Idris Elba is about to be married for the third time, so Steve Harvey asked his Straight Talk panel (Keri Hilson, Christine Larkin, and Dr. Tiffany Davis .
• • 2 years ago An interesting conversation between my divorced mother and father has me interested… My parents are both in their 50s and got divorced about 5 years ago. For the most part, they are still on good terms with eachother and have no problem getting together with the family as a whole.
A couple of weeks ago, my dad went to our family home (that my mom now owns) because she found some of his stuff while cleaning out the basement and he wanted to pick it up.
They decided to grab dinner together and that’s where this conversation occurred. My mom has been dating a man for about 3 years now. He’s never been married. My dad made a comment to my mom about how that is a big red flag. My dad has been dating a woman for about 3 years now as well. She has been married and divorced twice.
Although my mom didn’t say it at dinner, she commented to me later that she felt being married and divorced twice was a bigger red flag than never being married.
So, what are your thoughts? (Obviously younger Bees are invited to comment on this too.) • • 2 years ago • Wedding: September 2017 Hard to say, really. We can’t really know the reasons for anyone being in their 50s and never marrying or marrying and divorcing twice. I’m 32 and my fiance is 40.
He has never been married before because he hadn’t met the person he wanted to propose to until me. There was someone before me, but that was a big mess which doesn’t necessarily need to be told. I know the story, and that’s enough for me. As for myself, I have actually been married and divorced once, and also moved across the country with a cohabiting boyfriend and that relationship ended as well.
I think context is particularly important. I had my (good) reasons for ending my other two serious long-term relationships. He had his reasons for never having been married/engaged (or living with a partner) before me. The two of us are very close, we’ve been together for 6 years now, and especially in the first half of our relationship we tried to be very open about our respective pasts. • • 2 years ago • Wedding: April 2016 I agree more with your dad, I think it would be stranger to be in your 50’s and have never been married than to have been married twice.
I would just wonder what the reasoning was that they were never married. Either way not sure if it would sway my decision to date them.
• • 2 years ago I was trying to avoid details just because it was more of a hypothetical question. But for those intersted, my mother’s boyfriend was with a woman for many years who had a lot of health problems. During the years dealing with that, they could never afford to get married. She eventually passed away due to abusing her pain medication.
It was very sad and he didn’t date for a long time until he met my mother. As for my father’s girlfriend… I don’t know the circumstances behind her divorces. • • 2 years ago • Wedding: October 2016 It depends on the type of person they are. If it is a playboy/playgirl that has never been married, it may just mean marriage isn’t their thing. If it is a person who is difficult and set in their ways, it may make sense that they had not found someone compatible. I am 38 and my husband is older and this is our 1st marriage.
We have valid reasons for not marrying anyone from our past. We are mature and established individuals and our relationship has been pleasant. We have our ups and downs but we’re mature and are “old” enough to respect each other. On the flip side, if he was unstable and immature, I’d give him the side eye. But he has been with the same company (a major insurance company) for 24 years, has excellent credit/good with money and carries himself with respect.
I think it truly depends on the person and circumstances. This is a good post by the way! • • 2 years ago I would think the older unmarried person would be a red flag if they said they WANTED to get married, but never met the right person…if they said they never wanted to get married, then no, I don’t think it is a red flag… As far as the man’s relationship with the long term girlfriend – I almost think that situation is more of a red flag than not getting married…you don’t need a lot of money to “get married” As far as being divorced twice – I think there are different factors there as well…if she was really only in two long term relationships and they were both marriages/divorces, I don’t think that is as much of a red flag than if she had a couple short term marriages and a bunch of other short term or long term relationships • • 2 years ago As someone who is 30+ and never married, I would prefer the never married person.
Two divorces? I’d be wondering the real reason they had two failed marriages. There are plenty of good reasons an older person may have for not having been married, that includes not finding a suitable partner. • • 2 years ago • Wedding: June 2016 My mom was in her 40s when she and my dad divorced. She dated a guy for about 6 years who had never been married. He didn’t have a back story like your mom’s boyfriend and had just never met “the right one”.
Unfortunately, he led my mom on (unintentionally) for 5 years telling her he wanted to marry her – but the end, he finally came clean to himself and to her that if he was ever going to marry someone, it would be her, but he just didn’t think he was the “marrying type”. She met and married a wonderful divorced man a couple of years later and is very loved and very happy. My dad married a woman after my mom who was twice divorced and they got divorced in less than a year.
After that, he married a different woman who was twice divorced and they couldn’t be any more perfect for each other. Point being, I think it depends on the individual person. I’m a big proponent of paying attention to a person’s actions and words and believeing what they “tell” you – that first guy my mom dated was “not the marrying kind” from the beginning.
I think my mom knew it deep down, but hoped he would change his mind. Same with my dad’s second wife (after my mom) – I think my dad knew she was a bad fit for him, but was in love with the idea of being in love. Her reasons for divorce were super sketch and made zero sense. His now third wife has very “real” stories for her previous divorces, she seems very genuine. If I had to choose, I would say the “never married” would be the bigger initial red flag with no other knowledge, but I would be interested in getting to know the back story of both before making any judgement calls.
I think the reason for the divorces or the reason for never being married is more important than the status. • • 2 years ago • Wedding: August 2016 I can’t fathom why an older unmarried person would automatically be a red flag more than someone who had two failed marriages.
Yeah, if the unmarried person is clearly a perpetual player type, fine, but someone who has just maybe not found the right person who they wanted to truly commit to? Not that unusual. I think a lot of divorces are caused by this messed up thinking process of “if I don’t get married by X age, people will think I’m weird” so they move forward with marrying the wrong person, just to be married and not face the pressure anymore.
Very few people stand against the societal and familial pressures to get married, unfortunately. Those who do usually don’t have a list of divorces in their background. • • 2 years ago I’m going to be 41 and its going to be my first marriage. Look, I never wanted to marry, I was independant and I didnt NEED a man. I NEVER waited around hoping, praying some guy would ask me. That’s not who I am. The men that I dated where eh, okay.
Some were long term, some weren’t. I had my career, great friends and I did my own thing. Never felt a void in my life and I have a friend at work who is the same.
He’d rather travel the world than be married or have a nagging girlfriend. Look its not 1950 now. People have changed. If it was 1950 and you werne’t married then yes people would wonder why. If a person has been divorced 2-3 times then my eyebrow would go up. Are they lazy and don’t want to work on things, do they make poor choices on who to marry. Do they marry too quickly and then say oh snap? • • 2 years ago • Wedding: January 2017 Neither one is worse than the other.
The twice divorced lady could have just had shit luck, perhaps she initiated one divorce and the other husband initiated the other.
Who knows? Your mother’s bf could have always dreamed of getting married but life and his financial circumstances prevented it. It’s better for both parents to stop judging eachothers partners and actually see the potential there. • • 2 years ago • Wedding: November 1999 I’m just over 50 and wouldn’t rule someone out for any reason to do with whether they were single or divorced.
Even those who like suggested there’s a problem if they wanted to marry but “couldn’t find the right person” – sure, why not? I know someone who’s a lovely guy but kind of shy and awkward, and didn’t marry until his 40s. I would perhaps raise an eyebrow at multiple previous marriages (like 3 or more) but even that could depend.
• • 2 years ago Older person in his 50s and NEVER been married? Yes, it would be a major red flag for me since I want to remarry. Not saying it doesn’t happen but you’re telling me that you reach your 50s and have never found ONE person you have felt compelled to settle down with/marry?
Again, of course it matters because I am marriage minded (else I wouldn’t care otherwise). So yeah, I would rather the person is twice divorced assuming the person is very self aware and compatible with me (as long as there isn’t any baggage from the past/exes and small children, etc. involved (I am 38 and my kids will be grown when I am in my late 40s so I dont plan to deal with small kids after that).

Sometimes, the divorce takes place because of misunderstanding, and sometimes it happens because one is cheating on the other. Joe Scarborough was the talk of the town more than once because of his personal life. However, despite the saddening end to his marriage for the past two times, it seems Joe hasn't yet lost all his beliefs in marriage. In love again, the journalist has found love again and is all set for yet another adventure in life with a third marriage.
His First Married Life, Wife, and Children: Joe Scarborough was married to Melanie Hinton in 1986. The couples were dating since college; however, after over a decade long of relationship as husband and wife, the couple decided to split in 1999.

After the divorce, they shared joint custody of their two children (sons), Joey and Andrew, who are all grownups now.

(Photo: dailymail.co.uk) However, following a failed first marriage, Joe hadn't given up just yet. Married for Second Time: Children and Divorce? After returning to being a bachelor, Joe found his way back to love in 2001 when he got married to Susan Waren, who is a former aide to the Florida Governor and also a former Congressional committee staffer.
This time again, after about a decade-long married life, the couple decided to get a divorce in 2012. At that time they had two children. A ten-year-old daughter and a 5-year-old son. Joe Scarborough with wife Susan Waren.
(Photo: wagpolitics.com) The divorce was apparently a quiet one as his wife filed the divorce documents without creating a mess in September of 2012. The reason was a bit perplexed however as in the divorce documents obtained by TMZ, Susan made a few unusual clauses in which she acknowledged that Joe was faithful, devoted and committed when another sentence pointed towards her allegations that Joe was cheating on her.
There were rumors back then that Joe was dating ‘Morning Joe’ co-host Mika Brzezinski(who is married) as his girlfriend which both of them denied in a media event in 2009. Joe, who earned a massive $99,038 at that time, had to pay somewhat a little amount as divorce settlements. He was not required to pay child support for his two children with wife Susan.
He had to pay over $30,000 per month for five years and $25,000 for the next two years after that. In addition to that, Joe paid a sum of $150,000 and agreed to pay the mortgage on their Connecticut home and to pay for his children’s schooling. The couple lived together before the divorce was finalized but lived under strict rules of not visiting each other’s room except for child emergency.
Currently, there is no news about Joe being romantically linked to anyone or in any kind of romantic relationship. He has remained a bachelor since his split with ex-wife Susan Waren. Joe Dating 'Morning Joe' partner Mika Brzenzinski? The relationship between Joe and co-host has always been ambiguous. The two were considered an amazing pairing ever since they started their gig on 'Morning Joe, 2,2017, ' and many have complimented their chemistry.
Rumors and speculations had always spread about the two's mutual relationship, even more so after Joe hinted that the two might share a relationship outside of work and when President Trump dropped a massive ball on their relationship.
"Someday, when things calm down, I'll tell the real story of @JoeNBC and his very insecure long-time girlfriend, @morningmika. Two clowns!" But these rumors were confirmed truth after the two revealed that they were now engaged. Sources claim that Joe proposed to Mika on her 50th birthday in Antibes at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc’s Bar Bellini o2, 2017.
Obviously, she said yes, Mika was later reported talking about the whole experience stating, “His glasses were fogging up he was so nervous. I kept thinking he really must not have felt well. When I saw him on one knee, I started laughing nervously, almost hysterically. And then he asked, and I said, ‘Absolutely.’ " Their journey was not that easy, however, both of them were married when first started working out and both of them got divorced in recent years.
Mika further talked about how she couldn't hold back her feelings for him anymore stating, "Over the past year and a half, I realized I had to face these feelings and that it was time to stop putting them in a box. It was not an easy process and it was not an easy set of decisions for either of us.
It was something I couldn’t deny anymore.” The couple plan to take it slow and steady as they have their work cut out for them. Between Work, family and their children, they have a lot to get right before they are ready to take their vows together. But Joe insisted that he wouldn't let anything get between them and was quoted saying, “We want to spend the rest of our lives together and that’s more important than what management will think and critics will think or anybody else.” With the couple making their engagement news official, the further good news was in store for the duo.
Third Time Lucky? Following his engagement with his co-anchor Mika, Joe escalated the relationship to the next level with a secret wedding held on 24 November 2018. The Morning Joe co-hosts performed the nuptials in the presence of only close friends and family at the National Archives in Washington, D.C.
Get To Know: Joe Scarborough and wife Mike Brzezenski cut their four-layered wedding cake. (Photo: vanityfair.com) In a statement released to Vanity Fair post their wedding, Joe and his new wife revealed the reason behind their closed-doors wedding ceremony. "We wanted it to be really small and simple and not what you expected from Mika and Joe.
Everything we do is exposed, and everything felt exposed every step of the way, so we want this to be private until it’s over. We wanted to recognize it more quietly and have the people who are most important to us around us. And you know, our show is a cocktail party every morning.” Brzezinski, a mother of two from her past relationship that ended after 22 years of marriage in 2016, accompanies Joe on the list of people performing their wedding more than once.
The duo who have been extremely cautious about the privacy relating to their personal life can finally roam around openly without it being a big deal. For Joe, however, with two failed marriages behind him, he wishes the third time to be the charm.
