If your first marriage fails, should you give up on love?  Elizabeth Taylor didn’t give up.  She was married eight times.  Talk about determination!  Or was this foolishness?  Remember the old saying, “if at first you don’t succeed, try and try again”.  Does this apply to marriage also?  It is said that Jackie O advised that you marry first for love, second for money, and third for companionship.  What do you think about this advice?  Don’t think of divorce as an end.  Instead, consider it as an eraser. You just need to correct an error.  It doesn’t mean that you are a failure.  Use divorce as a learning experience.  Try not to keep picking the wrong person.  Take your time and not jump into another too soon.  This is a mistake that individuals often make.  Make a list of desirable traits that you are looking for and a list of undesirable traits you won’t accept.  Keep in mind that you are not perfect, so don’t expect to find the perfect mate.  Remember, the older we get, the more we are set in our ways.  This includes you too ladies!  If your second marriage fails, there is still hope.  I am not saying to become another Elizabeth Taylor, but don’t despair. Maybe Jackie O had a good analogy. Maybe the third time is the charm. What are your thoughts on this?  Do you believe you can find true love with more than one person?  Is there such a thing as a soulmate?
