Had to respond to Yana’s blog about 2nd marriages!  My favorite quote regarding this is the following:  “Second children and second marriages is absolute proof that HOPE will triumph over EXPERIENCE!”

My journey includes 2 marriages to date....both before I was 26 yrs.young.  The first was when I was 19.  He was a part of the family and mom and dad used to say, “If you don’t marry Pat...we’ll adopt him.”  I did marry him, then 6 years later saw what it was like being married to an eternal frat boy / good time Charlie....YIKES!  I called my parents and said, “get out the adoption papers...please!”  He was the first one to arrive at mom’s house when my dad passed away ten yrs. ago and he still calls mom, “Mom.”  The 2nd marriage was to a man 20 years older...we split up 12 yrs into the marriage and he passed away in 2001.  He was on his 4th wife...but I called to pray with him every a.m. while he fought leukemia for 6 months.  Marriage doesn’t make sense to me anymore....for me.  But I’ll still wear the ugly dress at any of my friends’ nuptials!  Blessings to all.
