How do you decide whether to get married for a second or third time?

Cupid’s Advice: 

Getting married is a huge deal. It involves legally binding documents, a public declaration of love and combining two lives into a shared one. Before making your decision, consider Cupid’s advice for you:

1. You have absolutely no doubts heading to the altar: You have a little experience under your belt, you’ve made this journey once or twice before. Yes, you may love your partner, but are they going to be able to support you financially and emotionally? You are now a team which means putting your own needs aside and considering what is best for the family.

2. You have had multiple conversations about marriage: This isn’t only considering the idealistic thoughts of marriage. These conversations include the nitty gritty details of possible financial instability, whether or not you’ll have more children, or are you choosing to forgo the prenup? Is this what is best for your children? There are a lot of aspects to take into account and angles to consider beyond where you will be honeymooning.

3. Your intuition is giving you the green light: Your gut feeling is probably the best judge of character. If you can picture yourself with this man for the rest of your life, working together in both the hard times and the bad, then go for it! Nothing should stop you from being with your true love.
