Dating a divorced woman with a child Isn't a bad thing. Yes, it is very painful and a very difficult experience for a woman to be separated by her partner, specially if she has a child. Dating someone with a child and who happened to be divorced isn't a big deal for you. If you really find each others interest and your relationship works out fine, then it is ok to date somebody that you think she's the one you will be with for the rest of your life. As long as you understand each other and you are able to support the childs needs and wants, thats the only thing a woman with a child would want you to do.
