For many couples in Texas, getting married for the second time seems like a fresh start. However, there’s no guarantee that you’ll be able to avoid the problems that haunted your previous marriage. In fact, some people jump into their second marriage so quickly that they never resolved the issues from their previous relationship. While some people see second marriages as a safe bet, these relationships can end just as badly. Here are some common reasons why second and third marriages end in divorce.
Why do second and third marriages fall apart?
One reason why second marriages fall apart is that people tend to jump into the marriage without thinking. They’re desperate to get away from their former spouse and start fresh in a new relationship. As a result, they might get married to their new partner without getting to know them first. At the time, it seems like the perfect way to get their mind off the conflicts from their previous relationship. But over time, they start to realize that they have no idea who they married.
On a similar note, many people get married for the wrong reasons. Some people get married because they’re afraid of being alone while others get married because they want to make their former spouse jealous. Others are addicted to the euphoria of being in a new relationship but have no idea what to do when the euphoria wears off. Whatever the case, these types of marriages are likely to end in divorce.
Additionally, many people bring the baggage from their previous marriage into their new relationship. Instead of dealing with their issues, they bury them or pretend that nothing happened. But inevitably, their fears and conflicts arise in their new marriage. Sometimes, they’re afraid of getting close to another person; other times, they’re afraid that their spouse will suddenly leave them.
When should you hire an attorney?
Whatever the case, it’s important to know when it’s time to walk away from a relationship. If you suspect that your marriage has run its course, you might wish to hire an attorney. An attorney may help you figure out if divorce is the best course of action and, if so, how to proceed.
