Doewn to combination of about a years hassle from my ex and probably the realisation from my then new partner that the full relationship wasn't really what she wanted.
Hi All A relative of mine started dating a man who described himself as "separated". My relative went on holiday shortly after (arranged before she got involved with this man) and when she came back, she found that she was the number one item on the agenda for office gossip.
He's fantastic and we wouldn't be together if he only wanted a single / divorced girl!!
It can take a while for a divorce to come through so yes i fact when my boyfriend and i started seeing each other my divorce hadent actualy come through so i was technicaly still married but very much everyone files for divorce straight away when they split up for various reasons.
My sister and her ex have been split for over 7 years and they still arent actualy divorced though thats taking it to the extreme ha yes i have done twice, and i even got to speak to his wife as she had popped round to drop the children off and the second one I actually met the wife.
the 2nd was a friend of a friend who was in the navy, was very wary of getting into the relationship with him due to the ex.
he promised he wouldn't ever hurt me or the kids, took a while to introduce him to the kids, they got on great he was like a father figure to them, we went on holiday week before last when he was on his annual leave, i met his family,we discussed getting married, made plans for xmas and holiday next year, we took the kids to drayton manor last wednesday when the kids asked if they could call him daddy dave.left on the thursday went back to the house he shares with his wife who he had separated from didn't hear off him til the saturday then when he phoned me to tell me that we weren't compatable and the distance was a problem (he lived in portsmouth) .
Hi After a lot of serious and repetative issues that I won't go into (too, too much) I told my ex that I would be leaving once I had got somewhere sorted (again finacial issues) just over a month later she told me she was pregant.
I told her that I still wanted her to have the baby and offered to stay until baby was born but I wwould still be moving out, mistake, yes I know.Must admit, someone seperated would not have been in my consideration before, but as I found out, you really can't judge til you know all the reasons. If I were single i would want to be absolutely sure they were not still together and I would want them to have been separated for a while and know what the relationship with the ex is like.Glad I'm happily married as dating with kids sounds like a mine field!so no I wouldn't, I wouldn't even see someone who had a divorce I was separated for 4 years before I managed to get my divorce owing to my ex being pig headed.I met my 2nd husband a year after separating and dated throughout that time.He has been honest with you so be honest with him and air your concerns - good luck x no never again.....
