From Dr. Jane's Notebook

That thing about relationships

When love has gone terribly wrong and divorce leaves people alone, the desire to be in a new relationship is compelling. After all, people love to fall in love, love to get engaged, and love to put on a wedding, but the building of a strong marriage after the wedding is a completely different challenge. Chronically high divorce rates in first, second, and third marriages reveal the difficulty of this task. Here are a few more thoughts on the matter.

People remarry for many different reasons. While being single is often lonely and overwhelming, it is wise to be very selective when dating and getting to know prospective partners. Take time to find someone who shares your concept of teamwork. Wait for someone who values you and wants to co-create a healthy life together. You deserve the best and those who love you will appreciate your patience!
