Divorce Begets Marriage

The more I immerse myself in “divorce”, the more I come across people who’ve “been there, done that” and are ready to tie the knot again.  Among other things, divorce gives us a chance to discover a new “happily ever after”.

Congrats Mom, Jessica and others who have found love again after divorce!

(And if you’re still planning the wedding, please consider my proposal for A Better Way To Wed.  I think my theory has real potential for a strong union… after the bruises fade…)
