Since shooting Sharon Stone and saying "Consider that a divorce" seems needlessly violent, my advice to you is "Get your ass to Mars."

First relationship post divorce is essentially a place holder. It's a fling. It's a chance to test if you're ready to get into another one again. Generally speaking, hopping right into another relationship before you've had time to process why the last one failed is a bad idea. It's doomed to failure, or to be written off as temporary. The smart thing to do is let a partner know that you're divorcing, or post-divorce so that they're ready for you to react in all sorts of squirrelly ways as you get used to dating again.

An acquaintance of mine was in love and hooking up with a guy at work who was married with kids. She would always tell me, "But he's so unhappy with his wife! He always says that he's going to leave her!"

I just wanted to pat her on the head and say, "Oh you poor thing, you have literally just said what the 'other woman' has always said for 5,000 years."

/ long story short, he never left his wife and they eventually broke up

Plus he's still living with her because he can't afford to move out.

I bet the wife doesn't know that her husband is telling his girlfriend a divorce is imminent.

I bet he's been 'getting a divorce'...anytime now, real soon.

Talk to his wife and ask what you can do to speed the process up.

Chances are, just talking to her will get the whole thing moving!

Of course, this is the UK, where the rules are a little bit different. But depending on the state here, cohabitation terminates the divorce proceedings.

That said, LW doesn't have a chance for a long term deal. She needs to cut her losses.

It's a Sun "reader", so any intelligent answer isn't worth the effort.

My divorce took 3.5 years.  During that time, we lived in the same house because we couldn't afford to get a second place for one of us.  Different rooms, rarely saw each other, and both in a hurry to get it finalized and sell the damn thing.  Home sold 9 months after divorce was final.  Told my GFs during that time I was divorcing but still living At home.  Married the last one 2 years later.  Happy ending!

Perhaps she should have a threesome with the couple from the other letter?

^^^ That, and...

... if he cheated on his wife to sleep with you... he's going to probably do it again.

Awww. I remember the first time a woman complained to me about her "married boyfriend." And that tragically was not the last time. It was a whole thing with women I knew in my early 30s apparently.

I think Seinfeld did an episode on that. Some women are greatly interested in men who are married.

I took a good long time to get divorced.  I was trying for kids with my girlfriend before I finally got around to it.  No real reason for the delay either.  We're just both bad at paperwork.

But I wasn't living with my ex at the time, and had gotten the post-separation flings out of the way.  I'm pretty sure this is not that.

Of course they are; they want a man who will make a commitment.
