Dating as a Divorced Parent: Difficulties in Making Dating Decisions and Balancing Dating and Parenting

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Although the complexity of post-divorce communication has garnered recent research attention (Ahrons, 2007; Afifi & Schrodt, 2003b; Baum, 2004; Graham, 2003), little is known about the process of dating after divorce. The process of dating as a divorcee can be especially problematic for individuals with children, as they must manage developing dating relationships while raising children and often staying in touch with their former spouses. These complexities create a seemingly unconventional approach when compared with traditional dating practices. In the current investigation, the researcher conducted 35 interviews with divorced coparents. Using Smith’s (1995) process of thematic analysis, the researcher uncovered that coparents struggle with balancing dating and parenting, and the difficulties they experienced in coping with divorce often affected their dating decisions and behaviors. Also, participants struggled in knowing what, if anything, they should reveal to their children and former spouses about their dating.
