Well, Alexandra`s first husband - prince Joachim - was not the best of husbands as he retained many of his youthful habits i.e. frequent visits to pubs, drinking alcohol or contacts with women. If it was so it is understandable why alexandra decided to end their relationsip. if she wasn`t a priority in her usband`s eyes.... she didn`t want to be nr 2 or 3 or 4.
It seems this was a common misconception after their divorce, but it was then followed by reports from friends that Joachim had been acting that way because of Alexandra's extramarital affair with Martin Jørgensen, which had been going on for two years. See http://ekstrabladet.dk/flash/udlandkendte/article3223331.ece
It should be noted that Alexandra found her toyboy in the "royal entourage", as Martin Jørgensen is the son of a photographer / documentary producer who has worked closely with the royal family for years. As a photographer himself Martin met Alexandra when he worked together with his father making documentaries about the royal family and Alexandra, including her trips abroad.
I guess ( from my own experience) that once you have a healthy bond with you mom and dad divorces do not damage your psyche,
. Well, they do but not to the extent that most people think... It is not a disaster.
It's probably harder for royals than for us ordinary mortals, because they are always on display, are hounded by the press, have less emotional support from their busy and distant parents and grandparents and see their family quarrels sensationalized in the media and criticized by the public.
Plus it can't be that easy being the (rejected) stepsons of a father figure as problematic as Martin Jørgensen, who, as mentioned above, has always rejected the daughter he fathered 19 years ago and let a friend (who he fell out with) assume paternity of her.
The conclusion after her two marriages is probably that Alexandra is attracted to immature men who react to challenges in foolish ways.
