marriage after divorce

‘Walking down the aisle, it never occurred to me there was a 9-year-old girl somewhere he’d trade me for.’: Woman learns to ‘heal’ after infidelity, re-marriage, ‘I thought my bad story was the end, it was just a beautiful beginning’

“I was nervous. I watched my soon-to-be husband look me in the eyes and vow his life to me. I took a deep breath, gathered my courage, and promised my life to him in return. He seemed so happy and sincere. I had no idea he actually wasn’t. How could I know? He was a pastor and loved by our community. Everyone loved us as a couple. I ignored the nagging feeling deep inside me.”

‘Please don’t leave me. You can have us both.’ I panicked. I must’ve dropped the ball somewhere.’: Woman recalls pain of infidelity, finds happiness with new husband, ‘I didn’t think people like him existed’

“There it was in my phone bill. The proof that something was wrong. I found text messages to another number all hours of the night. I called to pay my power bill and was asked ‘which address’ I wanted to apply the payment to. Then I knew. He had two places he was living. Two separate lives. ‘Honey, he doesn’t deserve your love.’ I was sure I’d never marry again, until our blind date.”
