When dating someone whos separated
His venting and rambling about something she did or said.
His bad mood after picking up his children from her place.
And you might think that means his divorce will be smooth, simple, and unemotional. You will have opinions about how things are or are not getting resolved at times – and that’s also understandable.
Still, I decided against my better judgment to give it a shot once more. Still, I continued to swipe until I finally saw someone who caught my eye. He messaged me the next day and we had a nice dialogue going. After days of exchanging numbers, he immediately asked me on a date for the very next evening.
I’ve recently met someone and we’ve fallen pretty hard for each other. Plus, she’s totally hung up on the fact that he said he was divorced on OKCupid. For reasons more pragmatic than principled, I am opposed to people dating before they are divorced.
We both have two kids in middle school: a girl and a boy. So, for all intents and purposes, it's like they're divorced, they just haven't done the paperwork. She says dating him is wrong because he’s still a married man. Dear In Love, I realize this happens all the time, but I think misrepresenting one’s marital status on a dating site raises legitimate questions about a person’s veracity. The bigger issue here is not that Ben said he was divorced on OKCupid, it’s that he is in fact still married.
With that being said, if a man is separated, he’s still married.
Sometimes in a marriage, couples find themselves with their backs against the wall.
I remember thinking sheesh, this guy wastes no time.
