No matter how long the marriage wasn’t working, both parties need time alone. We all have emotional “stuff” from our upbringing, past relationships and unmet expectations. It should always be seen as a commitment, not an immediate convenience. Children are not “baggage.” If you should ever think, refer to or see them as such, you best not ever date a single parent. Don’t ever force a decision between their children and yourself.
Children from a broken home go through enough having to often choose between biological parents and they shouldn’t have to feel abandoned again because someone new comes into their parent’s life. God can bring good from anything, including a divorce—maybe a more Godly marriage in your case; however, proceed with caution.
