Yes, I knew that he was divorced and had two children, but just knowing that he did want kids was to overcome the first hurdle of dating him.

Having dated a divorced guy, I can speak from experience of what to do and the mistakes to avoid if you do decide to go down this path with a divorced guy, especially if they have kids.

Instead, confront your situation head on (if you want kids with a divorced guy) especially if he has children already.

From your description, I get the sense that he is not over his ex-wife because it appears that he still carriers a lot of emotional energy about to his former relationship.After two divorces, I’ve learned that fault rarely lies entirely with one party in a split.In his email, Bill said he suspected I would be skeptical of the way he characterized his ex-wife.But he then tried to win her back after the divorce and last slept with her within three months of meeting me. His children also have special needs and he comes from a really dysfunctional family. I would need to locate to his city, very far away in order for his kids to continue their education and keep their stability.He talks about her a whole lot and says she wants him back but he wants to move forward and sees me as the next chapter. He is a recovering porn addict and no longer uses drugs. We get on SO well, have the same faith and interests. He’s worried I might regret leaving everything for him.

When I would call him and tell him about a problem I was having, he would offer advice...
