Dating a divorced woman
You may assume she’s bitter about her divorce, but she may have developed a healthy perspective on relationships and marriage.You may assume she’s saddled with a bunch of unruly kids, but not all divorced women have kids, and those who do may have interesting children you’ll end up enjoying.After all, divorced people can come with certain challenges such as kids, ex-spouses and unresolved grief or anger about the divorce.However, divorce does have some positive aspects, and divorced women can be a good choice for dating.
If you aren’t sure about marriage or hate the idea of financing an expensive wedding, a divorced woman may be a good option.What I also notice is that I don’t seem to hear any/as many happy stories about people (like me) who were married 20-25 years, got divorced, and then found happiness/ marriage, etc again. I have always believed that 50’s is in fact, no-man’s land, whether you are single, married, divorced or widowed, the reason being that you aren’t really young anymore, but you aren’t old either. I am me and all I can do is live life to my potential. The thing that bothered me most about your email is this part: You write: “found happiness/marriage etc. It seems to me that lots of middle aged women get divorced and stay single. And, older men have interest but that isn’t really fair either. I would like to know your thoughts on the likelihood of 50 year old women finding a second life partner. It’s really funny that I would get this email from you, wondering about dating over 50. Because I’m turning 50 in 6 months, and I’m recently single again. I have had some issues while shopping for clothes in recent years, because all the clothing out there either seems too young or too old for me. again.” The slash between happiness and marriage clearly indicates that you equate happiness and marriage, and that’s something I definitely don’t do. I would ultimately like to be married again (I think) but anyone who reads this blog should know by now that I don’t feel marriage brings happiness unless you wait for the right person and/or the right time. Some people view divorce as a “failure.” But divorce can be an excellent learning experience.Unlike never-married women, a divorced woman knows something about what it takes to make a marriage work, and chances are she won’t repeat past mistakes.
