I'm here to tell you, I wasted 8 months of my life on this man. He had never felt so in love in his life, like we were meant to be. However, I was unhappy with the fact that I couldn't have anything to do with his children and when I brought the subject up, I never really got a reason on why. Suddenly I had this overwhelming, heart-wrenching feeling to go to that bar. I'd love to help women bust the sorry SOB's that think they can have their cake and eat it too like they're God's gift to women. NEVER EVER get involved with a man who has a "previously enjoyed" family. I bought a house so he could be "closer to his kids" and the second we did the ex wife got even more restrictive with the children.
I do believe that whole routine would be more fun that than which I’ve described above. He knows to say, “I’m not sure it does your figure justice,” in lieu of, “Eww!

I’ll take him, and I’ll work to be patient when his ex-wife makes her weekly call.
I was dating a divorced man with 3 children, he's 10 years older than I. But why wouldn't he want me included in ALL of his life, makes no sense. He started working a lot of overtime and started staying less nights with me. By this time it's been 6 hours, he can't still be there, right? Both unfortunate and fortunately, I pulled up at the same time I saw him and another woman walking out together. I couldn't be around the kids/family because he didn't really see us as a serious couple. The children were allowed to run wild at my house and that was perfectly acceptable to their father. I"m a mother too (was a single mom) and know that letting your kids rule the roost is no way to run a household.

There’s not a week that goes by that I don’t think either A) I’m thrilled he’s got that experience under his belt, or B) Why god, did I have to fall in love with a guy with an ex-wife? But beyond that, it’s just a device with which to torture yourself. If he dumped her, you think, “What’s to stop him from dumping me? You’re destined to wonder – however briefly – how much of him is still in love with her. And if you’re the one who winds up with him, it will fall upon you to help him cope. A man with a now-defunct marriage under his belt has learned a few things about himself, about what he has to work on, about what he can and cannot handle.
Two years ago, I met a gentleman I shall henceforth call James, because his name was, well, James. It lasted a full 10 hours (we’d met up for coffee at 3 p.m.

"Divorced men are no longer living in fantasy land,"Dr.
All this information came up over the course of our 10-hour date, and to some extent, the process of James discussing it was akin to someone waving a red flag in my face. The point of course is this: There are some serious pros to dating a divorced guy. The Cons: (I thought we’d get the negatives out of the way first. ” You’ll have to manage her continued pining, her continued pursuit. You will see him see old photos, you will see him cry or scream or fume or mourn. And – lest it bears mention – this is all as much fun as… A guy who’s lived with a woman for a significant period of time has a pretty good sense of what to say and when to say it. If you’re boyfriend’s divorced, you can be 99 percent sure he’s lived with someone else for a while and has a solid understanding of shared space as a result. A divorce is a horrible thing to be sure, but from what I’ve observed, it’s also pretty humbling.
