Dating after divorce for christian men
Every year my church hosted a singles retreat in Destin, Florida on Labor Day weekend.
Far from being commitment-shy, they were keen to find a good woman and get on with the business of building a healthy relationship.Choices based on the present but without enough regard on the past.These similarities make me think it is wise for women to ask four questions before dating a divorced man. Today as I listen to single women tell their stories about dating divorced men, I remember my experience well.I see them making choices about dating divorced men similar to ones I made.Plus another woman had already put in the work on their domestic training!
🙂 Of course, if I were considering a relationship with a divorcé, I’d need to know exactly why his marriage ended.
And what about all that emotional baggage that comes with a divorce – once bitten, twice shy? But over time, I had to repent of my prejudices and revise my assumptions.
Most of the divorcés I met actually had less baggage and fewer hang-ups than some of the ‘forever singles’!
How long that takes will vary, depending on the person and their circumstances.
However, based on my own journey of recovery after the painful ending of a long engagement, I’d be wary of anything less than a couple of years.
These chaps were often more confident, and knew exactly what they were looking for in a partner.
