Look before you leap — into a second marriage

by Jackie Pilossoph for Chicago Tribune Media Group

If you got divorced, would you ever marry again?

Almost every married person to whom I’ve asked this question has emphatically said no, for one of two reasons: Either they are truly in love with their spouse and couldn’t imagine feeling that way again, or they are unhappy in their marriage and the thought of being unattached is too appealing to consider getting back into the saddle.

In either case, it seems no one who is married imagines getting remarried.

 

 

But the responses of divorced men and women to whom I’ve asked the same question include, “Hell, yes,” “Not in a million years,” “It depends,” “I have no idea,” and “Hell, no.”

Getting remarried can be scary and unappealing to many divorced people — understandably so, since their married lives were probably no piece of cake in the first place.
