what finally made you take the plunge again,especially if you had dc/s from 1st marriage?

StrictlyAvadaKedavra Sun 27-Sep-09 16:10:18

The fact that I had absolutely no doubts and that, in contrast with my first when I was thinking up all kind of madcap ways to get out of it even in the car on the way spoke volumes to me

grin grin nothing helpful to add, as I didn't do it 'properly' and get married the first time, but I am so delighted that you are thinking about it grin

hiya, i would get married again, i was young and stupid when i got married the 1st time, didn't consider the full implications. and in the car on the way to the church my heart was sinking coz i knew deep down i didn't really want to!!!!!
and it only lasted about a year!!!
but when i do it again it will be for keeps.

so what has made you change your mind?
have you since met somebody else mummee09verity? @the fit thread

Can I just say at this point that if any one of us does get married we should all get an invite. grin

I would remarry if I met someone nice again but I would have to be 100% sure about it. No doubt at all.

you'll have to fight dd to be bridesmaid evegrin

I don't think I will ever get married again.

I wouldn't rule out living with someone again but not till dcs older/left home.

how old are your dcs ASBM - they are quite young I think?

Friend of mine has 8 and 5 yr old and that has worked out very well.

Agree about the invite.

Perhaps we should meet anyway

My dp and I have been together for 12 years, and we are getting married in a couple of months.

We have thought about getting married for a while, and have spent a lot of time thinking and talking about why, whether it will change things (we don't want it to), what the implications would be for my dcs, and our families.

Having these discussions has been a great thing for our relationship. We thought we knew each other very well, but we have both found out new things about each other as we have explored our reasons for getting married.

I am glad it has taken us such a long time to decide - I know that we are getting married for very positive reasons that we are both agreed on, and not because we want to demonstrate anything to anyone else.
