Dating my ex husband again
I will give you one exception here: If he has separated from his wife eons ago, the divorce is moving along at a decent pace, and the divorce just isn’t done… I had stopped all communication with him except between lawyers. Even if you manage to keep the relationship going for a long period of time, even post their divorce being final, you have now ended up with a boyfriend who has yet to deal with anything. It’s exciting and interesting to look at who is out there. That’s how you proceed as healthy as possible with the next phase of your life. Each situation is different but I’ll say at least six months.
I had taken (some) time to heal the best way one ever can and gain perspective first. But before you proceed, you’d better make sure that the end of the marriage is simply a signature away and nothing less. He needs time to address why his marriage ended, come to terms with his own culpability, help any children he has to come to terms with the end of his marriage, and to reconfigure his life. You may have been in a sad and lonely marriage and you are ready for your next step. And before you start dating, develop some boundaries for yourself.
When it comes to the destruction of a family, keeping things as simple as possible is essential.
Emotions are running high, there is so much raw pain, and untold confusion, trauma and turmoil going on.
I remember spending a rainy day by the window in our cozy apartment. We enjoyed looking at the dark grey clouds in companionable silence.
After spending minutes staring at the stormy sky, we spoke about our future and our dreams.

But for everyone else, seriously, it is imperative that we respect the institution of marriage. Most of us hope that our marriages will last forever. Simply put, dating married men is completely wrong.
Knowing that it’s ending is sad and traumatic – as it should be. As such, you need to allow their marriage to end before you hop in. And try to justify it all you want, a recently separated guy is still married. Almost the worst kind of married– the one in the middle of a HUGE relationship crisis.
How did I become this person who would allow herself to break someone’s heart so coldly? After watching the light go out from someone’s eyes when they realize what you’ve done, it’s pretty damn hard to do that again. When someone cheats, it’s impossible to forget how bad it made you feel, so you’ll continue to hold that grudge for the duration of your relationship, sometimes even longer.
The guy I cheated with never spoke to me again because he felt so bad for contributing to the ending of my marriage. If I could go back, I probably would have handled things differently. There are more civilized and respectful ways to end a relationship than by saying, “Oh, by the way, I had sex with someone else. Even if you’re a one-time offender, it’ll never be forgotten.
