When you get married for the first time, it is this magical event. It feels like your entire life lead up to this. You think about all the stars that had to align in order for this to occur. You think of how you and your partner were once mere star dust, plummeting towards earth, on your journey to find one another…You are two halves that become whole together. Now by the second time you get married, you may have some of those same thoughts, but you believe that your first hubby was just a part of your journey to finding your second one—and he is actually your soul mate. By the third marriage you’ve probably thrown the concept of a soul mate out entirely, and you laugh at the things you thought about your first marriage. How could you not? You felt so certain about something you turned out to be so wrong about. Such is life. Here is how people think differently by their third marriage.
You’ve accepted your flaws
You are done trying to change certain flaws in yourself that, clearly, you cannot change. So you’ll only be with someone who fully accepts those about you. He can’t get mad when they come out. He can’t disappear. And he can’t think you’re going to change them because, well, you already tried that for two marriages.
