LILY Letter 113: Is Remarriage Worth It?

June 6, 2023

We recently attended the sealing of a remarried LILY couple with a blended family of 9 children. It hasn't been an easy road for them, but they say it IS worth it. Building a new marriage relationship later in life comes with complications. Co-parenting with former spouses, dealing with the trauma and reactions of your children, and combining a lifetime of separate households can be a daunting task. Why do we do it? Because when it's a good thing, it really is worth it!

Getting another chance at love can be one of the most redeeming and life affirming endeavors one can experience. When marriage is entered with wisdom and plenty of intentional healing and growth before and throughout the new marriage, we can witness a miraculous transformation. Showing up better than we did in previous relationships, we have the unique opportunity for richer and deeper love. We appreciate the opportunity to love and be loved more when we have lost that opportunity previously and been granted that chance again.

This week we explore the aspects of "Healthy Remarriage" in our podcast. In our video, we react to a couple clips from an avid woman basher who believes women these days simply aren't worth it anymore (stay tuned for part 2 next week!). While Pearl Davis makes some valid points, we believe there are good men and women in this world and that by staying focused on finding those gems, the rest simply won't matter. Remarriage is worth it when we go about it intentionally.
