It's no different than the first except without whatever the problem was that caused the first one to fall apart.
Speaking from my own experience (which, I suppose, is all any one person can do ), there are definite pros and cons to being a second...or third. In my case, my husband is my second and I am his third, though we both seem to have picked up the same kinds of things from our previous marriages. First, there is bound to be some emotional baggage from a previous marriage, and sometimes it can be hard to get over those issues. For example, my husband's first wife cheated on him and the second was extremely controlling to the point of even picking out his socks and underwear for him. My first husband had a very low self-esteem, and compensated for it by treating me as sub-human. Now sometimes even little things crop up...he gets upset if he can't find "acceptable" matching underclothes, or I can't stop asking permission to buy food items at the grocery store or overreact to mild criticism, etc. However, there is also the positive side. Both of us have learned a lot from what caused our previous marriages to fall apart, and since we've already been in bad relationships we appreciate each other's good points that much more. Having seen what it can be like, we tend not to take any little thing for granted and both work on the relationship constantly, as well as let each other know when there's something we really appreciate about the other.

I know that getting married young was probably the first sign that marriage was maybe a bad idea, but a marriage isn't going to work when only one person is putting forth an effort to make it work. I was 22 when I got...
