The Wedding Go Round

First off I will point out that I am not a qualified counsellor. It is not uncommon now to find couples that are onto the second, third (or even fourth) marriage these days. The circumstances are different; you could be a widow (and for those people my heart goes out to you), you could have an annulment after an “uh-oh what have we done?” moment, infidelity, or you have changed and grown apart. Some can make their marriage work and for others they are not right for each other and it is better to call it a day and move on. Some people marry ‘The One for Today’ and eventually get round to finding ‘The One’.

My parents divorced when I was a kid and both have since happily moved on and found the one they are supposed to be with and that is all that we, as their kids want. I have family and friends who have divorced and remarried and all are happy. Sometimes you have to kiss the odd frog (or two, three, four!) to find your Prince/Princess. At the core of it all though everyone deserves to be loved, to love and be happy in a healthy relationship. Our paths to that one person who makes your heart skip a beat can take some trial and error. As my mum says there is a reason why cars have bumpers and there is an eraser on the end of the pencil – people make mistakes. Of course she is not saying that my brothers and I are mistakes, far from it. It was just her first marriage wasn’t the right one for either of them. That is life and it is okay.

We should acknowledge the man who made it possible for annulments and divorces. That man being King Henry VIII. I am not sure if he truly loved the six women he married, I think he was more focused on having a son to take over the throne, but that said it was his desire for the next bride that led him to separate the Church of England from the Roman Catholic Church and take on the role as the head of the Church of England and thus sanctioned annulments and divorce. His own six marriages ended in annulments, beheadings, confinement in the tower and one wife died a natural death (just after child birth). Sad for those women but today for us divorce can leave some with little money, stress and hurt but at least you still get to keep your head, oh, and you get to move on and find true love!

A little more recently you only have to look at celebrities such as Elizabeth Taylor. A stunningly beautiful woman with a jewellery collection that I would love like my own child, was married 7 times. Elton John was engaged to Linda Woodrow, married Renate Blauel on the 14th Feb 1984, divorced her in 1988 and married David Furnish on 21st December 2005. He tried with two women but found his true love was a man. Sometimes it is how these things go. Jennifer Lopez has just divorced her 3rd husband then you have Madonna, Mick Jagger, Rod Stewart, Nicole Kidman, Tom Cruise – all divorced and remarried. Some did so in flamboyant fashion, others kept it low key.

If you are about to embark on your 2nd or more marriage it all comes down to how comfortable you and our partner are as to how you choose to get married. You can have a civil/commitment ceremony, elope to an island or ride in on an elephant if that is what you want. If your first wedding was a fizzer, spice it up and make this one the fire cracker! There is nothing wrong with celebrating finding love and happiness, just because you did it all before shouldn’t stop you now. Life is too short.
