what should I know? My First, His second
Sun, 04-18-2004 - 12:24pm
My fiance and I are getting married (some time soon), we have been together for alittle over 2 years, and moved intogether a week after we meet ( I know it was fast, but when you find a good thing, you just know it!) Anyway, he has been married before, and it was a horrible marrage (she got pg, and her parents pushed the marrage) And 2 months after their wedding, she left, said she had had enough, and found someon else. He was really VERY hurt. When I met him, they had been seperated for over a year. He just recently got a divorce (she ran off with DD and we couldn't find them, so we waited until she surfaced to file for divorce) Anyway, the divorce is final, and because while ex was MIA she signed over prental rights of DD to her cousin, and lied before the judge saying she didn't know how to get ahold of my fiance, he is now having to take the cousin to court to get custody of DD. (We had her for a few weeks rigth aftter we got together before ex vanished, I love this little girl just like she is my own.) And we are planning on getting married after we get the DD thing straight, (don't know how long it will take, but it is already in the process, and the lawyer is very optimistic(sp?) ) My questions is, Is there anything I should know or prepair for, since this is his second and my first?

Any advice or input would be sooo appreicated.
