Now, one might wonder whether you should even bother dating a man going through a divorce (or a woman, for that matter).
Isn’t it going to be a risky and super-messy affair?
Dear Duana, I’ve gotten involved with three women I met online in the last year, only to find they were all still married. It makes a lot of sense when you see it from their side.* People need love, or at least some contact.
I had asked each of them whether their divorce was final before meeting in person, and they all said yes! Many studies confirm that isolation doesn’t just make us miserable, it can literally make us ill.
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’!!!
Should I have one coffee date and see what I think? Eventually, we told them, and about 2 years later our divorce was final…..[He also] knew that it would take me time to re-enter the workforce after having been a stay at home mom to our children, and that after we were divorced I would have no health insurance…
) First off, why are many people so eager to date before they’re divorced—sometimes to the point of hiding their still-married status?
Since then he started to see a therapist (before he said he wouldn’t ever see one) to help him change for better. There is nothing that bothers me more than married people who go on dating sites. Some lie and say they are single, and then they begin a relationship with an innocent person who ends up falling in love and then finding out the person is married.So he stayed ‘married’ to me until I [could support myself]….That’s a long time to be legally married to someone that has clearly moved on (he moved in with his girlfriend after about a year).The best advice that you would get from your Raleigh divorce lawyer is simple—don’t do it.
Dating can have both personal and legal consequences that can be harmful to your divorce action.So, the question becomes, will he be this same person in 2 years from now? I truly understand that feeling unhappy and trapped in a marriage can lead to vulnerability and looking for happiness through cheating.
