Dating a separated woman with a child
We've been divorced since 2005 and she took, with my consent (and an agreement in place for the kids to SKYPE, write and visit me in SA at least twice a year) the 2 kids (then aged 5 and 3yrs) to NZ that same year. Not helping or allowing me to be involved in the kids' live.Now they need passports/citizenship to travel to the US.Children from divorced /broken families don't always have good experiences of their childhood.
She gets on very well with his son and it's all worked out very well. "Make sure that any separated dad you date is actually ready for a relationship, because if he has doubts and doesn't think he should be dating, it will end in tears! It's a great resource where you can ask for advice on topics including Child Access, Maintenance, CAFCASS, Fathers Rights, Court, Behaviour or simply to have a chat with other dads. In every case there somehow a new woman is expected to take on some guys past kids.
One man on here seems intent on boasting his partner is 18years says it all.
So as an older bacon he's expecting her to go chasing him and his kids and put up with his unemployment. As a womb can she not find a man who has a bit more dignity and respect for woman kind!
If you want to make a success of a relationship, it’s worth thinking about whether you’re really ready to in effect take on another woman’s children, even if it’s probably going to be a part-time venture!
One thing you can be faced with when you start to date a recently-separated dad is their guilt.
