How Long To Get Over A Divorce?

Anonymous “Jill” as been seeing a guy for some time, but the guy just finalized a divorce six months ago and is enduring a difficult custody process. The guy had already told Jill that he probably wouldn’t be able to treat her the way women deserve to be treated in a relationship, but Jill took it as him being overly cautious and wanting to take things slow. Turns out he was being extremely honest and now Jill is reconsidering the relationship. Turns out a lot of people have a similar experience, and the majority of feedback suggested that Jill move on and let this guy focus on himself. If she wants to stick it out she’ll need a ton of patience, and judging by her submission, she is running thin. One caller mentioned how there is a formula for how long it takes to get over an ex-wife, and it’s half the length of the relationship. Obviously your mileage may vary on that, but the point is it takes a long time to fully move on from someone to whom you’ve invested so much of your life.
