5 Things to Know Before Dating a Divorced Man
Before you decide to start dating a divorced man, it is very important that you do your research well. Get in touch with people who might know things about him and get some vital information. We give you some of the things that you should know before dating a divorced man.
1. When did the divorce happen
Dating a divorced man is a big decision and you must not take it at the spur of the moment. Try to know how long has it been since he had the divorce. This will give you some idea about his relationship history with other women after he got divorced. Also, this will help you understand if you are a rebound or is he emotionally ready to date other women.
2. The reason for the divorce
Needless to say, it is important to have some idea about why the divorce actually happened. However, this information may not be so easy to get but it is important that you try. If it turns out that it was the guy’s character/behavior/misjudgment that led to the divorce, then think twice before dating him. It is important to know whether he has a history of domestic violence, and more.
3. The amount of emotional baggage
It would do you a world of good if you figure out the amount of emotional baggage the guy is carrying from his divorce. Things might get really tough for you if you date a guy who has still not come to terms with the divorce and is battling to get some emotional stability and closure.
