Single man dating divorced woman
Although everyone knows the word “money” should have no place in the same sentence as love, the modern woman is savvy when it comes to her financial reality.
When you are older, established, and are pursuing romance with a financially settled man, the topic of divorce throws a wrench into the equation.

In the 1970s, television classic The Brady Bunch set forth a long-lasting, impractical, downright ridiculous expectation for blended families.
As the new woman, it’s important to maintain a cordial rapport with her to ensure the harmonious relationship of everyone involved–especially for the children.
Along with his ex-wife and children, a divorced man can deliver up baggage in the form of required alimony payments, child support payments, and perhaps other personal debt unrelated to the divorce.
If his family stayed in their original home, then he may have a mortgage–or two–and a number of other expenses that support his former family.
