Get Back With Your Ex - Can You Reconcile After Divorce?

The Fresh Start Divorce Recovery Workbook: A Step-by-Step Program for Those Who Are Divorced or SeparatedIf you have divorced recently and are in the strange predicament of wanting to get back with your ex husband or wife then there are some steps that you will need to take that can ensure a better success rate for you. This isn't the most common of situations, but that should not be a discouraging factor to you. Many times when a couple divorces they are happy to finish the relationship there and move on to new partners and experiences. However, every once in a while I get a unique reconciliation request come to me.

I always tell the partner that is wanting to reunite with the ex husband or wife that they must get to the absolute bottom of why it is they want to reunite. By trying to reconcile a second time you are placing your relationship in a very stressful situation if your intentions aren't true. This is especially true if there are children involved. Children who live through a separation and consequent divorce can have a difficult emotional time. Children living through the same thing twice with each parent can be extremely devastating to the child. You will need to be absolutely certain that you are putting your real reasons forward and that they are true.

If the divorce was only recent then you still need to put some space between you and your ex. If you are going to reunite then the biggest amount of space wont change anything for you both. You need to let the dust settle and work through your emotions and needs and allow your ex to do the same. Getting back together before you have each had a chance of doing that can end in separation once more and that is a place you don't like now, let alone have to endure once more?

This sort of relationship reconciliation is a difficult one that needs to be taken with caution. If you blow the second chance you can be certain that there will never be a third chance offered. Should there be children from the relationship you must keep their minds and hearts at the forefront at all times. Not doing so can cause damage to your credibility as a parent as well as a partner. You should take a look at the guide in the links I have offered below and follow them carefully so that you can reunite the first time in the strongest of possible manners.
