In most cases, a divorce is a decision that comes after a lot of pain and heartache, and is usually one that is made after a good deal of thought.
A couple going through a divorce have likely exhausted all possibilities of making things work, and are breaking up a relationship that they once thought would last forever.
Even though his marriage was nearing its end and he was no longer love with his estranged wife, he would always love her.
Through the anger and disappointment and every bitter feeling in between, he would have a spot in his heart carved out specifically for her. And there wasn’t a single thing I could do or hopeful wish I could make, that could possibly erase her from his history.
We go into relationships with the best of intentions. But it can also be hurtful to the one who ends up being the transition person. I’m just suggesting that you understand their needs now may differ from their needs down the road.
I learned that I couldn’t possibly be the only woman he would love.
How can you combat your feelings of insecurity and work through this challenging time?
If you’re involved with someone who’s going through a divorce (or will be), you need to be ready for the roller coaster ride.
This means that the people involved are hurting on a very deep level, and are probably not in a position to think in a completely rational manner.
So when you’re dating someone going through a divorce, you might have to shoulder more than your usual share of keeping things sane and cheerful.
And if you thought dating a single, uncommitted man was tough, wait till you date a divorced person!
