Ask Amy: Many-married man wonders how to date

Amy Dickinson, Tribune Content Agency on

Dear Amy: I am in my mid-50s and have been married four times.

I am a recovering alcoholic and drug addict.

I abused substances for 35 years.

I have been clean for three years now and my life today is beyond my wildest dreams.

I have repaired the relationships in my life with family and have built solid friendships today with people I have met in recovery and at work.

I attend church and am a completely new person.


My old life was dark and suicidal, but my new life is beautiful and positive.

I have done a lot of work on myself, with the help of therapy and AA.

I believe I am the best version of myself today, however I am concerned with people judging me by my past life.

How do I start dating and explain four divorces?
