Second marriages should be seen as a second chance in love rather than getting into the same social drill. Aayush from Bonobology talks about why getting married second time is a good thing.
When marrying for the first time or second time, it’s essential to know each other before committing. In some ways, it gets easier the second time as you become more mature and learn from past mistakes as well. Marriages are made in heaven, as the saying goes. However, what do you do if your marriage fails? Wouldn’t you look for a new partner? Wouldn’t you think of divorcing your partner and search a partner with whom you could stay for the rest of your life?
The current scenario in India second marriages
The Indian society was against divorce and second marriages, people used to look with raised eye-brows when anyone in the community would file for divorce or go for a second marriage. But these days India has seen lots of changes and people are changing for better.
We have seen many second marriages in India and people are accepting it without any criticism. This is a significant change in Indian society.
Why are second marriages better?
When you marry for the first time, you usually don’t think about many things that would come along with marriage. You are young and much in love. But with the second marriage, you are well aware that the story does not end with the initial phase of the married life like in movies.
As such, marrying for the second time would not be as difficult as it was the first time because your ego is not tied into holding your ground like it was when you were younger. And as you have settled for the second marriage with the person who you know better and would keep you happy, it becomes easier.
