If you’re separated from your spouse and getting divorced, you may wonder how to go about dating again.
During this time, people may find someone else and wonder if it is okay to date while the divorce process is still going on.
They may have questions like: While the decision to date before your divorce is finalized may not directly impact the results of the case, it can be viewed negatively by the judge, especially if you have a divorce case that involves children.
It’s okay to say you aren’t ready to get serious, that you need to focus on your divorce or your kids, or that you’re still hurting over the divorce.
When you’re honest, instead of expecting you to give more than you’re able to, your dates can decide to accept your limitations or move on.
