Title: Marrying a Divorced Man
Hi, I'm trying to find a book about dating a divorced person. I have
never been married and am currently in a relationship with a divorced
man and he is the first divorced person I've ever dated. He and his
ex-wife do not have children together, but they are still in contact as
she is having some serious financial problems as well as emotional
difficulties and he is helping her. It is an awkward situation for me
and I find myself needing some advice as to how to deal with this. I've
done several searches but was not able to find any books about dating a
divorced person. Any ideas?
I get asked for that book a lot but haven't found one.
A book that will help you understand what divorced people act like and how to
try and stop divorces or at least make them not as damaging is DIVORCE
by weiner-davis----I urge you to read this..very helpful book
Also there is an organization in California for 2nd wives:
2nd Wives organize:
I suggest you write Lou Ann and see if she has some recommendations for you.
The organization has some focus for 2nd wives of men with children but may be
Bossan, Lou Ann
2547 Nogeiga St., #333
San Francisco, Ca 94122
Being that I remarried a woman that was not married before, I can tell you
2nd wives indeed have some special items to work with. Your husband, like I
have done, will go through a lot of pain at various times even after he is over
the relationship loss. A restaurant, a town, a song, a movie, will trigger
memories for him. You wouldn't want him to be so cold that he could just do
away with his earlier life but indeed life is cluttered sometimes.
Let me know how it goes. Good luck in your new marriage.
