So be keenly aware of the pot you've jumped into and why. Gail Saltz, a New York psychiatrist and author who specializes in relationship issues, says it's difficult to pigeonhole people.
Twice-married people can indicate there are issues not understood or resolved, Saltz says. Relationship experts don't necessarily see problems with dating someone who has been divorced more than once, but it depends on circumstances. consistently reported at 30 to 50 percent, odds are pretty good that anyone on the dating scene is dancing, dining and moviegoing with someone who has been divorced, and often more than once."If you are thinking about casually dating someone who has had multiple marriages, then there is likely no issue," says psychologist Holly Parker, who teaches a course called "The Psychology of Close Relationships" at Harvard University.But if you want to progress to a committed relationship, there's more to think about, she says.First, consider why the person has been married three or four times, Parker says.
And ask yourself: Does this person acknowledge the mistakes he or she made that contributed to the divorces?
Research does suggest that people who marry multiple times are more likely (than people who do not marry multiple times) to have personality traits and issues with emotional health that make it difficult to maintain satisfying, long-term relationships, Parker says.
That can mean, even if you're not looking for anything lasting, you won't have much fun with a narcissist whose self-absorption and emotional detachment helped end several marriages.
For those married three or more times, it's more likely they have problems choosing someone appropriate or "staying the course" in intimate relationships.
Marcy Miller, author of "Rebooting in Beverly Hills: A Wise and Wild Path for Navigating the Dating World" (Bancroft Press), has been married four times.
She contends it's "absurdly judgmental" to assume anything from the fact that someone has had multiple marriages.
