It is hard for some of us to imagine others who have been divorced and remarried. There are people out there who have been three or more times. Sometimes, it becomes a pattern, but there are the cases where they end up finding that perfect someone on the third attempt at marriage. How does this happen? Usually, they get comfortable with the first and second person and marry out of obligation to build a family. When the third partner comes around, they often break their pattern and learn to be with someone that compliments them.

- We love each other and are grown-ass adults who have spent thousands of dollars on therapy to gain self-awareness and compassion.
“Marriage … You’re in it for life in theory,” my husband ruminated while recording an episode of his podcast recently as he sidelined to talk about our union, which just reached the 14-month mark.”
