5 Things to Consider Before Marrying a Divorcee
You never know who you are going to fall in love with and unless you carefully plan it, which is rare, you also do not know for sure who you are going to get hitched to. You can get married to a widower, or you can get married to a recent divorcee. Getting married in itself is quite a big step and you need to consider a lot of things and marrying a divorcee can present new problems in itself. Deep down people are all the same, but a divorce can change some for better or for worse. Never hesitate to marry a divorcee, but also think of a few things before you take the step. Here are a few things you need to consider before marrying a divorcee.
1. Find out if the divorce is valid
The divorce is not legally valid until you see the court affidavits and documents duly signed by the judge and the notary. These papers are very important so you do not get into any legal troubles after you get married. You can end up marrying someone who is already married and that can be painful for everyone involved.
2. Get ready to deal with some emotional baggage
You should know that a divorce no matter how smooth it goes would have left some emotional scarring and baggage. When you get into a relationship or decide to get married, you should also be prepared to deal with the emotional baggage that the other person comes with.
3. Check to see what kind of a relationship your partner shares with the ex
Too friendly a relationship and too much hatred for the ex can also be a bad thing. Also be wary of people who pretend that the ex does not exist anymore. Ambivalence can hide something powerful deep inside. If your partner is cool with the ex and considers them as part of their life and do not attach any strong emotions to them, then it is okay.
