On falling back in love and getting back together with your ex spouse after divorce

Falling back in love with your ex after divorce is rather common, apparently.

Falling back in love with a spouse and getting back together with your ex after divorce is possible and happens more often than people realize. And it shouldn’t come as a big shock. The reason people married in the first place is because, usually, there was something in common, some kind of attraction, maybe even love. But it is possible that after marriage occurs, there is a break down in communication due to all sorts of extenuating circumstances. Or maybe there were unrealistic expectations about the marriage, etcetera, that caused the couple to call it quits.

But for a lot of people, about 54 percent, divorce is not better than being slightly unhappy in their marriages and for close to 100 percent of these, perhaps the notion of a second try is not totally repugnant and hence you have this phenomenon of falling back in love with your spouse.

That is to say, absence makes the heart grow fonder, sometimes and yea, it is possible to fall back in love, even in the most acrimonious of circumstances. Zara just did a post on Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s divorce. No word yet that they will be a reconciliation. But I told her that I would not be surprised if there is indeed one. Stranger things have happened.

I am personally all for giving love a second try. If you feel like you have fallen back in love with your ex, I say go for it. Didn’t Hollywood actress Elizabeth Taylor do it? As did Melanie Griffith & Don Johnson, Natalie Wood & Robert Wagner; Eminem; Larry King; And Elon Musk, the Silicon Valley billionaire married his second wife Tallulah twice. They still wound up divorcing a second time, this is true. But they tried the marriage twice. So it happens and it is possible to fall in love with the same spouse after you divorce them. So, voilà.
