    Default meaning

    Hi, teacher:

    Could you please help me with the meanings of the following two bracketed clauses?


    You married this certain party when you were seventeen [and afterward there was just one racket between you after another.] You disvorced him. Then two years later you married him a second time. And now he's gone off again and you don't know where he it. It seems like those facts would show you one thing- you two are not suited to each other. [And that's aside from the more presonal side - the sort of man this certain party happens to be anyway.]

    Thanks a lot.

    racket = loud noise, so they were presumably shouting and arguing.
    They aren't suited and then, on top, the man (certain party) is of a dubious character.
