He may need to communicate with his ex because even if the divorce is final, they might have other things to work out like childcare, or questions and issues about the property they co-owned.
But knowing if they still communicate, and why, will help you manage your own expectations about your relationship with him.
When it comes to determining how much time is the “right amount of time” for someone to wait before they start dating after a separation or divorce, my advice is that if they ultimately want a happy, healthy relationship…
They will set themselves up for better relationship success if they date when they’re on why they want to date. It really depends on what matters to you in a relationship.
Or if really bitter about the divorce, his unresolved feelings about the divorce might affect your relationship.
If he has kids, then you want to know what the arrangement is, so you can know what to expect when it comes to him providing childcare, and communication with the mother of his children.
But what can you do to balance your heart with your head?
Sometimes, a couple might choose to divorce but still remain partners in an investment, or still co-own a property.Divorces, like men, come in all shapes, sizes, and situations.Sometimes there are amicable divorces; sometimes there are epic divorces that last years and years with lots of “collateral damage.” But if you’re dating recreationally and not considering him as a long-term partner, then these questions might not matter as much, since you’re not concerned with long-term compatibility.A guy on the rebound doesn’t necessarily want to be with of having a girlfriend and being in a relationship.If you’ve decided that you still want to date him, as I mentioned earlier, go in very aware of the situation and with your expectations are in check.
Unless he owns a Major League Baseball team, or founded an internet search engine, his available funds probably took a big hit with the divorce’s legal fees and the ongoing alimony and child support.
