This is very possible, and probably pretty common. I think it is a big reason, but not the only reason, why 2nd and 3rd marriages have a higher failure rate than first marriages. When you go into a marriage with unresolved issued from a previous marriage it makes for a difficult situation for the new spouse. I think you are also more likely to give up sooner when you have been badly hurt in a previous relationship. In my own experience, I went into my 2nd marriage thinking I was over all the crap from my 1st, but I wasn't. I had really great intentions, but I wasn't very fair to my new husband; the 1st time he made a minor mistake I treated him like it was the 100th time, and by the 2nd or 3rd time I just shut off my emotions and gave up. If you are in this situation try to get some counseling, and if the man you have now is decent try not to give up on him. GL!
