do you think someone who has been married 4 times...

has relationship advice that can be trusted? I mean yes she has been thru alot, but since she cant keep her own relationships together...is she really in a postion to give advice and would you take it?

  • I would rather take advice from someone that knows HOW to make a relationship work.

  • my husband and I had a rough patch and went to counseling. The first guy when I found out he was on his 5th marriage I said we want someone else. He asked why. Well I honestly can't accept marriage advice from a man who can't stay married. And he was a self admitted cheater.

  • Anyone can give advice. I wouldn't take it to heart though. That's like someone who has killed their garden every year for a decade telling you what to plant.

  • yes. We all learn from our mistakes. Those of us with more than one marriage can see how others screw up and we can try to help them keep from making a costly mistake in a marriage. These are suggestions we old timers give, not commands. Take the advice or not but it never hurts to listen then process the information and decide for yourself.

  • I agree, I am in no way judging maybe the relationships ended by someone elses crap but still why is that person choosing such asses then? I have a friend who is trying to hand out marriage advice like pez and I finally had to ask her to stop. ty ladies.

  • true you can offer up examples of what went wrong for you but thats different than advising someone what to do. Hindsite is 20/20 but apparently if the mistakes arent learned from after 4 marriages...maybe they never will be learned at all.

  • nope. My mom is on #4, and growing up, i see why she cant keep a marriage. Picks losers who have some sort of drama she wants to fix. Doesnt work. People who have been married that many times usually do because either they have a problem or make bad choices like mom. Not taking advice from someone like that.

  • You can listen and she likely has seen a lot thru four marriages but honestly, it's not a good sign.
