Question failed both CS and CK, chance for match?

I don't want to find any excuse for these two fails. but they indeed happened during the period of my failing marriage.

I just want to get some sincere suggestions from you guys. I am a US citizen, I would like to become doctor here and take good use of my medical knowledge and training.

Do I still have a chance to get matched if pass CS and CK the second try?

please help and give me some suggestion. Great appreciated.

You need at least 12 month of USCE and 4 LOR and very good PS.

You can do this, if you wouldnt able to do it, they would say IMG can only pass it once. The system is their to make doctors.

Dont stress.
