When going through a separation, you face new and challenging issues on a day-to-day basis: how will you split child care? Where will you live? How will you manage the costs for lawyer fees? Who will your child spend the holidays with?

Yet once the dust has settled and you’ve adjusted to the emotional, financial, social and romantic changes that have happened, you may find that years down the line, moving on after a break up will bring about even more challenges.

Life events such as getting married and having children will have been challenging enough the first time around. However, when it comes to the point where you want to get re-married and have more children with your new partner, a whole new set of challenges can arise.

Given your history, these big events could have a direct affect on your ex-partner and the children you had together, your new partner, and on your own wellbeing.
