Welcome to Making a Second Marriage Work

Yes, I'd once again like to welcome all of you to this wonderful support board. Alas, I hate to say this, but IT is not just for second marriages. If it were, I'd have been out of here about 18 years ago! I married my first XH in Feb of 1980, Valentine's Day. I married my 2nd XH in March of 1983. I married my 3rd XH November of 1985. I married my 4th XH May of 1996 or '97( We're not sure which!!).

I've also divorced each and every one of them!!! I took nothing but a few personal items and my son from any of my marriages. I asked for no alimony or child support. Well, I couldn't get CS frm an XH because I was never married to his father!! Thanks to the County DA Family Support Division, I did get CS from bio/father.

Okay, I did divorce #4 but, we are still together! It's been 13 years now. We were married for almost 2 years when we figured out that we would be better off unmarried. We've gotten along better since we filed divorce papers. Ain't that a hoot?!?

Oops, I forgot to post the reminder that I was supposed to be leading into with that welcome!!

It's about language this time!!!

If you get a message that states " the following objectionable word was found in your message: ____", please remember to choose an alternative word instead of trying to disguise it with symbols or extra letters. It might pass the filter like that, but if the 'powers that be' discover "masked vulgarity" it is recognizable as a "No-No" word, it will be removed and you will get a TOS violation warning. This is true even on the "Mature topics" / Sex boards, and applies even to creative writing/fantasy types of discussions.

So, remember to keep the symbols and objectionable words to a bare minimum. I haven't been on top of reporting these kinds of things but as it's been brought directly to my attention, I will have to begin doing so!! Don't make me turn you guys in!!!
