Men dating during divorce
If you're thinking about dating before your divorce is final – DON'T!
You may think that you're 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. When you start seeing someone else, it is like rubbing salt into your husband's wounds.
While it feels good to be needed and wanted, it's unlikely that you're emotionally ready to deal with a new relationship.
Dating during your divorce can poison the spirit of cooperation and affect your life for a long time after the divorce is final (and possibly after your boyfriend is history).
This will put your boyfriend smack-dab in the middle of your divorce, which is a quick way to put a damper on your new relationship.
