When your ex wife starts dating
This avoids your children feeling ‘guilty’ that they’re keeping a secret, or that they have to choose between their mum and dad.If you do have mutual friends, it would be a little cruel for your ex to find out that you’re dating again through someone else, especially as it might put their friendship in an awkward position.
Because my life is not only meaningless and sexless, it’s also bleak, I happen to live for little gifts from the universe such as this. Lena* the snarkiest of us all, wrote back right away. That’s Sarah’s *new* girlfriend.” I peered closer at the picture. A few years back, I had an ex date someone who was the exact ? Or was I just such a whacked-out mental-case that she had to go for my polar opposite in her next relationship because I traumatized her so deeply? But at least in that situation, you can put the relationship to bed.So once you’ve decided that you need to tell your ex that you’re dating again, you need to think about how you’re going to do it.As long as you are not being cruel, telling your ex as soon as you think that he, or a mutual friend, might see you and your new partner together is a good idea.If there is a paramour clause in the custody agreement (i.e.
no overnights with a romantic partner), she can try to take it to court to demand enforcement, but it can be hard for anything to actually happen except your SO maybe getting slapped with contempt of court.(This doesn't apply if you and he are married.) She *always* has the right to take him back to court and try to get a modification of the custody agreement; his relationship with you can be used as ammunition in such a case. Slaying his reputation with rumor and innuendo is always a possibility, though.
If there is no chance that your ex would find out, you can have a little longer before you need to say anything.
