So your divorce is final and you’ve met someone new? How do you tell if the time is right to take a new relationship to the next level after having been divorced previously? After all, your prior marriage ended in divorce and you want to do everything you can to make sure this time around is forever. There are no good answer to these questions, but there are some tips for how to make sure a subsequent marriage is successful.
Aside from talking about how to be a parent to another person’s child, what role ex-spouses from both parties will play, and how to make it financially possible to have two families there are three important things to think about before getting remarried. These include:
● Look to your past to help avoid making the same mistakes in your future.
● Present a united front for the kids, including “yours, mine, and ours”.
● Make sure remarriage is what you want, and is not simply a way to avoid being alone or that a subsequent marriage is not filling another emotional void.
Divorce is hard, but can also give you valuable experience. When you are able to apply what you have learned to future relationships, you will come out ahead. Be sure that your decisions are based on sound reason and true emotions rather than a passing thought. Taking the time to make sure you are getting remarried for the right reasons will help improve the odds of success for a subsequent marriage.
