Dating divorce during
Divorce is one of life’s most stressful and painful experiences.
Regardless of whether someone is the petitioner or the respondent – the person who wants to end the action or the person who replies — the shocks and aftershocks can devastate a person’s sense of well-being.
One of the most common desires for people going through a divorce is to begin dating someone else, or to “rebound” so to speak.
While this desire is understandable, in many cases, it is unwise to enter into a new relationship before your divorce has been finalized.
Currently, I am using online dating to meet new prospects, though I choose not to date anyone who is going through divorce.
I am divorced and have been for two years and am of the opinion that there is too much other stuff going on in one’s life during a divorce to date, as well.
When someone ends a marriage, for many months thereafter, he or she goes through tremendous emotional, mental and psychological upheaval.Its terms set a precedent, and they can sometimes – but not always – carry over to the final order.If you begin dating someone during this time, and if the judge frowns on this, it can affect your final order.If your spouse has temporary physical custody of your kids, and if she's not dating anyone, the court might believe her home offers the children more stability.If you have temporary physical custody, the court might decide to change this arrangement in the final decree if the judge feels that your dating is detrimental to your kids. The provisions in your decree can be modified post-divorce if there's a change of circumstances.
