Congratulations are in order for Christina Milian and her longtime boyfriend Jas Prince. The couple began dating in 2010 and have been engaged since May. “He’s a great match for her,” a source close to Milian told People. Milian was previously married to music producer The Dream. The pair separated in 2010 when pictures surfaced of him being straddled by his assistant. Milian was pregnant with their daughter, Violet, at the time.
How do you avoid becoming jaded about marriage after a divorce?
Marriage is meant to last a lifetime, but sometimes it doesn’t work out that way. You’ve been through a divorce and now you’re in a relationship you can see yourself being fully committed to. After everything you’ve been though it’s tough to stay positive and remain hopeful for a long lasting commitment. Cupid has some advice:
1. Don’t repeat the same mistakes:¬†Think about what went wrong in your previous marriage. What was your role in the downfall of your relationship? Own up to your mistakes and prevent yourself from repeating history with your new honey. Don’t blame your current partner for what your old one may have done to you in the past.
2. Talk to someone:¬†Before you commit to your significant other, talk to a few loved ones or a therapist about any unresolved issues over your last relationship. You might not be as over the divorce as you think. You need to be able to openly express your worries and doubts over a new marriage. If you don’t, you may never move forward with your life.
3. Take all the time you need:¬†There’s no need to rush to tie the knot again. Many divorcees wait years before remarrying again. If your honey is serious about what the two of you have and is in it for the long run, he/she will wait until you’re ready to take the next step with them.
