Couple remarry nearly 50 years after their divorce
'This time we'll make it work.'
Ollie Ingram of Tamworth, England, divorced her first husband, Wills Holmes, back in 1965. On Saturday, after almost 50 years apart, they walked back down the aisle together.

Since their divorce 48 years ago, both Ingram and Holmes married other people. Ingram's husband passed away three years ago, at 72. Holmes' third wife passed away last summer.
Then, 18 months ago, Ingram, 76, and Holmes, 79, reunited at a family gathering. Their daughter, Lisa, invited them both to a Christmas party. Ingram told the Daily Mail:
“We agreed that Wills would stay at my cottage that night, but I didn’t expect it to be in my bed.”
The couple immediately rekindled their romance, and Holmes soon proposed with the same ring he bought Ingram when she was 17.
So why didn’t it work out the first time? Ingram says,
"We were together for 10 years and had two children, but we had got married too young and it was our first proper relationship, so things went wrong and we split up.”
“This time we’ll make it work,” Holmes vowed. Read the rest of their story here.Bing: Dating your ex again

Well my ex told me he would have my engagement ring cleaned / restored for me.
I asked him for it on numerous occassions and never received it back. He is now married again .... I believe he used it with his new wife and probably passed it off as "my mother's ring so you must be special wifey"! Cheapskate and downright liar!
A lot of people think it is "cheap" of him to give the same ring.....I think it is special, maybe she wanted the same ring for sentimental reasons. After all.....what man would have kept up with the SAME ring after all these years. She must mean an awful lot to him for him to still have the same ring. I think it is so very sweet. Best of Luck to both of them!
