Dating man separated but not divorced
As a dating coach/expert, what do you think of the idea of dating someone who is still in the process of divorce?Do you advise your clients to take the date or run as quick as possible?You may learn that he still hopes to get back together one day.You may learn that a divorce will cost him a lot more money in alimony than he wants to pay.The trick is to know this and handle the situation properly.Don’t Be Dishonest Guys hate anything that will scare women away because they know it reduces their odds, and no guy likes reduced odds.
For example: She will get past the “separated” label IF you show her you have things under control and aren’t going to make her life miserable.
He wants a divorce from her and she’s a massive pain to him, but he just won’t take the steps to begin his divorce. I just want him to take the steps towards being legally separated from her.
Until recently, he was still paying her bills on top of his own (she refuses to get a job because she’s a “musician.”) She has custody of the kids and all he can talk about is getting custody of them, but I can’t get him to begin to take the steps he needs to go through to get to what he wants. -Caitlin Your question reminds me of one I got a year ago, in which a man wrote in that his girlfriend wanted him to get a divorce, but he wouldn’t because he was on his wife’s healthcare. He was clearly in love, but he was caught between a rock and a hard place, because getting married would cost him tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills.
Also, it seems that about 40% of the men who state they are divorced are actually still going through the process. That stated, I have come up to some heavy objection from both family and friends – hence I’m here.
They have given many examples of relationships that began quickly after a separation/break-up, so I am beginning to wonder if I am selling myself short – being too rigid.
From time to time I will check out Evan Marc Katz’s site to see what sort of dating-related questions he gets (and the resulting comments).
