Divorce = Failure, this is what I was recently told by a male friend. I strongly disagree with his opinion. He maintains that a man or woman who is divorced is flawed. They failed at marriage and therefore they will most likely fail in any future relationships. I think this is bullshit. I think that if a man has been married and divorced say two or three times, it proves that he still believes in love and is willing to take a chance. :heart: Then again, I may be biased as I am the product of both my parents 2nd marriage. Mom had been a widow for 8 years, when she met my dad who was divorced. My parents will have been together for 46 years, July 5th this year. :hug: :kiss: Frankly, I'm soo picky about so many other things, that if I were to not consider divorced men as having dating potential, I'd never have dated at all. Do you believe Divorce = Failure? Do you think anyone who has been divorced is somehow inherently flawed? Would you date a divorced man or woman? If not, why? Ladies, which is preferable to date? A 40 year old man who has been divorced twice and has a decent relationship with his ex-wives & children or a 40 year old man who has never been married, has no children and whose longest relationship was 2 years?
