Single mum Dalljiet Kaur getting engaged just two years after ugly divorce?
Post her ugly divorce last year, television actor Dalljiet Kaur decided to take the reins of her life into her own hands. This began with a physical transformation and she lost close to a whopping 33 kilos in two years.
Kaur also changed her son's name from Shaarav to Jaydon. The 35-year-old actor also removed "Sh" from her son's name to let go of anything remotely close to her ex-husband Shaleen Bhanot's identity.
In addition, she was also trying to get back to the work she loved and keep the family of two afloat. All this, while fighting for her son's custody and an ugly divorce battle.
But through the struggle and trauma she underwent in the last two years, Kaur has came out stronger and happier.
"Life could not be better. I am happier and stronger now. My son, Jaydon is happy and healthy. When he smiles once, I smile ten times,” says the actor who was recently seen on the show Maa Shakti.
With more work in tow, the actor is now hoping to settle down again. And it looks like she has already started the process.
Dalljiet Kaur clears the air about her alleged engagement
The actor who reportedly met a Singapore-based television producer has been linked with him. In fact, rumours of an engagement are also doing the rounds.
But the single mum rubbishes the rumours and clarifies that she is still very much single.
“I have nothing to do with this person. I have not seen him since a year. I am absolutely single and happy," she told Bollywood Life. However, she did add that she was looking at and meeting suitors set up by her friends and family.
"I admit I am finally looking for a guy and hoping to find someone. Right now, I don’t have a prospective suitor," said the actor.
The actor who was fighting an ugly divorce battle took two years to settle into her new life. And experts suggest that it is the minimum time for separated single parents to ease their kids into their new lives.
Single parents must realise that remarriage has unique barriers
Delhi-based clinical pyshcologist Anuja Kapur says, "What parents don't realise is that while they may have problems with each other, the children often have good relationships with both parents - and they lose that when the family breaks up. Constant fighting between parents had less adverse effects than parental separation."
She lists the nine things that such separated single parents must keep in mind, if they want to take the plunge and get married again.
- Wait 2-3 years following divorce or the death of your spouse before seriously dating
- Date two years before deciding to marry; then date their children before the wedding
- Know how to or make a stepfamily
- Realise that the “honeymoon” comes at the end of the journey for remarried couples, not the beginning
- Think about the kids: Yours and Mine
- Manage and be sensitive to old loyalties
- Don’t expect your partner (new spouse) to feel the same about your children as you do
- Realise that remarriage has unique barriers
- Parent as a team; get your plan ready
"Let them know you still care about them and that they're not being replaced or forgotten. Invite them to express their thoughts and emotions, and be open to making changes in how you handle the transition," advises Kapur.
