Everybody (including me) has a past.
When I was in my early 20s, I married a Ukrainian man who was an alcoholic. I was young and naïve, so I didn’t know anything at that time. I thought I did the right thing until I realized that he married me for the wrong reasons. There is a difference between liking someone and wanting to use someone.
I couldn’t respect that anymore because he married me for the convenience rather than for love. What’s more, every time when I went out with my ex-husband socially, he was always showing me off. I thought maybe he was proud of me, but in reality, he was glad that he has found someone who could be useful to him. Even being able to show off is also useful.
Frankly, I really didn’t like the reasons why my ex-husband married me. I was deeply, deeply sad when I was married to him. It looks like a stupid mistake now, but I only did what I could with what I knew at that time, so I don’t blame myself anymore.
My ex-husband is a charismatic man who looks 20 years younger than his biological age because he is very charming and fashion-conscious. Although he isn’t the most handsome guy in the world, both women and men would look at him all the time whenever we went out together. He isn’t gay, and I still don’t know why he has the ability to be a people magnet.
Anyway, I left my ex-husband after being married to him for about five years. That marriage was exhausting and draining; I never felt safe in that marriage due to the treatment that I received from him.
I decided to fill my own cup first in life, so after getting divorced, I worked on my mental health and wellbeing for a few years. Then I was ready to fall in love again; therefore, I joined Ukraine Brides Agency and met my foreign husband.
My second marriage is successful.
After meeting each other for the first time in reality, my American husband and I both knew this is meant to be – we hit it off immediately and the connection is definitely genuine.
We communicated with each other online and offline for about 1 year, and he proposed to me with a rare and beautiful tourmaline ring from America. I accepted the proposal and now we are happily married.
Because now I’m in my late 30s and I have learned a lot from my life experiences, I have become a mature woman with wisdom. I have learned that marriage has to be based on respect, authenticity and true love. Otherwise, a marriage wouldn’t last at all.
I love my husband because his love is genuine. He loves me for the right reasons – he appreciates my intelligence, work ethic, integrity, honesty, personality and values. I admire him because of who he really is: He is a hardworking, reliable, insightful, honest, genuine and modern man.
As I’m typing this article right now, I am 8 months pregnant. We are expecting a baby boy next month. This is my first baby, so I’m very, very excited right now. We are looking forward to meeting the baby boy.
I don’t take what I have now for granted. In order to show my appreciation, I’ve written a poem for my husband:
A moment like this
Some women wait for decades
For a moment like this
Some women wait until the end of time
My life is forever changed
The moment we kissed at our wedding
It even makes me wonder how I ever lived without you
