Dating a man separated from his wife
Now, as a married woman myself, I can say with some degree of certainty that if my husband and I were to divorce, I wouldn’t want to rush right back into another serious relationship. All circumstance are different, so it’s hard to say if a person should date someone who is in the process of a divorce or not.
While most divorces can be sad, nasty and drawn out, others can be quick and painless.
If you know you're moving out of the area in 6 months and want to have some casual fun, then fine. While the warnings from DCUM are valid, you should use them to inform your decision, not instead of making your own decision. He'd been separated almost three years, had separation agreement, and child custody and support agreements in place, filed tax returns separately for two years. I was seperated with divorce papers filed when I met my now DH.
OP, he could be the greatest guy out there, but a mature person needs time to heal, learn what went wrong, including their part, and figure out who they are. Even between two amicable parties, divorce is gut wrenching.
My divorce did end up going through about 10 months after we started dating.Shutterstock A couple of days ago a friend and I were discussing another mutual friend–we’ll call her “Roslyn”–who was going through a divorce.Although the divorce hadn’t been finalized, her and her no ex-husband went their separate ways nearly two years ago.I am not saying that it's always a good relationship -- but they tend to jump in fast. If you know you're moving out of the area in 6 months and want to have some casual fun, then fine. The fact that I was only separated was a deal-breaker for some women. I started dating my DW before the divorce was finalized, and my being separated wasn't an issue for her.Stay cynical until he is really divorced, but separated men are not always bad men. If you're just dating and not looking for any commitment any time in the near future, then fine. She understood where I was emotionally regarding my previous marriage, and the I was sufficiently over that relationship to date her. This is a long way of saying it can work, and you should evaluate the guy based on his circumstances. I would have been more wary if he'd been separated less than a year or so.
For the life of me, I cannot understand why separated and divorced people are in such a hurry to date.
