  • Sometimes I wonder how different my life would've been had I made different choices. One of those choices is if I went to college instead of joining the Navy. I would never have met my husband, wouldn't have gotten married, and wouldn't have had my kids. Would I have been happier if I was doing the job I wanted and traveling the world visiting other cultures? I don't know.

    But I have no regrets. I love my husband and love my kids. And who knows...maybe someday I can still travel the world. I've already been to many countries. And there's still time left to go to more.

  • yes. I do. While I was single I thougth being married is the way to go, and now that I am married (again), I wished that I was still single. when we are together and things are good, I am glad I am married, but when things are tough, I really want to run and be on my own..very badly. Go slow if you are deciding..either way I know is tough, but usually once you decided to end your marriage you cannot put it back together.

  • Yes I do. After having my daughter is when it really started. He has become a very jealous person.

  • You have your ups & downs in any type of relationship. I never regretted getting married. I have been down that road twice. My first passed away (no apologies please) & my 2nd I think we rushed into it. We are much better off being friends. I have been with my BF now for almost 2 years. He & I both have our reservations about marriage, however we are in a committed relationship. We have all of the above but without that piece of paper. I'm very happy where I'm at now. The only thing I have caught myself saying (to me) I wish I had met him sooner. But you know God works in mysterious ways.

  • I've learned to never regret an experience I can learn from. I just appreciate it for what it was and move on. If it's not right for you and you've tried your best to make it work then it may be time to let go and find the right mate or be free from marriage. I found marriage doesn't work for me. It's too much like domestic servitude. Partners sometimes get complacent and unattentive. I like being single. I am in a relationship and this way it works great. We seem to respect one another and not take each other for granted. Others may want to remarry. What ever floats your boat but you may have to change captains along the voyage!

  • Interesting question with our 27th anniversary tomorrow. Regrets, no I am married to a terrific man that loves me no matter what, he has the patience of Job...and being married to me isn't that easy, he helps with the kids and is above all the other half of myself. I can't imagine life without him
