Dating a man with kids and an ex
I have a friend who is in her forties, who told me that her parents got divorced in high school, and that she was really mean to her dad’s girlfriend (who is now his wife) for years.
You're getting ready for your big date that you’ve been planning for days. How do you realistically date a guy who puts his relationship with his kids before his relationship with you?
Countless studies by many researchers, relationship experts and other professionals have concluded that if you date a divorced man, you have less than 1% of maintaining a long term solid relationship.That means 99% of people who date divorced men never make it to the finish line and here’s why. That means, no matter how pretty, smart, intelligent and perfect you are, his children will always be first in his life, especially if they are under 18 years old.You will constantly battle to be the pride and centre of his universe.You can support your boyfriend by encouraging him to spend time with his son and letting his son express the hurt feelings he has over the loss of his parents' relationship.I am afraid that if this conversation does not take place, the son will always have a reason to not attend his father's wedding.
You’re panicking because there are too many unknowns. He seems to be all set the way thing are, so what makes you think there is anything in the script that is going to prompt him to get out? I (personally) would NEVER start dating a guy who was still living with his previous partner.
