Dating a legally separated woman
In fact, Kayla and Heald had only just separated on Dec.
1, 1984, two weeks before her and Moore’s serendipitous introduction.
The overall discrepancy is what prompted the to contact Moore’s campaign, a request his spokesman characterized as “really scraping the bottom of the barrel.” Moore’s campaign, however, has been eager to discredit his accusers based on alleged inconsistencies in marginal details of their accounts, down to the location of a dumpster at the Old Hickory House restaurant, outside of which a former waitress claims she was sexually assaulted by Moore.
The campaign and its close allies have also questioned whether there was a phone installed in the bedroom of one of his accusers; whether a yearbook signature that appears to belong to Moore was doctored; and whether a woman, who claims she was 14 years old when Moore initiated sexual contact with her, was capable of walking one mile to a location where he once picked her up.
Given all this information, Moore appears to have written a more favorable version of history in which he never dated a married woman before she was legally divorced.
Perhaps they’re ready for a new commitment, especially if the old one was broken long ago a’ la strangers under one roof.
Dan Dear Duana, I’m a single mom, and I’ve been set up with another single parent who is ‘not quite divorced’. Should I suggest he contact me when the divorce is final? He got an apartment, and still came ‘home’ after work for months to help put our two young children to bed as neither of us emotionally was ready to tell the kids.
Should I have one coffee date and see what I think? Eventually, we told them, and about 2 years later our divorce was final…..[He also] knew that it would take me time to re-enter the workforce after having been a stay at home mom to our children, and that after we were divorced I would have no health insurance…
“Regardless of when they met, Judge and Kayla did not date while she was still with her ex-husband or legally married,” campaign spokesman Brett Doster responded by email.
Moore claims in his 2005 book “So Help Me God” to have met Kayla at a church gathering the week before Christmas in 1984.
