By Whitney Baker Johnson

Television personality and motorcycle customizer Jesse James recently said “I do” for the fourth time. According to People, he tied the knot with professional drag racer Alexis DeJoria on Sunday in Malibu at the home of her father, co-founder of the Paul Mitchell hair care products line and Patron Spirits Company. ABC News reported that the bride wore a strapless white dress with black details and showed off her extensive collection of tattoos. The couple, who live together in Austin, Texas, exchanged rings by well-known jeweler Neil Lane. James is no stranger to the tabloids: his divorce from Sandra Bullock made headlines in June 2010, while his broken engagement to Kat Von D was splashed across magazines in September 2011.

How do you keep your faith in marriage after a failed attempt?

Cupid’s Advice:

It’s not always easy to jump back into the dating game after getting burned by a bad relationship. It’s even harder to give marriage another shot after a failed attempt (or two). Cupid’s here to offer some advice:

1. Let go of bitterness. Before you can open yourself up to love again, you must leave behind the cynicism and negativity that may have filled your broken heart. After all, this bad attitude only hurts you. You look petty and jealous, and many people — potential suitors included — will be turned off by your behavior.

2. Know what you want. Take a look at your failed marriage and try to learn something positive from it. Why didn’t it work? What went wrong? Then, consider what you want in your next spouse. What are your relationship must-haves and deal breakers? Having a clear idea of your future love life will help you find an everlasting partnership.

3. Remember the good things about love. Once you adjust your attitude and determine what you’re looking for in your next relationship, you must be open-minded to true love. Immerse yourself in romance: watch your favorite rom-coms, listen to sappy songs and read your favorite books with fairy tale endings. Remind yourself that “happily ever after” does exist and that it can be your’s.
