Separated and dating with kids
That is to say, you are a mature woman and you want to date, so I think you need to talk to your son and tell him that you are going to start dating again. But there is more to love than hair color, and I think people pick who they love on other criteria.And it's easy to grow apart because you're not sharing day-to-day life.Sadly, our son was born with a disability and she therefore hasn't worked since he was born.She receives approx £500 per month carer's allowance plus other usual benefits.That said, I know people who had HUGE distances between them and survived that and ended up committed and together.So it's not easy, but if it's really important to both of you, and both of you work at it, it can have a good outcome.What advice would you give me as far as first date suggestions? And if waiting is important to you, I assure you there are people out there who feel the same.Should my courtship techniques be the same as when I was in my 20s? Question from Randi: What do you think about long-distance relationships? They take a lot of attention, by e-mail, by phone, sacrificing money because the cost can become difficult.
If you have good rapport with your child, have regular talks with them and they respect you, then it is important that you get their approval.Obviously, I have no issues whatsoever with regard to maintenance for my child, and am more than happy to pay this and still want to be a part of his life. I am sorry to hear that your wife has decided that your marriage is over.I note what you say about the fact that the property (which lawyers call the FMH or Former Matrimonial Home) is and always has been in your sole name.Each situation will require certain steps but for most couples this is a time for patience, practical planning and doing the following: (1) Ask God to help you keep your primary focus on Him and His will for you. Over time they'll come back and the hurt will be recycled.In a certain sense, the marriage--whether valid or not, salvageable or not--is secondary to your love for and faithfulness to God. Remember: If there's infidelity, addiction or other sinful behavior going on, refuse to let it back into your life and home. It means get help and let your intellect lead, not your emotions (fear, guilt, regret, etc.) (4) .
