You’ll definitely need to accept this man’s ex-wife, but that’s as much as you need to do.
There’s no point in digging up dirt about her or stalking her on Facebook.
My situation is a little different because I have kids with the guy who also has an ex wife and son. What stinks is that I can sit here and tell you to have trust etc. I'm hurt because I give him everything and I want him to be a part of my entire life, not just pieces. And yet, I regret loving him, loving the children, every day. I am dating a very recently divorced man with 3 kids who is 12 years older than me. He is so good to me, I couldn't ask for a better boyfriend when we're together. I know he wants a smooth transition for the kids, but I am left feeling lonely, sad and left out.
but i always have to compromise and be understanding that im not the only one in his life ... I also am in a relationship with a fella with 3 kids, I have 4 and can make it work, but he is having difficulty, he says they come first and me 2nd. Using this, I decided what to do about my relationship and have been very happy with my decision. I am dating a recently divorced man with 3 children. I have only been around them twice and both times things went well, but we've been dating now for 8 months and still I've only been around them twice. But, If he doesn't have that desire to include me in ALL of his life, have me go places with them (even once a month) then how do I know if this is actually going somwhere?
You’ll have to be able to accept the fact that his wife will always be part of his life.
The two may still be in contact, especially if kids are involved.
Even though he said he wanted kids, I could tell half way through our dating that things had changed, and I ignored the signs. It really helps that it's anonymous because I got comments from friends that they would not say to my face. He gets his children every other weekend and on those weekends, I don't see him nor am I invited to do things with them. Personally, I have found this website very helpful because it helped me easily get anonymous feedback from friends about my relationship. I'm head over heels, but recently I've wondered myself if I am getting what I need from this relationship.Just because a man is divorced doesn’t mean that you should rule him out completely. Dating a man who is going through a divorce or is newly divorced can be a tough challenge.However, there are some things you’ll want to know before dating a divorced man to ensure this is a journey you want to go on. Before getting into a serious commitment with a divorced man, be sure you know where the divorce really stands. In most relationships when you break up with someone, you can easily move them out of your lives.
