If you are on your 2nd marriage or 3rd or 4th, do you ever regret marrying the first one?Would you change anything in that period?

My daughter asked me that once, and I answered her truthfully. No, I do not regret marrying her Dad. I would do it all over again if I could, because I got 2 awesome girls out of it. Things happened and things still happen but, if I had not had their Dad in my life, I would not have them and I would not be the person I am today.

  • I am on my second marriage. I do regret marring my ex-husband in a way, but in a way I don’t because marring him made me who I am today, I learned a lot from him. Even though I got screwed over by him I still wouldn’t change getting married to him.

  • I don't regret my first marriage. We basically raised each other into who we are today and I'm really thankful for that. We are still best friends to this day.

  • I'm on marriage #3. I don't regret being with #1, but I regret marrying him. I could have gotten pregnant without being married. I completely regret #2, and thank God no children came from that train wreck. But third times a charm. I like this one.

  • I had three marriages. All unique. None regretted as I learned something from each relationship. Even if mistakes, if we learn from them then we'll probably not repeat them.

  • I'm on #2 and do regret #1. I would not do that again even though I have children with him. I love my children very much but feel that things could have been better.

  • This is my #2 marriage and no I do not regret marrying my first husband. I think my first marriage just prepared me for the love of my life now.
