Yes, I am glad I married my wife from whom I am now divorced. We were married for almost ten years. It was my second marriage. She taught me a lot about marriage, about love, about women. The ending of our marriage "forced" me to confront my alcoholism which I have and have been sober now for almost two years. If I had been sober, I probably would have seen her insight that we were not meant for each other before we were married. But I have learned a great deal from the entire experience all of which I do not think I could have learned any other way. The ending of our marriage was extremely painful and sad. I sobbed for months. And that is how endings are--sad, but nevertheless invaluable experiences. Thanks for letting me share.
