I would love to hear from anyone who has been through divorce, has kids and then found someone and built a life with them.
When did you think it right to consider including children (his and yours) and how soon did you move in together, if at all?
Did you relocate and if so, how far away from the father of your children did you go?

It's early days for me (a couple of months)and I'm not rushing anything but I've finally met the right man and we both have dependant children so have to go slowly and carefully. Time-frame wise I wouldn't consider doing anything until we'd known eachother around a year. Currently we live close to DD's dad and if I moved eventually we'd be around an hour away from him. Is that too far? I have a good relationship with ex and if he wanted to see her 2 out of 3 weekends that would be fine with me.

I've been through a divorce, have one child and have found someone new.

I let my child meet the new man after about 9mths or so, when it looked like he wasn't going anywhere. I introduced him as a friend who is a boy, not a boyfriend. Been together for 14mths now and she still hasn't found him at our house first thing in the morning yet. He doesn't have kids.

I have no plans to move in with him any time soon, though grin
