Hi Beth!......"Amen," to what mathira said! I'd have to agree with her, based on some of the hasty re-marriages I've witnessed/experienced.
Just as with anything else though, this can all depend on the persons involved.
Women and men with small children can get themselves into a frame of mind thinking they MUST have a partner to assist in raising their kids.....to regain that "Family" status. This may be the worst reason of all for getting married again. Kids grow up and leave home. And there you are with this person who strangely has little purpose in your life! Oops.
"In haste" is not a wise way to make any major decision that effects one's life so personally. But we humans do it.....repeatedly. Duh!
IMO.....for the most part, it's a great idea for people to learn to be happy, productive and complete without a partner for a healthy length of time before even considering saying "I do" again.
Your comment made me think about something I hadn't thought about in many years. I have 3 friends who married the SAME man they had bitterly divorced. I remember well, my reaction as well as the reaction of most others........It was something on the order of......"WTF??!!"
BTW......ALL three couples ended up ......yep, you guessed it.....divorced again. Hmmmm...Imagine that! LOL
