4 Reasons Why Second Marriages Are Happier and Last Forever

4. Couples have a sense of gratitude

In addition to drive, people who are in second marriages possess a deep sense of gratitude—gratitude for a second chance and gratitude for life and love, knowing how sweet and fleeting they are. Gratitude elevates us.

In her seminal book, Codependent No More, Melody Beattie describes the transformational powers of gratitude: “Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.”

 

So cheers to giving love (and marriage) a second chance!
