My "starter" marriage happened when I was very young: 21 years old (too young for me anyway). I was divorced by age 23. I don't regret it; I think I did most of my growing up during that time. I was serving my country far away from home, he was also serving 2,000 miles away from me during our first year of marriage. It was a challenge and ultimately we realized that it could not work.
For the last 8 years, I've been enjoying life while still in the military, traveling and dating...Dating is not for the faint of heart, that's for sure. Dating is like riding a roller coaster after you eat your favorite lunch. You are looking forward to it but you know there is a high possibility that it will not end well. I dated for 8 years and I can confirm that they were truly up and down. In fact, last year I truly started thinking that I was getting so used to living the single life I thought it would be nearly impossible to ever live with anyone again.
Well, let's just say that just when you think it's not going to happen...it does....more to follow.
