Advice dating someone going through divorce
He is likely to be on a roller coaster of emotions and needs someone to listen to him.
You may have to wait longer to meet his children, family and friends.
However, sometimes the right man comes along and, even though he is still technically married, you wish to pursue a relationship with him.
One way to tell your origin story is to say that your boyfriend wasn’t trustworthy and that you have evidence to support this: He didn’t initially tell you that he was separated rather than divorced; he kept in contact with his wife while you were dating; and he didn’t take the steps you asked him to take to move the divorce forward even though he said he would.This version of the story could play out in various ways, but most likely it will keep you locked in place.Even if you find your boyfriend to be completely trustworthy going forward, you might carry the pain of this early time into your future, along with the belief that his not pursuing his divorce in the way you wanted reflected some deficiency in his love for you and/or deficiency in his moral compass.Turtenwald studied editing and publishing at Wisconsin Lutheran College.Dear Therapist, My boyfriend did not tell me he was married for the first three months of our dating because he didn’t feel the timing was right for him.
