My brother got divorced one weekend & had a new girlfriend the next weekend. I don't think he is really over her & he has not worked on his issues with the failed relationship. I think he is just looking for a mom for the kids & is moving way to fast. I feel really bad for the kids & think they are the ones that will get hurt.

Everybody is different. I was with my husband for a total of 23 years(including dating). It was pretty much instantaneous for me- he was an abusive jerk and the day my divorce was final, I was ready to find someone who actually appreciates me. I didn't do it right then of course, but I'm just saying I didn't shed any tears over him.

Just getting through a divorce and my therapist says 6 months to be okay with the divorce itself and about 3 years to get over being bitter (since I was the one left/cheated on).

I have found that women can't be alone...they have to be in a relationship...men on the other hand can be perfectly fine w/o a gf...however after a time, men will desire the touch of a female and will most likely fall into another bad relationship just to get sex....Women need love and security, men need sex and respect....

This is one of the subjective things. It's vary from one person to another, depends on the things around and in them too. And I think you brother need a distraction. Give him some time to settle down. Then, try to talk to him~

Best Answer

That all depends upon the person. YOU... If you let it bother you then it will be a long time.<br />
If you don't let it bother you then you will be fine soon.<br />

Just tell yourself that you are better off with out the jerk and that it could be worse if you had stayed together!

I would offer that it depends on how much you loved the other person. The more you loved them, the longer it takes (if ever).

It can take months to years to get over a relationship.
