Dating someone who is getting divorced
Here are some of the pros and cons of dating a divorcee: Pros 1.Time – divorce is often the result of a relationship where people rushed in too quickly and didn’t really take sufficient time to get to know each other.It is possible to share a full and happy life with someone without a marriage certificate but if it is high on your list of priorities it is best to check whether this is ever a possibility. Emotional baggage – a bad divorce can leave people bitter, angry, resentful and with a skewed view of relationships.While their feelings may be entirely justified it may be impossible to break down the barriers and form a new relationship until they have worked through the issues.I took on the new responsibility of not only getting used to living with him, but also being introduced to his children.In addition, he doubled his commuting time, which added more stress to the plate.This can often result in them being much more open minded and adaptable themselves with a deeper understanding that every person’s situation is unique and not necessarily a reflection of their values or beliefs – a divorcee may still believe in the sanctity of marriage but their ex didn’t. Communication – good communication skills are at the heart of any lasting healthy relationship.
Be especially wary of someone who is only just going through divorce proceedings and still living in the marital home – the chances are you may be used as a stepping stone to freedom. Trust – although it is unfair to be judged because of someone else’s bad behaviour, when a person has been badly hurt they are going to be wary of trusting again.
I believe that if we had taken our time, that things wouldn't have fallen apart so quickly as they did.
