Getting Remarried: Tips for Second Time Around

Starting afresh in a new relationship after a failed marriage or a break-up can be daunting. But if you have decided to give it another shot and seek a new partner, it is essential to start on the right foot. This is especially the case when the new relationship is heading towards marriage. Planning a second wedding and preparing to share your life with someone new has its own set of challenges. Here are some tips that can help you navigate the process of getting remarried and build a strong foundation for your new future.

Work on your emotional baggage.

Before walking down the aisle for the second time, take some time to unpack your emotional baggage from the past. Understand what caused the failure of your previous marriage, and identify things you need to work on to prevent history from repeating itself. Consider seeing a therapist or counselor for support and guidance in this regard.

Discuss future goals and expectations.

Before tying the knot again, get on the same page with your new partner on matters like finances, children, and lifestyle choices. Discuss your future goals, expectations, and desires for the marriage, and ensure you both share similar values and priorities.

Seek premarital counseling.

Premarital counseling can be an excellent way to set the foundation for a successful second marriage. The counseling process allows couples to uncover potential challenges and learn effective communication and problem-solving skills to ensure they can build a strong and lasting relationship.

Plan a wedding that reflects you both.

Plan a wedding that reflects who you are as a couple, whether it's a traditional ceremony or something more unconventional. As this is your second wedding, don't be afraid to steer away from some of the standard wedding traditions and instead focus on what is meaningful to you both.

Focus on the present.

Remember that this is a new start, a new chapter in your life. It's essential to leave your past behind and start focusing on your future together. Celebrate the love you share and commit to building a loving and respectful marriage.


Starting over after a failed marriage can be a daunting and challenging experience. However, with the right attitude, knowledge, and support, you can build a stronger and more lasting relationship with someone new. Remember to work on yourselves, plan for your future together, seek premarital counseling, plan a wedding that aligns with your values, and focus on the present. By taking these simple tips to heart, you can make your second time around a true success. If you’re in Orlando and need a marriage counselor, contact Orlando Thrive Therapy for more information.
