Dating a woman going through a divorce
I'm counseling a man right now who within weeks of finding out that his wife was cheating on him, separated and started dating.Within 60 days of separating, he was in a pretty serious new relationship.Q: I have been dating a married woman who is separated for about a month, but we both agree it feels like we have known or been dating for years. Things had been going really well until this last week and could feel her getting a bit distant.She has been separated for over a year, but her husband has been dragging the divorce out. I finally asked her about it last night and of course it was a bit late. She is still married and doesn't know if she get into a serious relationship with me because she still is. A: A a lot of people make is getting involved in new relationships while old ones are still unresolved.And if you thought dating a single, uncommitted man was tough, wait till you date a divorced person!And when you’re dating someone going through a divorce, then you’ve just given new meaning to the term, ‘it’s complicated’!!!He traveled a good deal, so we had dinners, our children, her, and I.
I thought maybe if I got a savvy woman’s perspective, it would be beneficial.
Believe me, he will likely react to the fact that you are dating by making your life hell during the divorce process.
He may seek revenge to compensate for the anger, hurt, and embarrassment that he feels you have caused him.
He may try to even the score by fighting about custody of the children or how to split the marital estate.
If you have children, then you also need to realize that it's in your best interest to try to keep a cordial relationship with your husband.
