The Pros and Cons to Getting Engaged to a Guy Who Was Engaged Before
Then you'll want to read this.
Pro: He can commit.
If he proposed to someone in the past, the dude clearly doesn't fear commitment. So if marriage is your priority, you're likely in luck (unless his last experience turned him off marriage totally).
Con: He may be willing to commit too quickly.
Lots of factors could've broken the engagement, but it's possible that your man proposed before the relationship had made it to the next level. And he may move too fast again. On the other hand...
Pro: He may be a lot surer before he proposes again.
If he feels like he made a mistake in the past, he'll do several gut checks pre-proposal.
Con: It may take him longer to propose.
Since he may feel like he rushed the first time, he may wait (and wait) until he's 110% sure you're the woman he wants to marry.
Pro: His family will be happy he's found someone new and wonderful.
After the last dud, they may welcome a great girl like you with open arms.
Con: They may be suspect of you since the last one didn't work out.
Expect some grilling from Mom, Dad, and siblings too because they want to make sure you're the real deal.
Pro: He knows how to save for and buy an engagement ring.
If he did it once, he can do it again (especially if the ex returned the engagement ring).
Con: You'll always know that he proposed before.
Maybe this is no big deal to you. Great! But if it bothers you that you won't be the first girl he'll ask to marry, you have to get over it or that proposal won't be the happy moment you deserve.
