Married With Children


So the new guy...we will call him MWC (Married With Children) is still married! OMG! Really?? He and I were texting back and forth, and he finally admitted to me that his divorce isn't final. According to his profile, he is divorced. According to his profile, he has two kids. All that I'm cool with....but...SEPARATED?? Nah, I don't think I can roll like that! At first, I thought I could be okay with casual hanging out and becoming friends. But when did it began to feel sordid? When he asked me to call him but block my number first...that's when! I asked him why I had to block my number, and he told me that his lawyer advised him to do so. Something just didn't feel right about it. I know it's best to be cautious when in the midst of a divorce, but why not wait until the divorce is complete before dating?

MWC told me he would text or call me when his kids were in bed, and then we could meet for a drink. It worked out well for both of us, because I could still watch my football game! I agreed even though I wasn't feeling right about it all. I think my gut was right, because he never did call or text. I'm pretty sure that MWC is still living with the family. Now I'm not saying they aren't getting a divorce, but I'm not so sure that they are too far into the process!

I think your gut is right... he's living with his wife and kids but fantasising about divorce.
Ew.

Ugh! Why, why, why! Leave it alone, babe. When it starts out with dishonesty that will continue. So much I could say but you already know all of it. I'm glad you found this out early in the game.

I thought I could be adult about the whole divorced with kids thing, I mean everyone deserves a second chance, right? But I don't know. This guys sounds sketchy.

MWC is:
a)an assclapper
b)a fucktard
c)shit for brains
d)all of the above
My answer is d and I hope yours is too! Keep awaaaay from the MWC!!!! And continue to go with that gut girl!!!!

I am no angel, or expert. But from what I've seen - those who are actually divorcing but are still technically married try to tell you right away so all the cards are on the table. As a married person, I'd guess from the number blocking that he's not so separated.

I am married to an atty. Phone calls can be used, even if blocked to show a pattern of calls. And if they're in that kind of stage - do you want her finding out who you are and dragging you into it?

I'd be worried. Not telling you to stay away, but if you see him, proceed with caution. Good luck.

No worries, people! I won't be going down that road. Actually, I haven't even heard from again! Guess he got busted or felt guilty!

I would guess he is married and not planning on a divorce, just an affair. Especially since if his kids are already in bed what's the harm in calling you? If I were you, I would put an end to it before you get hurt, because the hurt is inevitable. Better to be lonely and single than be lonely in a relationship.

its not fair of him, if he truly is going through a divorce, to get involved with someone while in the process and bring that drama into your life. steer clear of him. not to mention he sounds shady about even going through a divorce.
