Today as I listen to single women tell their stories about dating divorced men, I remember my experience well.
I see them making choices about dating divorced men similar to ones I made.
Your date might also have kept in contact with friends who knew both of them while they were together.
While it’s not always easy, try your best to be understanding and remember that there’s no need to feel threatened by his past.
Try not to let this bother you; everyone has memories which represent a different time of life.
It’s his job to work through any anger he might feel in order to do what’s best for his kids.
You don’t want to get caught in the middle should anything you say get back to his ex. See our related post below: Are you ready to date after your divorce?
So bear in mind that your date’s ex-wife will be in the picture while you are dating him.
They may need to speak often about their children and arrangements for care.
