ENUMCLAW, Wash., July 15, 2020 /Christian Newswire/ -- More and more men and women over fifty-five are choosing to get married again after death and divorce*—though navigating such a path isn't always a happy bed of roses. But the authors of Second Chance at Love: Navigating the Path to Remarriage have traversed these rocky shores and offer practical insights for those considering romantic relationships after dealing with devastating losses due to death or divorce.
Six months after her memorable fortieth wedding anniversary trip, Shirley Quiring Mozena's beloved husband, Bill, lost his life to a stroke. The man who had been by her side for forty years was suddenly gone. Shirley felt like she was looking down a chasm into a world of nothing but fear and loneliness. During the months that followed, God walked her faithfully through grieving and brought her a second incredible man to share her life with. After a blissful but short seventeen months of marriage to Blair, he suffered a brain aneurysm and left her widowed once again. It seemed unbelievable that she would be forced to endure the grief of losing another great love so soon after her first loss. But God once again walked her through that fire and into healing. She was ready to be married again and wanted to meet the right person. But she found herself in a wrong relationship that ended in more heartbreak.
James (Jim) Patrick Mozena fought to keep his family together as his first wife and he attended counseling and sought ways to fix their broken relationship. But that marriage ended in divorce. He shares how God's extravagant grace and love brought him out of that brokenness and into a lengthy marriage with his second wife, Kathy. He tells about their challenges and the ways God intervened to make their marriage strong. Eventually, Kathy's body succumbed to a cruel illness, and Jim found himself without his life partner. After a time of grieving, he entered a wrong relationship, which could have been avoided.
In the aftermath of these tragedies, Shirley and Jim found in each other a refuge of restored joy and fulfillment. In Second Chance at Love: Navigating the Path to Remarriage, they share the challenges they faced after the deaths of their spouses and the lessons they learned that prepared them for remarriage. Both of them entered into relationships that moved too fast and ended in broken engagements. With vulnerability and grace, they expose the red flags that accompanied these relationships and the poor choices they each made that led to more heartbreak in the wake of their grief.
Out of their experiences and with a sincere heart of compassion, Shirley and Jim address the fear that there is no one else who will love and cherish you the way your late spouse did and/or the fear that you'll experience a failed marriage again. They identify multiple issues of consideration that are crucial to a new relationship, and they provide practical and revelatory self-assessment questionnaires to help you evaluate where you and your potential partner stand on the issues. Second Chance at Love: Navigating the Path to Remarriage is an invaluable tool that will help you move forward with confidence as you consider a future with another life mate.
