Why does a marriage sometimes not work out the first time?

Cupid’s Advice:

Unlike getting a license to drive or taking the SATs to get into college, getting  married does not require a well thought out plan of action:

1. You were young: If your first marriage followed a quick engagement and an even quicker courtship, you may have never gotten the chance to think things through rationally.

2. You didn’t understand: In today’s society with TV shows rushing everyone to the alter and Las Vegas offering one-stop shops for weddings, the actuality and sanctity of marriage can be easily forgotten.

3. You didn’t know yourself: Before a relationship with someone else will work, you need to be in a good relationship with yourself.
