I'm on my second time around. It's just like Frank Sinatra sang about. The first time, I married my high school sweetheart. We were married for 19 years. I was single again for 5 years when I met my 2nd husband. We dated (or whatever you call it at this age) for about 7 years before we got married. We didn't rush into this by any means. We are going on our 5th year in a couple of months. It really is different the second time. We are each other's best friend. I think that is so important. We have a lot of communication, we laugh a lot, and we enjoy each other's company. (He also cooks, cleans and does the grocery shopping [Smile] ) Life doesn't get any better than that. [Big Grin] I did all that the first time around.

But, I am cooking Thanksgiving dinner. Every once in a while I revert to June Cleaver, but it never lasts. [Big Grin]

I just love HAPPY endings don't you? I wish one for all my friends and one for me as well. I keep waiting for my 1st husband to msteralize in another man, he promised me before he died that he would come back to me if he could.... [Frown]

Chatty, I bet you're just waiting for tha tto happen. No wonder! [Wink] Your posts about him are so touching. Isn't it hard to accept what the Lord offers at times?

I've been married to my first husband for almost 23 years.

Of course, nothing is guaranteed but to tell you the truth, I was more worried about buying a house in 1982 at a 16 3/4 interest rate and taking on that debt than I was worried about getting married. We'd gone together for eight years, were approaching 30, and just decided that it was time. We've had our ups and downs but I wouldn't want to try to get through this thing called life with anybody else but him by my side. We're still living in that starter home. Oh, and we have two GORGEOUS daughters too. [Wink]

Misfire, remember those interest rates? Unbelievable... And then everyone refinancing as they came down? That was the good part!

How old are your girls?

I think if you read Misfire's quote,

We cannot direct the wind, but
We can learn how to adjust our sails


you'll better understand why her marriage works. I read it over again every time she's got a post.

Thanks gal, I love the positive that always flows from you.

Looks like Dianne and Dian are in a race:

Hubby #1 I divorced because I was young and stupid. If I knew then what I know now, we would still be together. We had a daughter together and are friends today.

Hubby #2 Was an alcoholic abuser who died two years after we divorced from an exploded liver. The alcohol ate his brain.

Hubby #3 is really almost hubby #4 because we dated for 4 1/2 years as kids before breaking up and marrying other people. Problem is, we have so much baggage we're almost killing each other mentally. But, I'm determined to give it my best, and he is working on it, too. So we'll see. Feel like an actor in a soap-opera.

Dian, talk about similar stories....

My #1 husband died at a young age, he is the one I would have never parted from and loved unbelievably...since I was 16.

My #2 was an alcoholic who after our divorce died from booze as well.

My #3 is a joke, should have never happened. We've been divorced since 2001. Now he's back trying to make nice BUT as you say TOO much baggage there, we pretend to get along at best.

“It’s Over”

There is no love left in this house.
Our house in no longer a home.
It is full of:
Shattered dreams
Bad memories
Wasted hopes
Too may lies
Tearful nights
Lonely days
Hopeless tomorrows
Bitter yesterdays
No flames of life
Only the flicker of…
Goodbye.

(c)Eve Hall 2000
