Dating after divorce in your 40s
I am in my mid-forties and I have been online dating off and on for about 2½ years and dating in general for 4 years.
I am a year and a half out of a relationship and in that time, I have found only one guy I was interested in but he did the vanishing act.
), there are thousands of other instances of cross-generational relationships that die a quick, painless death. Because he was born in the 80’s, right about the time that you were losing your virginity in college. This is a valid concern to men looking to have families, so let’s not overlook it. It just seems far more likely that a) he’s bragging to his friends that he might get to sleep with a woman 20 years older than himself, or b) you guys really might be compatible if only he were significantly older or you were significantly younger.

Laws still leave alimony rather skimpy, but child-custody now favors the mother instead of the mandatory custody by the husband’s family that prevailed before 1945. Historically, the divorce rate in the Meiji Era (1868-1912) was higher than the current figure, very probably because men could divorce wives easily, since the social status and human rights of women were regarded as light as a feather.
In this respect, maintaining the marital structure, even when the husband/wife relations are practically broken, is socially acceptable and often the rationale for not divorcing.
