I am dating a divorced man with kids
She has told me that she would rather be with me than him. And she’s struggling with how she can walk in and just destroy his world. It actually amuses me a bit to see such certainty and judgment from some of the commenters who have no idea about the details of my situation. Like Robert Browning’s “The Last Duchess,” the narrative reveals more about the speaker than the “duchess.” Your filters reveal your experiences and biases but have nothing to do with me and my situation. After she’s had a few transitional months to herself, I’ll join her there and our life together will officially begin. Her family is starting to accept the way things are. I’ve been essentially living with her for about 6 months. I totally realize that we went about things entirely the wrong way. However, this may be a case of “all’s well that ends well.” I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. I guess the reason I wrote this in the beginning , and the reason I’ve continued to update it, is that I know I’m not the only one to experience this. Reading some of the comments, I realize that we all have our own filters in place and may be incapable of being objective about any of it.
She has told me that she knows her real happiness can only be achieved with me. She knows her family (and his) will be devastated and very disappointed in her. A few weeks after this story was posted, we took a trip out of town for a week together. They haven’t completely come around but they are making motions in that direction. We have discussed our intention to marry, but we haven’t firmed up any plans. She has struggled with guilt over how things transpired.
To get some insight into what women go through on these dating websites, I pulled aside one of my family members who I knew had spent some time on these sites looking for her future spouse.Daily Devotionals from Charles Stanley delivered to your door for FREE!
