try MBTI test, it will give you good advice which type of person is suitable for you. I have tried the test and it is very useful.

I personally think that while there is life, there is hope. " No man is an island", I think anyone can remarried as long as he/she is legal to marry and still capable to get married

It depends on one's views and feelings about marriage. Preparedness and readiness about marriage does not depend on one's age or other circumstances. Chronological age does not depend on one's maturity to handle complexities. So if someone has still a mental capacity and positive disposition about life and living life to the fullest then it doesn't matter what age bracket she or he is right now.

A wise woman once told me never to keep any door closed. I was 48 when I met the man who is now my husband...he was 55. We have been together for 6 years and have a great relationship. As long as you're still breathing it's never too late to be happy. If that means that it's your choice to live alone, fine, but if your wish is to have a partner in life, don't let age stand in your way.

there is a saying that life begins at 40. after the experience, am sure those mature people will not just get in without thinking. i guess it is good to have someone beside you and share happy moments while getting old. ann
