Multiple divorce dating
I wrote an article a while back about what I learned from being married three times. There were a few people who have very strong feelings on people who have married multiple times. Once in one of many therapy sessions, a therapist asked how I was.
Committed couples often hit major snags in a relationship and lose each other for a period of time.New girlfriend Michelle Sucillon, a former Borders event-marketing exec, is 51 and Aldrin is 81.As a society we tend to be skeptical whenever a couple's ages are so far apart but I'm not sure why; there are certainly enough relationships in which the couples are about the same age that don't last, either.There were more than a few raised eyebrows when former astronaut Buzz Aldrin started dating a woman just months after his divorce from his wife of 23 years, Lois Driggs Cannon -- his third wife.For some, the question was, what is he doing with someone 30 years his junior?"

They're quick to assume what they consider the obvious, that I must be pretty crappy marriage material because I "failed" at two of them. Or, more likely, something must be very "wrong" with me. Serial marriages aren't that uncommon, especially among celebs -- Elizabeth Taylor, Mickey Rooney, Larry King come to mind.
The couple in the booth behind us were on either a first date or maybe a second date. Whenever she spoke of her ex, and she did often, she always prefaced her comments with: She never said, "when I got divorced" or "when my marriage ended". I felt sorry for her because the bitterness was so thick you could taste it.
They were definitely in the 'getting to know you' phase. One day, you will wake up and know that you gained strength from the experience.
Floppy relationship triangles are essentially unstable and the outcomes are not only unpredictable, but often dire.
There are many factors that can affect these triangulated relationships, and how they are combined can affect the outcome in different ways.
Women, who tend to be more vocal about their emotional struggles, are the squeaky wheel that gets the grease from friends, from online communities, from books, and from therapeutic approaches.
