Divorce is an emotional and challenging experience. So when you find someone new that you want to spend the rest of your life with, you may be excited and eager to move forward. One or both of you may be cautious, trying hard to avoid prior mistakes, or lacking in self-confidence.
New relationships are influenced by previous experiences and sometimes can be more complicated because there are often more relationships to manage: ex-spouses, step-children, in-laws, and friends.
Only time and strong communication with each other will help strengthen your bond as a couple. The Family Centre can prepare you for your second marriage and give you a better chance at long-term success. We want you to go into this important commitment with a positive attitude, realistic expectations, and hope for the future.
