  • Yes i've been divorced, after 6 years of marriage and being together for 11. I wish I had gotten it a lot sooner or never married him at all. He is a sex and porm addict and it resulted in a lot of cheating and even physical and verbal abuse. I stayed for our son and was simply miserable. And I finally realized that me being miserable made my son miserable. It was the best and hardest decision of my life. I am a million times happier in my second and last marriage.

  • Yes, I've been divorced. I did it after enough time (4 years) and I have absolutely no regrets about it at all.

  • I don't regret getting married. I wouldn't have my one son if I hadn't married him. Do I regret getting divorced, oh heck no. Do I wish I would have done it sooner--yes.

  • Divorced once and my only regret is that I didn't listen to my gut about him cheating (could never prove it) and married him any way. About 6 months later he told me got someone else pregnant and was going to help her raise the child and leave me.

  • Yes been divorced. I dont regret it, what I regret was getting married. We were only married 4 months before separating and it took 3 years to get divorce b/c he would not pay for half and I finally sucked it up and paid for it myself.

  • Yes I've been divorced a couple of times. I don't regret the divorces. I regret the marriages. I never wanted them. My parents kept pushing me in to them.
