I’ m recently divorced (2/18), but I asked for it in October 2017. I fell out of love with my husband almost 2 years before that. My girls are 15 1/2 and 20. I unexpectedly met someone a couple weeks after I asked my (ex)husband for the divorce. We instantly clicked. I initially told him I wanted to just get together for some fun and companionship. I wasn’t looking for a relationship right away. But, we get along so well and I feel like I’ve known him for years instead of months. My girls still haven’t met him. They say they aren’t ready. It’s the only thing that is putting a strain on my relationship. I want my girls to meet who I’ve been spending all of my time with and who’s been making me smile every day. What should I do and how to I encourage them to meet him?
I am in a somewhat similar situation. However, my son is only five. I don’t know when it’s going to be the right time to introduce my son to my guy, but he has hinted that he wants to meet him. Truthfully, my divorce isn’t finalized yet, and I sort of feel like it needs to be before I can even fathom them meeting… I know my son would be utterly confused, and his dad very mad. Any advice out there on how and when to introduce new mates to your children so all parties are ready would be appreciated!
