Over time, one of those became more serious, to the point where we have been dating for almost a year and are now essentially exclusive. I want to focus on my young kids and prefer to separate my “kid time,” which I love, from my adult “dating time,” which is also great.I envision that for the rest of my life there may be a series of girlfriends.Because I plan to be serially monogamous indefinitely, I need to figure this out now.How do I try out a new relationship while gently easing out of my old one, without crossing cheating boundaries and maligning my good name?May Allah help us all lead a righteous life based on Islam!First of all, it should be clear that marriage in Islam is a solemn contract for which the Shari`ah lays down rules and arrangements to guarantee its stability.The spouses should avoid fighting or divorce as much as possible.If they have difficulties and problems they should be patient and forbearing. Siddiqi, former president of the Islamic Society of North America, states: It is not right for husband and wife to break their relations for such a long time.
Once he or more than likely the wife makes a move towards separation - a new union begins.
He likes to talk about how he feels and how it's been so difficult for him.
He likes to talk about all the things his wife did to contaminate the relationship.
A man that has recently separated from his wife needs time to address the feelings of the marriage that has ended and where he goes on from there.
If there are kids involved, there is usually a discussion about how the wife is keeping him from him/her or how the wife was a not-so-great mother. It's just an excuse for the both of you to do what you are doing with each other without having to deal with the issues from that relationship.
