Dating after divorce or being widowed can
If it's been a while since you were last single, you may be wondering where you should go to meet potential dates, what you should wear, or how to handle issues when you have children.
Perhaps you share their concerns, as you're also wondering how you can reenter the dating world after divorce — and do so according to God's standards. Divorce is the death of the dreams you had when you committed yourself "for better or for worse." As a Christian, you can't simply separate from your spouse one day and hit the dating field the next.The unmarried (which is a general term) are those who are not married: those who were never married, and those who were divorced and never remarried. Widows are those who have been married but now do not have a husband because of death or divorce. For instance, in 2Samuel 14:5, as a woman addresses the king, she said, I am a WIDOW woman, AND MY HUSBAND IS DEAD (KJV).Like Jennifer, she needs some advice but is concerned about how she can make the transition into dating easy on her children. He'd like to date again, and some of his friends say he should start looking for a woman now — after all, he's getting divorced soon.But John knows better because he's still married, and dating now would go against God's desires.
