I am dating a good Catholic man who is divorced and has a son.I am a Christian who is becoming Catholic (I’m in RCIA) who was also married before and have a daughter.
This is the right thing to do, and it will make God happy and He will bless you accordingly.
We were friends through his divorce and starting dating after his divorce was finalized. I love him, but have apprehensions about my ability to deal with this kind of drama. It probably would not surprise you to know that there are many Catholics in similar situations.
I have believed God brought him into my life, but I am starting to wonder if God has something else in mind. Divorce is an ugly thing, no matter what angle it is approached.
This would be the most important and objective aspect of your situation that I hope will give you clarity and also rest your mind, because it is a very liberating reality.
Your boyfriend is still married in the eyes of God. And probably (assuming you were married to a non-Catholic Christian and not a Catholic) your marriage was also sacramental, according to Church teaching.
