Dating going through divorce
This can affect the outcome of your divorce as far as spousal support and the eventual property settlement goes.
Even if you have been separated from your husband for a while, dating during your divorce can be used to help prove marital misconduct during your marriage.
Any person who has frequent contact with your children can become part of a custody investigation.
If your boyfriend has past issues of domestic violence or charges of sexual misconduct (proven or not), it will have repercussions in your divorce.
You need to be especially careful if you have children from your marriage.
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.
Emotional reasons not to date during divorce When you are separated or going through a divorce, the attention that a boyfriend shows you can feel like a breath of fresh air and boost your self-esteem.
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.
