I am dating a man going through a divorce
So, aside from being the “bigger man” in the situation, and in spite of any feelings your guy might have towards his ex, you have to be cool so she isn’t interfering with your relationship (and yes, even unknowingly being talked about behind her back is a form of inadvertently interfering in your relationship).The best advice I can give you when dating a divorced dad is to wait a while before meeting his kids.Perhaps his ex is trying to tell you who’s boss in HIS house, maybe she’s trying to talk badly about him, or butting into your relationship.
With people getting married younger (have you ever watched “16 and Pregnant”? This leads to plenty of good-looking, eligible men on the market who have a past. However, there’s often a stigma that comes with the word “divorce”.Now, I’m not saying to spare his feelings because he loved her once and blah blah blah…You’re not going to talk badly about his ex because you don’t want your relationship with him to be based on how much you both hate her!Even if this guy wants to be with you for the rest of his life, his kids might not be ready for it.
Also, if you and his children get along too well too fast, and then you and this guy break up, it will be devastating for the children (it’s their parents’ divorce all over again).You wouldn’t want him judging you based on your ex-boyfriend, would you? Divorced men usually have a different air about them than men who have never been married.
