the marriage ended about 13 years ago, it was sad, but we both realized we were no longer the right people for each other.  I remarried and had two beautiful boys now 8 and 11.  I have not told them I was married before.  I don't have any contact with my ex, and we had no children.  My best friend cannot believe I haven't told my children about my first marriage.  Do you think I should? and why or why not?

Maybe when they are older. I don't really see the need to tell them since there are no kids from that marriage.

Yeah I wouldn't bother right now, it's not THAT big of a deal and your children are still fairly young, probably young enough to not care.

I don't see why you need to keep it from them but i understand why they don't know at this age.

I will probably tell them when they are older, right now they are happy to know that their dad is my one and only love.

I think they would be kind of upset about it.....  I think I will keep quiet about it for now.

 I was married before I had my kids with my husband and I plan on telling the kids one day.  No reason to keep it a secret.

but how old are they now, and when do you plan on telling them?
