Dating During Your Divorce

On Behalf of | Jan 11, 2022 | Divorce, Family Law, Firm News

As a general rule, it is usually best to hold off on dating until after your divorce is finalized. However, some divorces can drag on and, in some cases, those involved may be ready to move on before the process is finalized. If you choose to date during your divorce, we have some advice on how to navigate your foray back into the dating world.

How to Do it Right

There are some potential downsides to dating during a divorce. Most importantly, it can anger your former spouse, creating a more hostile divorce process. Your ex may refuse to cooperate or fight you on issues that may not have previously mattered just to get back at you. That said, some divorces can take a considerable amount of time, even years. If you are ready to find someone new, you may not want to put your love life on hold for that long.

Here are some tips on how to date during your divorce:

  • Ask yourself if you are emotionally ready: Everyone is different, so this is a very personal question and it is important to be honest with yourself. Make sure you process your feelings and properly grieve your marriage before moving on to a new relationship.
  • Go slow: Just because you are ready to date does not necessarily mean you have to dive into a serious relationship. Try not to rush into anything immediately and enjoy the dating experience.
  • Discuss any big moves with your lawyer: If you ultimately end up finding someone you want to get serious with, have a talk with your lawyer before moving in together. Cohabitating will have an impact on some of the aspects of your divorce, especially spousal support.

If you decide to date during your divorce, talk to your lawyer about it to make sure you understand any other potential risks you may face.
