Comment: Given that I am approaching middle age, I have noticed more and more women, in my dating pool, are divorced or separated. In the past, I would never date women who were separated nor women who were recently divorced-i.e. less than a year. However, I am rethinking my approach and would like comments from the readers of this blog and their experiences.
First, should one consider dating separated persons or is it an experience fraught with danger? Should you be dating if you are separated? Second,if one meets a divorced person how long does it take for them to get over their failed marriage and be open to a new relationship? For background, here in Louisiana, a person must be seperated for 6 months before the law will grant a divorce while 1 year if there are minor children.
