Second Time’s the Charm! 7 Tips for a Successful Second Wedding

Just because your first marriage didn’t work out doesn’t mean your second time around won’t. Consider these tips for success when remarrying after divorce!

Getting married for a second time? You’ve come to the right place.

After a divorce, even an amicable one, it can be hard to start dating again. You may find someone you really love, but when it comes time to pop the question, you might still have apprehension because of the failure of your previous marriage.

It’s important to remember that every relationship is different. Just because your first marriage didn’t go the distance doesn’t mean this one is doomed as well.

In this post, we’re going to give you 6 tips to approach remarrying after divorce. Follow them closely and maybe you’ll gain a fresh perspective on love and relationships.

  1. Put Baggage On the Table

Now that you’ve already been through a marriage that didn’t work, certain misgivings are going to trickle into this one. Instead of letting those same issues come to the fore over time, get all your baggage out on the table for you and your partner to discuss.

The sooner you can both recognize certain behaviors, the better you’ll be able to deal with the effects of them.

  1. Use What You Learned

As much as you can, acknowledge the parts you played in the disintegration of your previous marriage. Use them to your advantage by preventing yourself from falling into the same old habits.

Everything that’s happened up to this point should inform your decision making moving forward.

  1. Create a More Relaxed Atmosphere

Chances are your last marriage ended, at least in part, due to an uncomfortable atmosphere being cultivated. Atmosphere is a big part of any relationship. If it’s positive, supportive, and fun, then you’ll feel more comfortable.

It’s when the atmosphere is negative, nitpicky, and combative that communication breakdowns happen.

  1. Address Conflict Quickly

Conflicts are still going to happen in your new marriage. You might associate conflict with the most negative parts of your former relationships, but they’re completely normal. However, there are things you can do to mitigate the lasting effects of conflict.

The best thing you can do is address them as soon as you’re ready to, kiss and makeup, then get on with your lives.

  1. Don’t Close Yourself Off

When you continually prevent yourself from addressing conflicts in your marriage, you’ll start to close yourself off to your partner. Eventually, they won’t feel like they can communicate with you anymore and your relationship will deteriorate in the same way that others have.

Be open to having any and all conversations, no matter how uncomfortable they make you feel or how angry you might be. Open communication is the key to a lasting marriage.

  1. Forgive and Be Forgiven

Forgiveness can be hard to partake in, but it’s the most rewarding thing in the world. Being understanding of your partner’s faults is paramount to maintaining a healthy relationship.

You should both feel comfortable making mistakes sometimes because mistakes happen. If your spouse-to-be loses their engagement ring for the third time, that’s okay. You can always buy more moissanite rings.

Leave all of the mistrust and skepticism of your last marriage behind because it has nothing to do with where you’re at now.

Remarrying After Divorce: Full Steam Ahead

Don’t let your last marriage discourage you from getting back on the horse. Approach your second marriage with even more hope and optimism because that positive atmosphere is how you’ll make it a success. Remember to have fun and communicate, then the rest will be gravy.
