Just read that 50% of marriages in the US now end in

my question is this...if you get divorced, would you remarry?

God forbid my marriage should end, but if it does because you never know...I wouldn't get remarried. I am only going down the aisle once and that is it. I am keeping my married last name but becoming a Mrs. again...don't think so.

Would you, or have you?

  • If for any reason this marriage ended, I would not remarry. I have been with my husband since I was 17 years old and I would not want anyone else.

  • No I would not remarry if I were to divorce.. I wouldn't even remarry if I became a widow.

    Not because I have anything against marriage as a whole. Not because I have a miserable marriage (quite the opposite) and don't want to experience marriage again..Nor because I just love my husband so very much that I could never see myself with another man... It's simply the fact that at this moment I am 48 years old and I have been married for 26 years, I know what it takes to keep a marriage a happy and healthy one. I do not have it in me to start all over again with someone new, I really do not have any desire to put that amount of effort into a relationship again at this stage of my life.

  • I dont play that game... we dont ever discuss what if that.

    IF my husband passed or I passed and we found ourselves alone we both agree that we would hope the other person would fall in love again and marry. I would be heartbroken to think of my husband growing old alone with out a wife to share his joy, love, passion.

  • At this point I'd have to say NO. I've been married nearly 13 yrs and it's been good. I want to keep thinking marriage is a good thing.

  • i would do exactly what you said. and no i would never remarry. he is it for me.
    oh and it actually does look like we are going to get divorced even though im still hoping and praying he changes his mind

  • Nope. One marriage is good enough for me.

    Answer by mommy_of_two388 at 11:04 PM on Jun. 8, 2011

  • I have. I got married when I was young and stupid (18) and it only lasted for 4 months. I have been married to my current husband for 20 years. The only thing that will seperate us is death. If that were to happen, I doubt I'd remarry. I'm sure I'd compare any man I met to my husband and I'm afraid they just couldn't measure up.

  • I am remarried but would not divorce again without trying harder....also I heard that 15% of divorce is because of video games which is not a surprise to me
