Question Getting Re-Married after failed marriage

After my divorce I thought I would never get remarried, I want to keep my kids last name and marriage doesn't mean forever as I already learned. But I have been with someone for 4 years and he wants to get married, he has never been married. Any other women out there who are with someone who wants marriage but you don't?

Re: Getting Re-Married after failed marriage

I was in exactly the same position! I wasn't sure about getting remarried but he's always been very clear that, that was the path he wanted for us. It took a little time getting used to, but the 4 years we've been together have been the best I've ever had. I think, more than anything, I was worried about setting myself up to being too attached to someone again, making my plans around them, having those plans fail again & then being disappointed once more.

I decided to let go of the failure I've felt since my divorce & just live a happy life with my other half. My ex is already remarried & I really didn't want to let go of his last name for our son's sake, but part of me also feels like this will be a cleansing process. I know I feel different from you now, but I can relate to the sting you probably feel & I hope my similar experience feel moderately relatable; sometimes just knowing you aren't alone helps ease whatever we feel about a situation. Whatever you ultimately decide though, it's neither ridiculous nor wrong.

All the best.
