Dating after divorce with toddler
It can look like you have questionable morals, even if you were the perfect wife during your marriage.
If you date, your boyfriend may be open to scrutiny To top it off, a really vindictive husband might consider suing your boyfriend for alienation of affection.
This will put your boyfriend smack-dab in the middle of your divorce, which is a quick way to put a damper on your new relationship.
You need to be especially careful if you have children from your marriage.
While it feels good to be needed and wanted, it's unlikely that you're emotionally ready to deal with a new relationship.
You will still have to deal with all the issues that caused the breakup of your marriage and make peace with the fact that it's really over.
It would be a shame to forfeit your future support on a relationship that may not last.
The bottom line is that if you date during your divorce, you are giving your husband a big advantage. Wait until after the divorce is finalized before you start to date.
While he may serve as a distraction and help you avoid some of the pain of your divorce, you will eventually need to face those emotions.
Living with someone can impact the level of support ordered Another point that you should think about if you are considering living with your boyfriend is that it will affect the level of support you may eventually receive.
Even if you ultimately get custody of your children, child support levels may be lowered because you are living with someone and sharing the expenses.
Not only will both you and your husband's conduct be scrutinized during a custody case, but also so will be the conduct of your boyfriend.
If he has a shady background, it will be used against you.
