Crazy question but can I marry my husband again?

I have been married to my dh for 5 years. When we got married I was not in a very happy place and although I wanted to do it I hated every minute of the wedding. It was a big-ish wedding with about 120 people. I just put my head down and got through it.

I am a much happier person now. I absolutely adore my husband, did then and do now even more. I regret not being able to fully enjoy my wedding day and I so want to be able to do it again, just me and him, maybe two best friends with us. Does anyone know if you can do this?

It sounds crazy I know but I love him so much and he has put up with so much from me (I had a bit of a breakdown round about the time we got married)that I just want to do what I thought I would do on my wedding day.

Sorry if I don't reply again on this till later but am at the inlaws and have intermittent internet access.

Why not renew your vows? smile

renewing your vows would be the way to do that.

Thought about that, do you think it would be ok to do that after only 5 years?

yes. You can do it whenever you want.

Sounds like a lovely idea.

You can renew your vows - my parents did when I was about 25-ish, think they had a ghastly tiny first wedding, & the renewing vows thing-y was a biggish party, so the other way round to what you want.

I have to say, though, I found the whole thing deeply embarrassing and didn't want anything to do with it!

I just googled renewing vows and got loads of stuff back. Twoluvlykids I know what you mean about it being slightly cringy. I think if I made it into a big party it would be a bit tacky but I suppose if its just him and I it would be slightly different.

Yeah, I was too old/cynical to get excited by my PARENTS getting married.

I remember a newspaper story about a man who had remarried his wife about 20 times. The authorities caught up with him and wanted to charge him with something for it. I think he got off with it in the end but the moral of the sorty was you can renew your vows as often as you like but you can not get married again when youa re already married, even if it is to the same person.

Renew your vows as part of a romantic holiday maybe?

You could have a second honeymoon while you're at it. And invite your dcs this time (if you didn't the first time) If you did the first time then this time it could just be you and him.

I think its fine to do again. Small deal or party with friends, just don't ask for presents wink
