There are two people in a marriage, and both of you have to be responsible for what didn’t work out and caused the demise of your partnership. Quite often one person moves on a lot faster after a divorce, which can enhance the feelings of loss even more. If you can both be compassionate and not rub your new life in each other’s face, this will greatly improve your interaction as a divorced couple.
It is so important to have some personal time for yourself. Your child also needs to have time away from mom and it is essential for him to see that your life doesn’t only revolve around him. (His future wife will thank you for this! Mama’s boys can be difficult to have a relationship with!) You want to always show love towards your son but also teach him how not to be too dependent solely on you.
Both of your girls will be leaving home within the next five years and living their own lives, so where will that leave you when they are gone? Do they think it is fair that you should have to live alone because they don’t want to see you with another man?
