I’m coming up on the seven-year anniversary of my second marriage.
And I’m really, really happy in my relationship with my husband.
But I can’t help thinking back to this same time in my first marriage, when I was unhappy and contemplating divorce. Which I followed through with just a year later.
What a difference the second time around has been. I have no doubt that this marriage will last for an eternity.
And I’m not alone. A study by the Marriage Foundation found that second marriages are less likely to end in divorce. While 45 percent of first marriages break up, only 31 percent of second marriages follow suit.
I like those statistics. And I agree with the reasons that go along with them: age and experience.
