My stbx husband cheated on me during our marriage. We've been separated for almost three years. Several months ago I met a wonderful man who is the complete opposite of my husband. He asked me to marry him, and I said yes. When my stbx found out I was seeing someone, he filed for divorce. My fiance' has bought the ring, but I can't wear it, or tell anyone, because I'm technically still married.

I think if you've been separated for 3 years you shouldgo for it. I wouldn't feel bad at all about dating while you're separated. That's one of the reasons people separate before divorce. I know several couples who separated and dated other people and realized the grass wasn't greener on the other side and got back together.
Honestly you said yes so you are engaged. The question is really should you keep it a secret. I'm not a big fan of secrets. I think you should tell your kids your plans as far in advance as possible because having a step dad will be an adjustmentfor them. A long engagement will give your kids tome to get used to the idea and let you develop your relationship farther since you've only been dating a few months.

Laughing at myself here..it must be early..when I first read your post I glanced quickly through it and thought you had misspelled SIXTH..when what you really wrote was STBX for soon to be ex..whew..was fixing to tell you maybe marriage wasn't your forte. LOL. Anyway..if kids are involved tread very softly. Otherwise..three yrs is three years. Move forward not back.
