Dating during a divorce

They have given many examples of relationships that began quickly after a separation/break-up, so I am beginning to wonder if I am selling myself short – being too rigid.

As a dating coach/expert, what do you think of the idea of dating someone who is still in the process of divorce?

Although dating may not be legally "relevant", it is highly relevant from an emotional perspective.

When your marriage has been “over” for quite a while, it might be tempting to rush back out on the dating scene.

Wanting to move on with your life is perfectly normal.

There are, however, some important considerations when deciding whether to start dating while your divorce is in progress. Although it is rarely, if ever, prosecuted, adultery is still a crime in the State of Maryland, and is a misdemeanor punishable by a fine.

I am divorced and have been for two years and am of the opinion that there is too much other stuff going on in one’s life during a divorce to date, as well.

Also, it seems that about 40% of the men who state they are divorced are actually still going through the process. That stated, I have come up to some heavy objection from both family and friends – hence I’m here.
