Dear Poll: Would You Marry Someone With Multiple Divorces?

Pamela Anderson announced this week that she and her husband of two months were calling it quits, but just a few days later, she reneged on her statement and now the divorce is officially off. While I know that's old news, it got me thinking about marriages and divorces. In Hollywood, having multiples marriages under your belt seems like no big deal, but in real life, I would consider more than one divorce a huge red flag. Since you all know my old-fashioned values by now, I might be alone on this one. So what I want to know is, would you marry someone with a history of divorce?

I'm on my second marrige. My first husband cheated, did drugs, and was psychologically unfit. He hid these things until after the wedding. He has since passed away. My current husband is the true love of my life. I have known him since I was 19 and I am 31. Everyone wants a forever marrige. This one will be mine!

One divorce barely causes a ripple to me, but beyond that I'd have to think long and hard about. But plenty of women don't seem to care. I have a brother who's been married 5 times and is engaged to #6. I'm getting kind of sick of getting him wedding presents.

i never thought i would but i after i met boyfriend, i began to see there was two sides to every story. he had gotten married on whim when he 18 then he cheated on his wife with who would become his second wife who died 5 years later. when we talk about marriage, it bothers me because i never imagined i would be someones third wife! he likes to call himself ross gellar.

Though multiple divorces could just mean they haven't found happiness, I still have to question their maturity level. Why keep the same mistakes over and over???

i always used to say NO NO NO! But i found a great guy and he's been married twice before. His first one cheated on him and the second he just ran into too fast and for stability only. We've talked about how things are different between us and those relationships he's had. I of course would date someone who's been divorced, i dont judge a mans character based on something like this.

I would be very very hesitant before I decided to marry someone with multiple divorces. But, like in Friends, Ross was a nice guy who had been married three times, and he still wanted to get married and believed in love, so who knows!

I dated someone for two years who had been divorced twice. I actually think it made him a better boyfriend because he had been in those relationships. He was very caring but we didn't end up getting married to each other, boo hoo.

One divorce isn't a deal breaker, but any more than that would make me seriously consider even dating them. I would have to know the circumstances, both of my parent's were married before they married each other. My mom's husband cheated on her (she walked in on them!) so obviously not her fault! It could be a situation like Ross on Friends lol THREE divorces!

nope never. its hard to think that way these days since the divorce rate is so high. but for me maybe cuz of my religious believes it has a stigma to it.

i voted no. for me, that is my choice. i have always seen divorced men as men who are willing to give up on someone that they love. it's just not for me. However, I dont think that this should be the case for everyone. I agree will Julieulie in that it does matter at what stage in life you are in. If all your kids are grown, and you are divorced, and so is the other, go ahead and go with your new love. There are a lot of reasons one can be divorced, so hearing one's story could possibly change my mind.

I definitely would see it as a warning sign. Yes, sometimes marriages don't work but I see divorce as a last resort -- not something that should be considered as an option upon entering a marriage!

Sometimes it takes a while to find your right match -- Marriage is supposed to be FOREVER! You need to decide if you match before you get married.

If it were someone like my uncle who has been married three times over his life, divorced twice, I would. Simply because he doesn't believe in casual relationships and marries whoever he is in a serious, committed relationship with. Also, each marriage has lasted over 10 years and he's friends with all of my Aunts. So, I would consider quality of relationships as well. If it were a guy who had a string of 5 month marriages by the age of thirty, no. But, I also lean toward it being none of my business because you cannot judge a relationship or someone's actions, past or present, from the outside, and should really consider their behavior in respect to your relationship and act accordingly. Eh, I am sooo glad this is no longer my issue. hehe. :)
