Second time around?

Second marriages can be really beautiful – because you have been given a second chance. With the benefit of maturity, you are more aware of who you are, what you need from a relationship. You are hopefully a little wiser and rational, and understanding of what we need from our partners and what we need to give in return. Sure, love is a wonderful thing. But often it can be better when it’s the second time around. That knowledge can be a powerful thing!
