Interesting other thread.

My DH has been married to me and that's it. I lived with 2 others but DH and I didn't move in together til the year of the wedding.

My friend won't marry her DP of over 20 years as she doesn't want to be the 4th Mrs Richmond grin

I can understand a little bit where she is coming from if say she had been with him 3 years but 20! I think no one would even remember the previous 3 marriages they are so long ago!

I'm dh second wife. He is my 1st husband

NewLife4Me Thu 02-Jun-16 19:59:04

We have both only been married to each other, and I was only his third gf.
I have never lived with anyone else but had boyfriends.
We met nearly 28 years ago.

FiveGoMadInDorset Thu 02-Jun-16 20:05:25

I am his third wife, he is my first husband

DH had never had any serious relationship before me. I lived with one person before him. Only marriage for us both.

AutumnRose1988 Thu 02-Jun-16 20:24:22

I know a lot of women (well 4) who are third wives and a man who is a 4th husband and no one bats an eyelash because the couples are happy and the other relationships are water under the bridge.
Years ago I was friends with a girl who's mum married at 17 and divorced 6 months later due to DV so that was good on her that she got out of it so quickly then she was married to number 2 for 16 years and about the same to number 3 and then still married to 4 x

I'm his one and only! He was engaged before but she cheated on him, and MIL never liked her so it was definitely doomed!

ThePortlyPinUp Thu 02-Jun-16 20:28:40

I'm his 3rd wife but he is my first husband. He was getting married for the first time in the same year that I started infants school.

2nds Thu 02-Jun-16 20:29:16

He was married once before, me I've never walked up the aisle.

2nds Thu 02-Jun-16 20:30:09

Oh BTW my fella was engaged I think about 4 times as well lol

Only1scoop Thu 02-Jun-16 20:33:00

Blimey some of these DP's must looorrvvvv wedding cake grin

ThePinkOcelot Thu 02-Jun-16 20:39:15

Just the once for each of us - to each other.

SockQueen Thu 02-Jun-16 20:54:16

Just once for each of us (to each other). I'd had one serious relationship prior to him, he'd had two, but neither of us had lived with anyone else - we got together at 22 so not a huge amount of time beforehand for other relationships!

HooseRice Thu 02-Jun-16 21:03:02

S'up Just5?

DailyMailYobos Thu 02-Jun-16 22:29:58

Dh and I have only been married once, to each other.

Chasingsquirrels Thu 02-Jun-16 22:34:20

Same as me - as of yesterday we've both been married twice (both first marriages ended in divorce).

foodiefil Thu 02-Jun-16 22:42:58

My DP has been married twice. Once to college sweetheart, the second to someone he had been with a year. Think he likes to make people happy. Puts me off marriage. Makes me think it won't be special. I think of ways to make it different - the wedding - abroad for instance. It would be my first. Humph! wine
