Dating after divorce with teenagers


Children may feel awkward spending time with an adult who is not a parent and experience loyalty conflicts between biological parents and new partners, according to licensed marriage and family therapist Jean Mc Bride.

Having open, age-appropriate conversations with children and teens about dating can give children a chance to voice any concerns they have about the new relationships.


Children may feel as though they are going to receive less attention from parents when they start dating.

Some children may have a positive response to having a new adult figure in their lives.
