I've Been Engaged 6 Times, Married 3 Times, And I'm Turning 26 This Year...

What do you think about a guy who has been engaged 6 times, married 3 times and is barely turning 26?

I'm talking about my ex husband. I was his 1st Wife (stupid mistake but I was only 19 and dumb as hell lol). Our marriage didn't make it a year. Found out he was engaged twice before me to high school gfs (was not the reason for our divorce). After me, he got engaged 3 more times and only married 2 of those girls.

We were talking about it yesterday and he says he feels like his 3rd marriage is failing. I asked him "are you going to be one of those guys who gets married like 10 times in their lifetime?" And he says "probably" and laughs.

So your thoughts?

Does he have a personality disorder?

You didn't explain him much, so I'm not trying to imply, but my DD's dad has BPD and - outside of ever getting married - is like that. A lot of personality disorders come w/ volatile, dysfunctional relationships.

not that I know of. His dad does though. Could that be something? My ex is a compulsive liar as well.

Is he really insecure? Insecure people tend to fall in love too fast.

I think he has poor decision making skills.

Well, I don't know much about personality disorders outside of BPD, and what I know there is only what I've experienced. And, I'm probably paranoid about these things b/c of my LO's dad.  

Sadly the only way to really find out is if he goes to a psychiatrist that can evaluate and diagnose him, and men in general aren't apt to do that on their own. Hopefully he doesn't, and is just having shitty luck. And, hopefully he stays single for awhile. I think there's something to learn about yourself when you have to spend a good chunk of time alone and lonely, and that in turn makes for better, longer lasting relationships.
