To introduce myself, I separated from my spouse of 7 years last fall. We have one child together who is 3, and we've been splitting custody very successfully. Our situation is that I was the one who wanted out of the marriage, but there is and has always been little arguing or strong emotions between us.
I'm now dating someone (and I know many people will say I'm jumping into this quickly - maybe so - I'm open to opinions). We clicked right from the start and I feel as though I'm dealing with a completely different relationship than I ever had with my spouse. So...I may well be jumping the gun by joining this message board (I'm not able to legally divorce for at least another 6 months) but, I'm hopeful about this relationship, we've discussed marriage, and if I do it again I am COMMITTED to making it work. So I'll do a little research now...
He has 2 kids, 4 & 6 who get along great with my daughter & I. His family is very supportive, as is mine. I think the exes will cause some strife, but I'm up to the challenge.
Anyway, that's me. I'm very interested in finding out how others deal with similar situations, and finding resources so I know what I'm doing this time around.
