Divorce has become a part of our social fabric, says RSVP's relationship expert and psychologist, John Aiken. "I think the stigma has really dropped away with regards to divorce. There are more people getting divorced than ever, it's something that's commonplace in the media, with celebrities, and kids are growing up with divorce, they're coming from divorced families," he says.

And, according to The Age, there are a slew of reasons supporting the stance that divorced men make a good catch. These include everything from relationship experience to character building. However, the article points out, that individuals and their past relationships should be examined on a case-by-case basis. Have you ever dated someone who's been through a divorce?

    I have been married for 48 years. Being straight, I would not date a divorced man if my wife threw me out of the house tomorrow! LOL !

    I don't play anymore. I'm 15, I don't do such kiddy things. And why should I observe? Observing is boring.
  • LisaSmith Nika 2012/07/06 06:48:08

    Actually you can learn a lot from observing.
  • Nika LisaSmith 2012/07/06 07:37:50

    I am not saying you can't learn a lot from observing, but simply saying I don't particularily like doing it. I'd rather stay home and read a book.
  • LisaSmith Nika 2012/07/06 15:42:48

    Then read books. Enjoy being young while you can because it doesn't last long. Pretty soon it is work work work.

    I know what it will be. It will start after the summer vacation, since I'm going to one of the top high schools, which really take the all out of you. And after that the studies, which won't be easy either. Then my work as a vet - it probably won't be easy either, especially the operations. But I try to look at it enthuisiastically - as long as I will like what I do, I will not feel the weight on my shoulders.

    I think so too. If I didn't like what I do, there would be no sense in doing it.

    Well then, I'll keep searching. If I won't find him, I'll happily spend time with my sister's kids. I will try to accept the fate life gave me.

    Unfortunately YES many times, since most of you women believe in marrying & having children with the first abusive douchebags because of no father of your own and no real moral support from a fake mother and really immature friends, everyone is suffering for it, especially the children, I could go on for days about this but you get the idea.

    I'm on Marriage number 4 so I must be one hell of a good catch, LOL. Seriously though after divorce number 3, I did some serious soul searching. Not that it was all me but I had to take responsibility for the issues I owned. I was choosing the wrong people to get emotionally involved with. After coming to Christ and giving my life to him he eventually lead me to my soul mate. We have been married Five years now and r very happy. The problem with me and a lot of folks is we don't usually take the time to figure out what really went wrong. It's too easy to just blame the ex. Take time to heal and get rid of the baggage. Think about what u need to do to be a better spouse next time. If I had done that I might only be on marriage number 2 not 4. Just friendly advice from someone who took the long hard road.

    I think the second time around, men and women (some) are not as willing and determined to try to change the person they are with. I think that's a huge problem with first marriages.. you marry the person and THEN... well, maybe you can just change this about you, then.... would you change that for me.... and how about.... will you not do that.... pretty soon you have someone who you don't recognize and guess what you created them. Second time around, men and women are not as apt to become who you think they want you to be... I think in my own life now, it's this is how I am.. take it or leave it...if you take it, you'll also be appreciated for who you are and not what I think you should be... JMO....and everyone's got one..

    I have dated a divorced man + they are Not a good catch, they have loads of baggage, are looking for a mug to take them on, have a home provided + all it`s comforts.
    I would steer well clear. Too many problems as you age to consider marriage agaain.
    Life is much simpler + stress free on your own.

    My husband & I have both been through a divorce, this time we knew what we wanted and were both unwilling to compromise since we knew where that would get us (another divorce). People need to remember you can't change someone to make them who you want them to be. Most people(not all) who have been divorced realize this and look for someone they are compatible with as they are instead of someone they have to 'fix'.
