    Question I haven't taken...

    Hello,

    I'm reading some Princess Diana's story.
    (I didn't realize It's been 10 years since she passed away.)

    When she was asked if she would remarry, she said
    "I haven't taken such a long time to get out of one poor marriage
    in order to get into another one."

    I'm not sure what she meant.
    Did she mean she had already got out of her poor marrage long
    time ago and was ready to marry with the new guy?

    Thank you,
    Tara

    No, she means it took her a long time to get out of her bad marriage, and that she didn't spend all of that time (and energy and undergo all of that pain and drama) for the purpose of being able to marry someone else.
