Will it be a marriage of infinite syndication? Probably not. Psychology Today reports that over 60 percent of all repeat marriages are prone to cancellation. Evidence shows that repeat marriages fail quicker than the premiere episode. Lois Tarter, author of  The Divorce Ritual and contributor to the Huffington Post, believes there are a few steps to be taken when contemplating Act II with your former spouse.

  • Time – take it. Make sure all emotional wounds have healed. Confront and resolve any outstanding issues before the anticipated wedding date;
  • Honesty is truly the best policy. Both of you will need to reestablish trust. Be open to accepting your responsibility for the failed first marriage;
  • Children – take them into consideration. Hold off just a bit before informing the kids of your reconciliation their emotions may still be in turmoil;
  • Counseling is likely a good idea. Consider individual, couples counseling or marriage classes. Keep all things topical on a regular basis. Avoid misconceptions and old habits.
