The Ugly Truth Behind my First Fairytale – Divorced at 25 

When I tell people I’m getting married this year they are full of excitement for me. They tell me how amazing the run up is, how fast it all goes by on the day and they give me advice from their own experiences. They never even consider this isn’t my first marriage.
