Child dating divorce
By Tracy Achen If you are thinking about dating during divorce ... You may think that you are free to start a new relationship once the decision is made to separate or divorce.
But it is wise to hold off on the dating scene until after your divorce is finalized for a number of strategic, legal, and emotional reasons.
You need time to discover that you can make it on your own without a man to support you emotionally or financially. When you are going through a divorce, you're usually not in a mental state to make permanent choices.
Even if you have been separated from your husband for a while, dating during your divorce can be used to help prove marital misconduct during your marriage.
While it feels good to be needed and wanted, it's unlikely that you're emotionally ready to deal with a new relationship.
You will still have to deal with all the issues that caused the breakup of your marriage and make peace with the fact that it's really over.
So what should you do if you believe that this new man is the one you should have married in the first place?
Make life easier on you and him both by postponing the relationship until the divorce is finalized.
