A Fresh Start for Your Second Marriage

In different parts of the world, the subject of remarriage can often be a hot topic. For instance, check out this article about the stir one advertisement is causing in India. When you watch the ad, you slowly realize hat this is the second marriage for both the bride and the groom. This may not seem like a big deal to some viewers, but in India, divorced or widowed women are often considered outcasts. The ad breaks with tradition and may mark a changing attitude toward remarriage.

While remarriage isn’t as controversial in the United States, it can still be sensitive territory to navigate for engaged couples. Here are a few of the issues to consider when planning a second marriage. 

The Big Decisions

When you decide to get remarried, it's obviously a different situation than your first marriage. You and your spouse-to-be have new priorities and preferences, and you'll have a lot of decisions to make together. For example:

  • What kind of wedding do you want? Do you want a big, traditional ceremony? Or do you prefer a small affair where you exchange wedding ring sets in front of only close friends and family? 
  • What's your budget? What elements of your wedding do you want to prioritize? 
  • Do you want to have a wedding party? If either of you has children, do you want to involve them in the ceremony?
  • Who do you want to invite to your wedding? How do you want to announce the news to your friends and family? 
  • Do you want all the traditional events leading up to the wedding-- bachelor and bachelorette parties, wedding showers, etc.? What is important to you both?

These are all big questions, and there are no right or wrong answers – it simply comes down to what you and your partner want. For instance, if your first wedding was smaller, you might want to make this the wedding you’ve always wanted. But if your first wedding was an extravaganza, you might opt to save money for the future and have a more intimate ceremony this time around. Much of this also depends on whether this is your partner’s second marriage as well. For example, if one of you has never married, he or she might want the whole wedding experience.

Making it Unique

The most important thing to keep in mind as you're planning your second wedding is that it's a fresh start. You may experience a few painful memories along the way or be tempted to say, "Well, the last time I did this..." but it's remember that this day is about you and your future spouse. Together you will make it unique and meaningful. 

Combining Families

Did you know that approximately 65% of remarrying couples bring children into their new marriage? That means that you and your soon-to-be spouse need to make sure you’re on the same page when it comes to raising your kids. What specific things you talk about depends on the children’s ages, but one thing you should definitely be thinking about is finances. Another is how you can make sure your kids feel as involved and included as possible at your wedding. Make sure your kids know that they are an important part of this new union and this new family you and your sweetheart are creating.

Wedding Ring Sets

You want rings that reflect your personal style, while at the same time opting for something that's totally different from what you had before.
