I have to agree with you on this... The circumstances must always be taken into consideration. That's what I got after reading ReGain.

I think they say dating is okay during that first year but getting back into a committed relationship is probably not a good idea.


There's the key. Play, have fun and keep yourself occupied. Nothing too serious for a while even tho it feels right. I only waited 9 months between 1st and 2nd and it lasted 9 years. I waited a little over 10 years between 2nd and 3rd and we've been married almost 19 years, and we dated a little over 3 years before marriage.

I dunno. Does an over night or afternoon rendezvous count as a 'relationship'?
If so, then 10 minutes after finalization is probably long enough to wait.

Not saying you need to look for someone to hook up with but good people of the opposite sex can show you there's a much better life than where you've been.


I'll have to defer to your experience in the matter Slick. I'm coming up on my 32nd anniversary and I'd do it all over again.

TT we made 32 years in March. The first couple of tries didn't last a year combined.

Lessons are best learned when you don't sugarcoat a turd.

The best name caller I ever met was Virgil Bishop - That guy had some of the funniest lines I ever heard and I have heard lots. He was a wildcat coal miner back in my early days. Remember, when you are an agent of the Federal Civil Service, you cannot call names back, but At the end of the day, those names don't put you in the mood to be lenient.

Any clean enough for this forum? I worked at a Napa for about 4 years in college. Those guys had some good names for folks, but I can't remember any that are clean enough for anyone. Their humor was pretty low brow, but entertaining nonetheless.

After the divorce is final, no worries except for possible social stigma and gossip. If it is before the divorce is final, you had better consult your lawyer!

PS... If you are getting a divorce, turn off Facebook and stay away from all social media (except Cattletoday of course :P ).

I've always believed a person has to be able to live with themselves before they can live with someone else. If you're not happy with who you are, no one else can ever make you happy. And, it's no one's job to make you happy. that's your own responsibility.

Life is short - if you’re not hurting anyone else (like kids) do what makes you happy. That said I wouldn’t suggest a major commitment until you’re sure you’re ready (I’m guessing you’re not or you wouldn’t have to ask), but by all means if you want to see someone, do it.

This reminds me of the young "lady" who was big time pregnant and was talking to her mom. She asked her "mom how long after having the baby before I can have intercourse"??? Mom smiled and said "girl it all depends on whether or not the hospital puts you in a private or semi-private room".
