I am dating a man going through a divorce
As I mulled this over in this strange bedroom, I was overwhelmed with confusion.
Here I was sharing a bed with a man about whom I knew so little, he didn't even know whether to offer me tea or coffee.
In the end, our Edwardian mansion block, gave us an excuse to get to know each other slowly.
An antiques restorer by trade, when the building's grand wooden staircase needed work, Steve was the obvious man for the job.
But as you're headed down the aisle — that's the court aisle — of divorce, there are some things it wouldn't hurt to know as you sever your formerly "forever" relationship.
My daughter was just turning 3 when her dad and I split, and no matter how often I googled toddlers and divorce, there wasn't a ton of information on how she might be affected by the experience.
I ended up pushing for her to try play therapy, and when my ex agreed, we had her attend for a while.
This led to several weeks of after-hours conversations at my kitchen table, discussing mahogany banisters.
Fervent conversations that were ostensibly about work but which were really thinly-disguised dates.
