Dating a man going through a divorce
Even those people who are completely clear and convinced they’re doing the right thing in ending the marriage can hit a very painful phase, particularly as the reality of the divorce hits them.They can feel such things as regret, fear, guilt (magnified 1,000 times if there are kids involved), a sense of failure, sadness, anger, jealousy over a new lover in their mate’s life, or more.NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART Dating a man while he goes through a divorce isn’t something just anyone could do.It’s one of the reasons that for years now, my advice to women has been: don’t date a man unless he’s been legally divorced a year, and until he’s already had one transitional relationship.
Sure, there are successful relationships out there that started off with one partner legally still in a marriage, but the odds are not greatly in favor of that outcome. It’s just that you’ve got your work cut out for you.
And, an important piece here, this advice today is based on the fact that you’ve done your work to know that this man fits your requirements and your vision.
