I want to see if men and women differ on this.

My first thought would be no. I would feel like I was taking on extra baggage (children and a divorced husband). My second thought would have to be it depends on the situation and how much I might like this person.

so if he is divorced, sure i'd date him. if he has children...hmm...i'd have to think about it really hard. but most likely, no i wouldnt date him.
