Separated and dating
This book deals with the question of dating while separated, how to relate to your children during this time, and ways to improve communication.
It’s a practical book for both the separated husband and wife.
Being separated and not dating is one of the hardest temptations to resist.
After several years of counseling the separated, I am more convinced than ever that Britton Wood is right. But most of those who are dating will never be reconciled. Dating is a prelude to remarriage, not therapy for reconciliation. You are extremely vulnerable during these days of separation.
When you start dating someone else while you are separated, you make reconciliation more difficult. Unfortunately there are those of the opposite sex who would like to take advantage of your vulnerability.
Although pretending to be concerned about you, there are busy satisfying their own desires.
A more accurate term for 'separated' in most of these cases would really be 'separating,' since few of these people are actually through their divorces or have completely ended their previous relationships.
