Divorce has become a part of our social fabric, says RSVP's relationship expert and psychologist, John Aiken. "I think the stigma has really dropped away with regards to divorce. There are more people getting divorced than ever, it's something that's commonplace in the media, with celebrities, and kids are growing up with divorce, they're coming from divorced families," he says.

And, according to The Age, there are a slew of reasons supporting the stance that divorced men make a good catch. These include everything from relationship experience to character building. However, the article points out, that individuals and their past relationships should be examined on a case-by-case basis. Have you ever dated someone who's been through a divorce?

    And once was enough! He wasn't over his ex. We had one date, and I was tempted to walk out.... he did nothing the whole night but bitch and moan about what a bitch she was, and when he finally stopped that, he picked an argument about anything I said (which was only answering questions he'd asked.) So, he was a big time loser imho, and I wouldn't care to repeat the situation.

    I would never date someone who trashes their ex b/c, once you become their ex, they will trash you, too.

    I wouldn't get involved with someone with the idea that I would eventually be their ex. I've been married for 18 years, and it seems to be going well.

    Oh, I'm sorry....I should have said that I agree with you first...I didn't mean that you would date just anybody. Anyone who trashes one ex non-stop like you described is likely to be a person with narcissistic tendicies. They trash the ex b/c there is "no way" anything is wrong with them, therefore, everything that was wrong with the relationship was b/c of the ex and not themselves. Congrats on your marriage; 18 yrs is a long time in this day and age.

    THanks. I didn't take offense.. it's hard to express tone of voice here.. I didn't even know, until I went out with the guy that he was divorced. I met him at a Catholic singles club (and in the Catholic church, single and divorced are NOT the same thing) It was a horrible date, but it does have it's humor in the retelling.

    Yes, twice was enough. Everything I did or said was compared to the ex. Both had been divorced over 2 yrs. prior, mistakenly thought they would be working through some of the problems.

    Just depends how far they are along, if you catch them too early you are babysitting, after about 3-5 years they are ok, after 5 they are great but at this point they are not looking for another wife. I married one and it has been wonderful.

    Yes many years ago and it was a lousy date, she spent more time bad talking her ex than getting to know one another. I knew she had baggage and thus adios lady too much drama.

    I've gone out with some that were great, but the last was 100% crazy and I'm so glad it's ended.
