It will really open your eyes and prepare you for what you may find is not a situation that you can handle.
This book contains some useful information for someone in the unique (and often painful) position of dating a divorcing man. The authors focus primarily on how to take care of your relationship, and yourself, while your partner is getting divorced.
It is a process that requires time, self-awareness and hard work.
And there’s a strong chance your separated man has a long way to go.
This is a very good book if you are in a not so great situation.
One of the things I liked about the author is the honesty that ok, if you are dating a man who is not yet entangled from his previous relationship well guess what? You can 1) stay in the relationship 2) put the relationship on hold or 3) leave the relationship.
Had I read this last year I think it could have helped me understand more of where my boyfriend was coming from.The majority immediately scramble to salvage their marriages, citing family or finances, prepared to agree to anything to keep their world in tact.Often this is in reaction to the shock, and not being prepared.No matter how enlightened we are as a culture, it is still uncommon for men to be the primary caregivers, and women the financial provider.Despite the security and sense of identity traditional marriages provide, they enable men to neglect the particular areas of personal growth that separation and divorce forced them to face.
While your dating habits will most likely not hurt you legally, it could lead to a much messier and longer divorce.
