Is it a deal breaker if someone is divorced?

Let's say you met a really nice guy or girl that you see potential with. But they told you on the second date that they married young and divorced within a year. Is that something that would be a deal breaker for you?

I've always thought that it would be for me, but now I'm questioning it. I don't know. What do you guys think?

  • I don't think that should be a deal-breaker if there aren't any children. It's just another previous relationship. Everyone has them. Children complicate things, and in that case you should be cautious. Not completely opposed, but cautious and thoughtful.

  • Not a deal breaker for me. Just because the relationship didn't work with someone else doesn't mean it won't work with me 😌 Also, since they were young when married, chances are they haven't settled down financially and matured yet.

  • It's only a deal breaker if she has a kid.

  • For any man foolish enough to want to get married, consider that if it's both partners' first marriage, the chance of divorce is over 50%.

    If ONE of them is on their second marriage, that jumps to about 80%.

    If either is on their third, it's around 90%.

    Since I won't get married again, IDGAF about if a bitch has already got a divorce under her belt. We won't be living together, I won't be putting a ring on it, so what's it matter? It doesn't, plain and simple.

  • No, why should it be? Would you have a problem with someone who'd been in a long term (but not married) relationship for ten years and then broke up?

  • A relationship is an agreement between two people in love.
    Marriage is a legal contract with the government. It takes a court of law and usually lawyers to end it.

    There really is no difference in ending a relationship and a divorce. The result of the relationship is the same.

    The big difference in the two is the financial mess it creates.

    A divorced person should be treated the same as any person who has been in a relationship that ended.

    Think about it...

  • During an era when about 50 per cent of marriages end in divorce, excluding everyone who has been divorced shrinks the pool of potential partners down to a fairly small pond.

  • It's not a deal breaker, Just don't get married to him in under a year.
    And don't sell yourself short, there are hundreds and hundreds of unique and fun people everywhere.
    Remain your own.

  • Totally depends on how the divorce ended and if kids are involved. Kids are a deal breaker, divorce can be but isn't always.

  • At my age, that's not a deal breaker, but it's rare. I would still be open for a relationship if the ex was not in the picture.
