Second Weddings

Im new and excited to find this board!!!

Hello. My name is Melanie and Im 29. Im engaged to the most wonderful man-Michael who is also 29. Ive been married before though. Twice. Embarassed Im not proud of the fact. Actually its just my first wedding Im not proud of. I was 19 at the time and married my "high school sweetheart" we had no buisness getting married, we hardly got along at the time and he was abusive...but my 19 yr old self thought by becomming his wife...would change him. Wrong. Our marriage only last a year and I wish it would of been possible to just wipe that from my past.

My second marriage, I did marry because I thought I was head over in heals love with him. We have 2 children (2 and 5) but in the end, while we are awsome parents and friends...we just never loved each other as a wife and husband should.

I am now engaged to my best friend. Michael was my FIRST boyfriend when I was 14. We just bouht a house and this is the next step to my happily ever after...finally! He has never been married before and doesnt have children (actually he doesnt want his own) So our wedding is kinda on the big side, since he hasnt been married befoe.

    Welcome, i'm new here too! :) I've only posted a couple times so far, but everyone here is very nice and helpful. I totally hear you about the first marriage, sounds just like my first marriage. I had turned 18 just three weeks before I married my high school sweetheart. We fought constantly as well, but I contributed mine to stress of being a long distance relationship (he was in the military). But no, when we got married it got WAAAAY worse, because now we were LIVING together and had to put up with each other every day. Our marriage was short too, only 10 months.
