I am really worried about a close friend and would love any insight.
My friend (27 years old) filed for divorce 6 months ago immediately after her husband of about 1 year told her he cheated on her in a one time fling. She and her (now ex) husband dated for about 5 years before getting married. Less than 2 weeks after finding this out and telling him she wanted a divorce, she began dating a guy she knew just as an acquaintance previously. Things moved extremely quickly and they are now very serious about each other. They have been dating less than 6 months and are saying they want to be married by December of this year! I know of many couples with successful relationships who married quickly, but is this reasonable RIGHT after a divorce? I am worried she didn't give herself time to grieve and reevaluate what she really wants from her life.
**My biggest concern is that she has changed so many things in her life to fit into this guy's world and meet his expectations. She has changed her religion and political/social views, diet, and some other lifestyle choices to match his in just a matter of months. She has also become good friends w/all his friends, and is not spending much time with old friends.
I casually mentioned to her that I felt things were moving very quickly with him, and she said she was sick of people saying that and judging their relationship, so I said no more.
I've never personally experienced divorce, and I just don't know how to make sense of this situation or best support her. I feel that I should keep my mouth shut but I am really concerned about her recent changes and choices. I'd love to hear your thoughts and/or advice. TIA.
