The Second Weddings Series: Introduction

By  | 

The failure of a first marriage caused due to differences between the partners or in some cases, the sudden death of one of the partners can cause immense stress in almost every area of life. Besides the whispered ‘hushes’ that often take place between relatives, most people tend to lose confidence in themselves and wonder if they will ever be lucky enough to find their soul mate.



On a lighter note, couples who opt for a second marriage are more likely to be happier and to stay committed in comparison to couples who are married for the first time. Although some experts say that experience in the many demands of a marriage could account for this fact, others attribute it to better self-knowledge as well.


In a country like India where marriage is considered sacrosanct, failed marriages are often the subject of both curiosity and gossip. However, people’s perceptions are changing and although it may be slow, no one can deny that the wave of change is a sure and steady one. Women and men are accepting of the fact that there can be a much better life that awaits even as the doors to a bad first marriage are firmly closed.
