Hi Jenna. Of course you're not "damaged goods"! First of all, even if one person wants to work out problems in a marriage and puts his/her entire heart into it, it still won't do any good if the spouse is set on leaving. What about all these divorced people who have been lied to, cheated on, and abandoned by their spouses? Why should they be considered "damaged goods", it wasn't their fault. While I don't condone divorce and hope it will never happen to me, the fact is that divorce is a reality in today's society. 50% of all marriages fail. Yes, I would not mind dating a divorced man (depending on the reason of the divorce also) and in fact, I did date one, but he was just a player wanting to enjoy his single status with as many women as possible. Even so, I would still date another divorced man if he was a good person with qualities and values that are important to me.
