I was married in 1960 and divorced in 1967. Since that divorce 42 years ago — except for one 15-year live-in relationship that was marriage-like (or, if you prefer, marriage-lite) — I’ve been happily single. When someone asks me if I expect to ever marry again (which happens pretty often even at my advanced age) I usually reply that I would at least consider it, on one condition. I may well marry for the second time, I say, but only if I can find a woman who understands me — and is willing despite that.

As someone approaching that stage of life, I like your perspective.
