6 months? Time to pump the breaks. Does that 6 months include the two months of online chatting?
It takes a good year to really know someone - six months? Thats the limerace phase when hormones and other chemicals flood our brain, clouding our judgement....
Ever hear the term "only fools rush in"? If you are planning to be together for all eternity -what is the RUSH?
So, what is he going to do about his ex and his children? Where are they going to go? Who is going to live where?
Some stats to ponder:
67% of all second marriages end in divorce. Add kids to the mix, half of all American children will witness the breakup of a parent's marriage. Of these children, close to half will also see the breakup of a parent's second marriage.
Unlike first marriages, where children are often a stablizer, the "glue" to keep a couple together:
Ironically, the presence of children in second and third marriages,if they are from previous marriages, can cause problems and lead to tension. Having to adjust to your spouse's children and his/her relationship with them is often difficult for couples. Inevitably rivalries and arguments arise, making this a constant area of conflict. In these cases the children can be a destabilizing factor in a second or third marriage.
Be sure that you have taken the time to really get to know him. That you two have what it takes to stand together, through thick and thin. That you approach conflicts like a TEAM - not as enemy.
many arguements caused him to pack his things and leave yesterday.
You have known each other for 6 months... this is the time you should be just SMITTEN with each other. A time when you should feel very compatible.
But instead communication is breaking down - and well, he is so "in love with you" that he packs his things and leaves? What are you going to do when ***** REALLY hits the fan.
My humble opinion, from what you have told us. This is not a relationship ready for a life long commitment of marriage. This is not a compatibility that is going to beat the odds and be the 33% that makes it.
Him packing his bags should have made that very clear.
