Dating your ex wife

If you're thinking about breathing new life into a dead relationship, here are seven things you should consider first. People break up for all kinds of reasons -- everything from an affair to physical or emotional abuse to just not feeling like you have anything in common anymore.

There are no right and wrong reasons to breaking up.

In addition, with the continued connection between ex-spouses because of their children, some couples find they still do have feelings for each other after the turmoil from the separation subsides.

If the problems in your marriage are reversible, in that with work you can solve them, it's possible you can reconcile.

You are now dating my ex-wife, and her lawyer, my lawyer, and a state judge have all informed me in writing that you have a legal right to do so. I’m not a blackmailing pickpocket doubletalking divorce attorney, so I don’t know the technicalities.

The hardest thing about being in a relationship is probably trying to decide if you should end it. Whether you should give it another chance -- especially if you've already separated.

My first serious girlfriend post-split was everything my ex-wife was not. My therapist warned me that I was in the rebound room. And the proof is that you are dating your ex-wife's diametric opposite. We spoke of things near and far, deep and frivolous. It takes time for nostalgia's glow to loosen its grip on your heart, for fury's fire to fade into forgiveness. A solid eight months to a year before settling into a new relationship would have been more fair -- fair both to my raging, weeping, soaring, confused heart, and also to my new friend. Come to like yourself again, free of your former spouse's opinion.
