He may need to communicate with his ex because even if the divorce is final, they might have other things to work out like childcare, or questions and issues about the property they co-owned.
But knowing if they still communicate, and why, will help you manage your own expectations about your relationship with him.
It’s good to know what to expect, because the custody arrangement might affect how often you get to spend time with your partner, and how to pace the relationship.
Knowing whether your partner still shares property with his ex, or whether he needs to pay alimony, will help manage your expectations when it comes to his financial obligations.
Typically, when a divorce is final, it means that both parties have reached an agreement on custody and how to split up their mutual assets such as the house, investments, the pets, etc.
Sometimes, a couple might choose to divorce but still remain partners in an investment, or still co-own a property.
For example, if a fulfilling relationship, to you, means that your partner is both attentive and present with you when you’re on a date.But if you find when you’re actually on a date, your partner is clearly preoccupied with his recent divorce, then he might not be emotionally available right now.Relationship fallout takes time to heal, and how long that healing takes depends on each individual.When it comes to determining how much time is the “right amount of time” for someone to wait before they start dating after a separation or divorce, my advice is that if they ultimately want a happy, healthy relationship…They will set themselves up for better relationship success if they date when they’re on why they want to date. It really depends on what matters to you in a relationship.
