Only you can decide what’s best for you. But be careful. Try to remember why you divorced in the first place. By and large, behavior doesn’t change. If your spouse had a history of cheating on you in the past but now promises to be faithful forever, remember, he or she made that promise to you once before.
Can second marriages work? Sure. Have I divorced the same couple more than once? Yes. So before you remarry your ex, think long and hard about your life and your future — and whatever else you do, make sure you sign a premarital agreement before you say “I do” again.
