My girlfriend is just getting over a divorce
Visitor's Question from a 31-40 year old Male
my girlfriend is just coming out of a marriage! we love each other and it's been hard! the kids are having some problems with the transition as is she! she says she wants time to sort things out but she doesn't want to lose me! what should i do?
The best thing you can do is give her time, not pressure her, and be there for her to talk to. Divorcing is REALLY hard, it's having to admit that someone you swore to stay with through thick and thin is someone that you are now abandoning. Even if there was a good reason for divorcing, it still feels like you failed at something you swore to stay with forever.
Give her time to get over it and past the rebound stage. It can easily take months to get through all the emotions that come with being divorced. When she's really ready to move on, she'll let you know. If you've been there for her that whole time, and been her friend, she'll know you were meant for her.
