Out of curiosity, how is it a failure if they married in church vs civilly?
Because civil marriage isn't considered a real marriage at church. I know it's harder to find men my age but am willing to take that chance.

IDDY, does this feel like a brand new discussion topic to you?

I have a very specific belief system and that is marriage is for life. Many people don't agree and they aren't guys I would date.

Why if the ex was a selfish "B" that NO MAN could ever make them happy?

So if there would be one that's for you he could try to get an annulment in that scenario and then marry you in a church.

I'm a Cadillac ooops I mean Catholic too.

It's everyone's fault! We're living in a world or moral turpitude!

For your sake, you should date a man who has never been married and has absolutely no desire to marry.

But you admit that you were a horrible girlfriend and that's why all your boyfriends left you?

If you are so okay with being alone - why even start all these threads?

And are you going to wear white at your wedding even though you are not a virgin? Can you even have a true marriage before God given that you have already given yourself to someone else?

Well you shouldn't be so easily offended. Perhaps those people realize something you dont which is that you probably need to lower your 'standards' if you are to find a good man. You seem like the type that is so focused on the details that you miss the whole point, a good man is a good man, whether he 'failed' at marriage or not.
