Problems dating single father

That's what was running through my head when I walked up the aisle almost 18 years ago, anxious, teary and excited to take the next step in my life with the woman I loved.Then we had one, two, three children and somehow bringing tiny little people into the mix didn't make our relationship any easier, didn't help us find a common ground and get along smoothly.

She does not need to have any reason whatsoever for refusing that responsibility.

Every time a single parent makes a date they have to find suitable, affordable childcare for their kids and this isn’t always easy.

Meeting for lunch when the kids are at school, or on the weekends if they go to stay with other family members, are sometimes better alternatives to traditional evening dates.

Every parent knows this, but you have to find out yourself anyway: having a child is hugely stressful on a relationship. We talked, we tried different approaches to parenting, we worked with counselors, we went to workshops and seminars.

But that fateful day came to pass where we just realized that, kids or no kids, we were really not making it as a couple and were both perpetually unhappy and resentful. Theoretically, to have a break from each other, but I could read the writing on the wall and started preparing myself for what ended up being a long, contentious divorce.
