I've been married and divorced four times and I've said that each time I headed for divorce court. One of the four, I really did tell myself it was a mistake even before we were married. I even had a minister refuse to perform the ceremony, although he wouldn't give me a reason for that decision. We had been dating for four years and for the last two I wore his engagement ring. It was my 2nd marriage and his first. He had just left the Navy. The marriage lasted for 4 months and culminated in physical abuse that I couldn't ignore.
Now that I'm older, I find that each of these were a very good choice on my part in that I had valuable experiences from each and every one. I'm not certain that relationships are supposed to last forever. My parents were married for over 50 years, but they were not happy years and they were on the verge of divorce many times. I think they were never both wanting it at the same time.
I really kicked myself for that 4-month fiasco but not too long ago I got word that he died and left me a life insurance policy. It wasn't a huge one, but it really helps with my social security. So there was a reason for that one too. It just took me longer to find out what it was.
