Tell me, would you marry a divorced woman?
Im asking this question to the bothers because I want to hear their answers.
I´m 24 years old, divorced. He was american and later converted to Islam.
Since i have grown up.. a lot I would say. I'm learning more about my faith and just started praying. ( i was not taught how to pray as a child) We got divorced because he did not treat me right.
Now, as a single "lonely" . I singed up to one of those arabic/islamic dating sites. Where i met at lot of weirdoes, but it gave me something to do when i was bored. ( and stopped hanging out with my friends) On the site, I did meet one "normal" man, who I really liked and hoped we would get married. He was older then me, about 30 he was religious, kind and educated, he seemed like everything I wanted. He flew out to meet me and stayed for the weekend (in a hotel, I didn't stay with him)
I was always honest with him regarding my past. After he met me, he decided to tell his parents. He parents thought getting married and having a child right a way would be too much for him to handle. After he spoke with his parents he ended things with me. I was crushed, one because he made it seem like it was my fault now no one will marry me, because i´m like a old used toy. (of course I do not look like that, i am fairly good looking, smart, I have good sense of humor) I was so shocked and crushed he took his parents advise. And why muslim (converts and non) don't accept divorced women?
So, I guess in a way i'm venting to you guys and I would like to know your opinion... How do you feel about marrying a divorced? Does it really factor in? I´m sincerely just asking your opinion on this, because i can´t seem to get over it.
