If you’re my age (54), most of the women you’ll date are divorced.
That’s a fact of life.
But occasionally, I’ll go out with a woman who’s never been married. Frankly, I’m immediately wary.
Why has she never married? Is she afraid of commitment? Does she have deep psychological problems? Is she screwed up sexually?
It’s funny, when I was younger I tried to stay away from divorced women. I figured they had too much baggage from their failed marriage. Now, I worry that a never-married woman has an entirely different kind of baggage – and it may be worse.
So, here’s the question: Would you rather date a divorced woman or one who’s never been married?
Divorced people debate the question
The popular Huffington Post website recently asked me and three other writers – two women and one man – to discuss this issue in a video chat.
Here’s a link to the 25-minute session, moderated by a Huff Post staffer. I think the debate is interesting.
See what you think. Hint: All the panelists, including myself, think dating a divorced person has more pros than cons.
