If the divorce is a result of a heated moment, you may be able to salvage the marriage at some point.

Adding other people to the mix too quickly can hurt these chances and make it even more difficult to get back together. If dating is going to harm the legal process or proceedings of a divorce (especially with kids) then you might want to keep your interests reined in for just a little longer.

If you are dating during a divorce, make sure that you are honest with the people you are dating.

The first thing to ask yourself is whether you are dating as a form of rebounding or because you have an earnest interest in more relationships.

When you emerge from a marriage you can feel left out, lonely, fearful, and insecure about what your role as a single person in this world is.

There is nothing fun about the entire divorce process.

From start to finish, it can drain the energy and life out of two people and their extended family.

If children are involved, tell them from the get go so that they understand when you decline certain things in the relationship.

Also, realize that the rules have likely changed since you started dating.

For most couples who start out as an affair, the insecurity of the person cheating again (this time on you) is common.

The other thing is that jumping from one serious relationship to another, doesn’’t give you enough time to heal and experience growth as a person.

You will be taking the same troubles from your marriage into your new relationship.

The difference is that they will take on different shapes but the problems will be the same.

Kids do make dating during a divorce even more difficult.
