While were close in years lived, we were lifetimes apart in terms of wants and desires and expectations.

He had already experienced the comfort of a wife and a house and a routine while I was still looking for the excitement of a new relationship, void of necessities or boundaries or plans.

He will need to communicate with his wife about their children for many years to come.

To have a successful relationship, you must accept this. No matter whose fault the divorce is, some men may be gun-shy to start up a new serious relationship. Enjoy being together, but do not pressure him to become engaged or promise to marry you someday.

Some women choose to avoid this situation altogether, vowing to only date men who are free and clear.

However, sometimes the right man comes along and, even though he is still technically married, you wish to pursue a relationship with him.

Remind yourself that he will need to communicate with his wife for the sake of the children if they have children together.

If you are feeling jealous, share it in a way that does not make him feel like he has to choose between you and his children.

Be patient with him throughout the process and lend him an ear.While he is still legally married, though, it is important to be careful. It is likely that if anyone finds out you are dating, it will have a negative impact on his divorce proceedings, especially if there are children involved.This might mean that you go on dates in another town or do not go out to many public places.I was genuinely happy for him and the second chance they both found.I was genuinely excited for the son they shared, and his ability to wake up to mom and dad every morning.I am a better woman because I went through the experience of dating a man who was going through a divorce.
