Me: Don’t date a married man.
Jenny: Words to live by.
Me: I mean, don’t date one who is married technically but is divorcing. Or, if you do, stick to your promise that you will not sleep with him until the divorce is final.
Jenny: Ah. The moral question.
Me: That, plus he will have a lot more incentive to finalize the divorce. And maybe give you some leverage over dealing with his parents.
Jenny: That makes sense. So will it ever be final?
Me: Yes! It is final. It only took four years? Is that right? Something like that. So now we can get married.
Jenny: He proposed?
Me: No, I guess not. But we have been talking about this for a few years and when he got the papers yesterday, we realized that we could set a date. I am calling for your availability.
