Multiple Marriages

There are lots of people who have been married more than once, but what about those that marry six, seven, or more times? I don’t mean to be judgmental, but I think that after that many times, I’d just give up. I can’t imagine getting married over and over again, and I have to think that somehow such people don’t take their vows very seriously, at least not the part that says until death do us part.

I know a man, a distant relative actually, that was married eight times in less than twenty years. Four of those were to two women. Well, he married two different women twice each, but also had four other marriages somewhere in between those to four different women. One marriage lasted all of six weeks.

Like I said, I don’t mean to judge, but I do find that situation a bit extreme. I could never figure out why these women would even consider marrying a man with such a track record. Both of the women he married twice knew that he divorced them to be with someone else. Then, he got tired of the new girl and remarried the first woman. If it were me, I would have had plenty to say, although it would not be “I do.”

I’m sure some people have very good reasons for having more than one marriage, but this player certainly didn’t. Watch out for those kinds of men. The oh-so charming on the outside, selfish beyond belief on the inside guy, who talked two women into remarrying him after cheating on them, is not the only one of his type. Unfortunately, there are others like him out there. There are also women like that, so guys need to be careful too.
