Dating a man who is separated from his wife
What you have to keep in mind is that separated is still married until the divorce is finalised and that means that there’s likely to be emotional as well as legal ties.It would be handy if we could avoid the vulnerability that comes with doing the due diligence and taking appropriate action where needed.Dating while separated is possible, but only if you’re 100% honest with yourself and your potential partner. Let yourself heal and get used to your own company before seeking out a new relationship.The older we get, the more inevitable it's going to be we date people who already have a marriage behind their belt.
Before you can move on to a new relationship, you need to let go of the old one. Just let it run its natural course and do plenty to nurture yourself as you move forward. On the other hand, if you’re finding reasons to let things drag on, it could be that you’re finding excuses to hold back. If you’re on the rebound, you’re more likely to make bad decisions or get into relationships for all the wrong reasons.
Same goes for someone who’s not over their divorce and has beliefs that affect their ability to be committed.
I personally know people who have gotten together while one party was separated, and in one case the wife refused to sign so they had to wait for it to lapse and got married as soon as it did a few years later, and in the other instances where it worked out, there was no faffing about with the divorce, Future Faking etc.
If you’ve typically been a Fallback option, it’s best to steer clear of these situations unless you’re absolutely certain that whatever contributed to your previous habits has now changed.
In the end, it’s about because a person can have gone through a number of dubious relationship experiences and then gone through a period of personal growth and their current and future behaviour reflects their healthier habits of thinking and behaviour.
This isn't necessarily a bad thing, in fact, it proves they were — and therefore likely still are — able to really commit to someone. And before you ask yourself, how will I know if he or she is ready? Now of course, not everyone going through a divorce is a lost cause — Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger even calls divorced men the best kept secret.
