The old adage ‘marry in haste, repent at leisure’ sums it up.” While rebound relationships can be helpful in assuaging doubts about your ability to succeed in a relationship, it’s worthwhile to note that psychological and sociological studies have shown that intimate relationships that begin before a divorce is finalized rarely survive.So moving in with a new lover during the last stages of your divorce can lead to headaches.
“For most people, divorce is an extremely stressful process,” says Marsha Garrison, Secretary-General of the International Society of Family Law and member of the Journal of Law and Family Studies advisory board.
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.
Whenever you start a new relationship before you've finished the old one, there's a risk.
That is especially true when your old relationship was a marriage.
