Coping with dating a divorced man
While it’s natural to be curious, don’t be too pushy.
Whatever you want to know, wait until your man is comfortable enough to tell you about it.
If you happen to be dating a divorced guy with a bad experience in his earlier marriage, he may not consider marriage again, or approach it with plenty of hesitations. No matter how cliché it sounds, there is truth in “it takes two to tango.” The marriage may not have worked out because issues they both haven’t addressed or weren’t able to deal with.
Take a close look at your boyfriend and see just why his wife left him.

The important thing to focus on remains your relationship with your boyfriend, which should speak for itself in the end. Tread lightly in this department, because you consider both their well-being without overstepping any boundaries offending them and his ex-wife. When dating a divorced guy, you also have to think not only of his kids *if he has any* but also the idea of future kids with him. Some divorced guys with kids don’t want to have any more kids so you have to include this into the equation.
