" Answer: The question of dating during the divorce process is difficult to answer for several reasons.For one thing, the concept of “dating” as we know it today is nowhere mentioned in the Bible.
That is, the innocent spouse has been abandoned by his/her unbelieving spouse or has been cheated on by an unrepentant adulterer.
In either case, the innocent spouse is mostly likely in a state of emotional turmoil and vulnerability.
The father had almost no income, but had inherited millions from his "distinguished" and wealthy Welsh family, while the mother worked hard at her job as a journalist.
After three years, the husband and wife set up a consultancy together and had planned to move to France - but the marriage turned sour in September 2012.
The second situation in which dating during the divorce process could occur is that of a person who divorces his/her spouse for non-biblical reasons.
A divorce in this case, in the words of God, is due to “hardness of heart” (Mark 10:1–12).In a written ruling, Mr Justice Mostyn said dating before divorce was a “fly in the ointment” for family court judges asked to decide how much money husbands should give wives following marriage break-ups.Both in their 40s, the couple concerned met in 1999 and lived together with an adopted child.Most people going through a divorce, even when it is not their fault and even when they have biblical reasons, are usually shattered by the circumstances and not in any frame of mind to be “dating.” People don’t usually make good decisions while “on the rebound.” For a still-hurting divorced person or someone in a painful divorce process to be dating is neither wise nor prudent.The abandoned spouse may indeed be lonely, but making clear-headed, godly relationship decisions in such a situation is difficult, if not impossible.Related Topics: Is remarriage after divorce always adultery?
