In case of second marriages, what do you feel comes first in a partner?

Second marriages are a fresh start that are often laden with baggage of past trauma. In such a case, are men and women any different going in? Is your heartbreak and healing lesser or more in the equation? Most importantly, does society really get what you endure?

If you are getting into a new relationship having healed yourself, then things will pan out differently but if you are still unhealed
and carrying a baggage, then it’s going to be a rough ride.It will show up sooner or later in the relationship.
It’s better to be alone and heal yourself before you walk into another soon after breaking up.
Time heals but we have to make efforts to heal ourselves as well.

Understanding and trust comes first – be it whatever number of marriage or relationship.

But how does the start of the relationship feel like? Like both the people are on an equal position or not? Or does patriarchy work here too?

Yes there is baggage. But there are also lessons. The failure of the previous marriage would mean you know how to be a better partner now with some introspection and thought. That can be used to make the new beginnings hitch free

I don’t think society does. But you’ll definitely walk into this knowing yourself and what relationships entail better.
