TIP 1: Make sure you are both aligned to what you want.
Your kids may feel a mixed bag of emotions about you dating and even harbor fantasies that you will reconcile with your ex-spouse.
If logic always governed, a lot people would probably prefer to go the single parent route after suffering through a crap marriage ending in a nasty divorce.
But for those divorced parents who opt to rejoin the ranks of adults searching for love and companionship, having a child can be an additional hurdle in an already delicate dance.
He already had two children already and even though in the first instance he said he wanted to have another with me, I knew that he had started to change his mind 3 months in as I could sense it and I ignored the signs as I didn't want to face the consequences of that outcome.
Instead, confront your situation head on (if you want kids with a divorced guy) especially if he has children already.
Ask yourself: Is my new partner a good fit for my family?
