After a divorce, many people swear they will never marry again. However, just because you have a divorce under your belt does not mean that you cannot have a successful second marriage. The team at Men’s Legal Center wants to help you navigate the sometimes complicated and painful path of divorce successfully, including thinking about your next relationship and how it may impact your life.
How do you know if you are ready to remarry? Here are some tips to help you make that important decision.
Be Sure You Are in Love, Not Lust. Love is the main reason people give for marriage, whether it is your first or a subsequent marriage. While it is important not to rush the dating process, it is possible to fall in love and be ready to marry again even after going through a tough divorce. Many people are able to find true love after a bad first marriage. However, it is important to remember that many people in new relationships confuse lust with love. While sex is an extremely important part of the relationship, it is not the only important part. Lust, unlike love, can fade with time. Those who are “in lust” are not always able to work through conflicts like their “in love” counterparts, leading to dysfunction in the relationship. The ability to resolve disputes is an extremely important aspect to a successful relationship.
Be Sure You Want To Be Married Again. After taking the time to completely heal from divorce, it is possible you will consider remarrying. However, remarriage is not something you must to do but something you should want to do. When you are single and happy, you are in a much better place to consider a relationship with someone else. You should always try to find a person you want to be with, not just someone who is the right choice because you believe being married is what you are supposed to do.
Be Sure You Can Give and Receive. After divorce, it is crucial to take time and focus on yourself. This means working on any issues you may have about relationships as well as getting to know yourself in your new single life. When you are happy with yourself, you will be in a position to both give and receive. This will allow you to enter a healthy relationship that can possibly lead to marriage. If you are not done getting to know yourself and know you cannot give and receive, think twice about entering into another relationship.
