Should I get married to him for the third time?

My ex husband and I have had a very unstable relationship with each other since it started. We've known each other since we were around 12, started dating around 16, and we are now both in our mid 30s. Together we have 1 biological child, and one that is mine from another relationship that he also raises like it's his daughter. We first got married when we were 20, but that ended due to infidelity and drug use, our second marriage was when we were in our late 20s, and now he wants to get married again. We have broken up countless times, one time for a 4 year period where I had my other child. We've been dating each other again for around 2 years so I don't know if it's too soon to try and make it work by marriage again. Although the children would be happy if we were together again.

Would it be a complete mistake of me to give it another shot?

We have both cheated, and both had drug problems, so it isn't like he's just a bad guy.

That makes it even a bigger NO. Addicts should not be with addicts. It's like a top 5 rule.

My life rule is I don't recycle people. Go find someone new. Healthy. Good for you.

The problems came from us both...

Well then, double the no, in my opinion of course.

Depends if you both have grown up and learned from the mistakes you have made
