Question by imdpo: Divorced women Do you feel you are held to a higher standard?
If you have been divorced for a period of time do you ever feel like you are expected to be super human?
Like if a widow were in the same difficult situation people would fall over themselves to help her out, but because you are divorced you are just supposed to suck it up.
Do you ever feel like the men you are dating are just looking for a woman to take care of them?
Answer by Danny
I’m not divorced, my Mom will be soon though.
But when she became a widow in 1994 it’s like you said. People would trip over one another just to help her out. She got remarried in 1995 and she is getting divorced now, and it’s like people don’t even think that being divorced is a big deal, that she isn’t hurting inside, that she might actually need some help and someone to console her.
I can’t say about the men and dating thing yet, she hasn’t started to date yet, as the divorce hasn’t happened yet. Just the separation.
