And he's probably not interested in taking care of your 20 cats.

Correct. Divorce is allowed but is not looked upon favorably in the eyes of God. Remarriage is to be allowed only if the other party committed adultery.

In the Catholic Church they are allowed to receive communion but not allowed to remarry in church without an annulment. They aren't allowed to receive communion if they remarry without an annulment.

Meh. She had a whole post awhile ago listing how she wouldn't be number one, how he wouldn't want a big wedding, he would have done stuff before with the other wife....... basically a "me, me, me" list of what is truly trivial cr@p when it comes to the important stuff of picking a life partner.

Honestly, if you haven't learned to not to paint with so broad a brush, and see everything as black and white by the time you are 42 I don't think you have learned some life lessons that are critical.

You probably aren't destined for marriage - for a variety of reasons.

Good I'm glad a man like that isn't interested in me. Besides my cat (and I only have one btw)wouldn't affect my money or dating but nice try.

Yes shame on me for wanting a man who hasn't done the marriage thing before. Very few people want a partner who has done things that they haven't before so not alone.

Not true. Some people marry the wrong person. You can tell when someone is in love with their ex still.

I think there's a pretty good chance of you being alone the rest of your life. We learn from our mistakes....if someone "failed" (as you so judgementally put it) they may have gone through a period of introspection in what happened in the relationship, leading to personal growth and as a result, becoming a better partner. However, no one is perfect. If you are waiting for Mr. Perfect you will be waiting a long time for him to come around, and as another poster said, they must find you acceptable as well.
