Can you marry the person you divorced?
Many people who divorce later come to realize they made a mistake. Nevertheless, divorced couples can – and do – find ways to not only repair their damaged relationship, but to re-marry.

What if I am married but I have a baby with another woman?
Sometimes a married woman gives birth to a child whose biological father is not her husband.
