Dating seperated man

Just because a man is over his ex doesn’t mean he’s ready to be in a committed relationship again.He could still be mourning the end of the marriage even though he’s dating.One was simply not emotionally ready to move on, while the other informed me after five months of dating that he was going to go back and give it another shot with his wife–only for them to end up divorced anyway. So, until a man was totally free and wasn’t involved with any other women that could claim him as her husband, I stayed away.

When I asked a mutual friend if Roslyn was dating, she informed me that although Roslyn had gone on a date or two here and there, she was just not ready. As a woman who has had the experience of dating two different men who were going through a divorce, I can unequivocally say that I’ll never date a married but separated man again.

First, should one consider dating separated persons or is it an experience fraught with danger? Second,if one meets a divorced person how long does it take for them to get over their failed marriage and be open to a new relationship?

For background, here in Louisiana, a person must be seperated for 6 months before the law will grant a divorce while 1 year if there are minor children.

This can take months, if not years, with lawyers are the only ones tying the two people together.

Dating someone in that circumstance might not be risky, but love is a risk no matter what.
