Divorced dating a divorced dad

That said, there are some people who date divorced dads who just don’t get it. Awhile ago, I wrote a blog post called Are Divorced Guys A Turnoff To women? In that post, I wrote this quote: “Who one woman gives up could be another woman’s love of her life.” A reader then commented about it: This might be impossible, especially if the couple had children, they are always ‘first, forever’. I got nothing (except dirty looks from ex/kids), they all have legal/blood ties together, so I didn’t want to move in with a family to pay 1/2 the mortgage to be an outsider, permanently. That doesn’t diminish our love for each other, it just is the natural order of the priorities of being a parent.

This means the woman is putting the divorced dad first, and he’s putting her second, or third. That is a given and needs to be accepted by anyone who chooses to date a divorced dad. Tough situation (for me, not them, they all have each other).

She will be at all the graduations, holidays, birthdays etc. There will also be less money for the new woman, as divorced dad is supporting his first family, insurance, cars, college, vacations, grandkids…. If you cannot accept that and you choose to stay in the relationship, then you will end up continually frustrated, bitter, angry and resentful, which isn’t healthy for you or for the relationship or the kids. What I want to ask her is, “Should the divorced dad stop supporting his kids so that he can give you money? Then, you can look forward to repeating all of that with grandkids- theirs (not mine) wry smile. If she wants kids, then why is she even with this guy? So, she’s feeling jealous that she isn’t a blood relative? Maybe she got dirty looks from the kids because of her greedy attitude. I don’t want anything from my boyfriend except for his love. What I see from both of these women is a sense of entitlement and it sort of makes me sick. And if you expect more—like money or for him to cut off ties with his ex, or for him to put you before the kids, then honestly, you are clueless and you need to get a grip.
