If the person opposite you has been in a previous relationship it is important to find out how involved they were and determine how comfortable you are with this.
Maybe they were just dating, perhaps they were married, and maybe they now have kids also to look after. Only you know what you’re comfortable with. Remember, full disclosure here. You must be honest with them also.
Think about the following…
- What if they had children together.
- What if it was parents evening at school or parents and children activity day.
- How should they interact with each other during the time they get to see their children.
- Should they be allowed to exchange jokes? Make each other laugh?
Talk about your true feelings and discuss boundaries NOW.
