Dating a divorced man with 3 kids


If you are lucky, he will have a warm, loving relationship with his children, and he will be a responsible parent.But in some cases, you may see signs that show a very different side of him that could be trouble.If you start dating prematurely, you could be hurting — rather than honoring — those you date.When Becky was invited to lunch by a man she met at a bookstore, she was excited.If your boyfriend has unrealistic expectations and often loses his temper with the kids, this is a sign he could become abusive.It's also a concern if you try to step in and he becomes angry with you.

You might learn that he is way behind on his child support and is making no effort to catch up.While the kids are in his care, she may call constantly or use the kids to spy on what's going on between the two of you.Unless he's willing to set some boundaries, your relationship is going to have a third wheel.Watch for signs that his ex uses the kids to manipulate him.If his ex expects him to drop what he is doing to rush over any time a crisis happens -- that's a red flag.If you see unexplained bruises or marks and suspect abuse, immediately file a report with your local law enforcement or child protective services.
