Maybe she's still digesting the news and examining her own reactions to it. It seems to me that it would be highly unfair for her to demand that she will only take seriously a man with absolutely no previous history of marriage --- that's a fair preference, but not really a fair absolute rule. She'd be truly foolish if she were to give up on a good relationship like the one she has with you, because of a prejudice. She's at least as likely, if not more so, to be hurt and even abandoned by a man who hasn't been married yet ( so she becomes the first woman he has dumped ) than by someone who has had a previous unhappy experience but has learned from it.
I disagree with cindy, as this demand has nothing whatsoever to do with having "high moral standards" --- it is not moral to assume that the man, for instance, must have been the guilty party in any previous relationship, or that there is something automatically immoral about getting divorced.
And it sounds as if you have, sensibly, carried much less "baggage" from your previous relationship, than your girlfriend has, baggage whose origins we don't know yet. I wonder if there were problems within her parents mariage, which have rendered her hypersensitive ?
