Is being married and divorced three times a sign of the inability to make a marriage work?

Report as

Being married three times and divorced does not necessarily mean that you are unable to make a marriage work. It might be something else that is out of control. Talking to a professional marriage therapist might help understand what it is.

No, look at Larry King, the television personality, who was married about 7 times before he could make it work.

It could be but we don't have enough information on your situation to make a judgement.

I'm searching for reasons I guess as to why a person would keep getting married after 3 divorces?

Humans have a natural desire to seek a mate no matter how many times they have been divorced.

Means the odds of a fourth succeeding re not the best. Perhaps you're not meant to be the marrying type. no shame in that

It's a good indicator yes. But there are many factors that go into it

Either that or an inability to choose the right mate.

Just a sign of bad decisions or rushing into things.

You'd think he'd learn his lesson after the 2nd divorce.

Maybe he has a lot of stuff that he needs to get rid of. Half of it at a time.

Perhaps you keep choosing the wrong type of people to marry.

Marriage isn't for everybody, some people are just happier being single and free to date around.

Not necessarily. I know of a particular gentleman who has been married 5 times. He is one of the most trusting and caring man I ever met. To each wife he was loyal and faithful and a great provider. But number one died, number two ran off with someone else, number three married for citizenship then failing that she divorced him and ran off, number four decided after 18 years she was a lesbian and asked for a divorce, Number five has been with him over 12 years and they are the happiest couple you will ever meet. Your soul mate is out there. Just be careful and patient.

It's a sign of bad choices, a sign that perhaps you made choices without really knowing what you were getting into because you were blinded by love, missed red flags, ignored facts, it's not your failure to make a marriage work its your failure to marry someone before you really knew them well enough due to your own inability to see the whole person, just the side you wanted to see.

It may be a sign, of not knowing how to pick someone who is compatible for you. You can look online, to find out how. Take care.
