While it feels good to be needed and wanted, it's unlikely that you're emotionally ready to deal with a new relationship.

You will still have to deal with all the issues that caused the breakup of your marriage and make peace with the fact that it's really over.

You need time to discover that you can make it on your own without a man to support you emotionally or financially. When you are going through a divorce, you're usually not in a mental state to make permanent choices.

Even if your husband has carried on numerous affairs during your marriage, he will not think that you are justified in seeing someone new at this time.

All he will focus on is that he has been wronged and will want to seek justice anyway he can.

So what should you do if you believe that this new man is the one you should have married in the first place?

Believe me, he will likely react to the fact that you are dating by making your life hell during the divorce process.

He may seek revenge to compensate for the anger, hurt, and embarrassment that he feels you have caused him.
