Is There A Right Time To Start Dating Again After A Break Up?
The break up of Today show host Karl Stefanovic and his wife of 21 years Cassandra Thorburn was in the news again this week after photos emerged of a Mexican holiday.
Stefanovic reportedly took a leave of absence from the Today show last week where his co-presenters said he was taking time off for ‘work and a holiday.’ Now photos have surfaced of the journalist and his new girlfriend Jasmine Yarbrough,33 kissing passionately in LA and holidaying in Mexico.
While Stefanovic, 42 spent the Easter break with his new flame in the US, his wife was photographed moving out of the Sydney home they once shared with their children.
By the looks of things, Thorburn was left in charge of clearing out the five-bedroom Lindfield family home which sold in November for $3.8 million following their split. The 45-year-old mum-of-three was photographed on Good Friday carrying bags, boxes, suitcases and clothes out of the home to the family car.
There’s been a lot of interest in Stefanovic’s conduct following his separation from Thorburn. Many are saying he’s being disrespectful to his former wife by moving on so quickly with the young fashion designer. The two met last year in December aboard a luxury yacht cruise in Sydney and sources say they have been smitten with each other ever since. The Brisbane born designer is based in LA and Stefanovic has made several trips there in the last few months to be with her.
With countless photos of Stefanovic and Yarbrough enjoying each other’s company it brings us to the question of ‘is it too soon for Karl to be parading around with his new girlfriend?’ Is he being disrespectful to his former wife and kids?
So far, photos of Thorburn show her going about her daily business- shopping and picking up the kids from school – while Stefanovic appears to be living it up with his new love and looks to be very much in the infatuated stage where nothing else matters but being with your partner. The two were even photographed leaving a McDonalds restaurant together giggling like two high school kids.
When Stefanovic’s brother Peter got married to Sylvia Jeffries recently Thorburn was notably absent from the proceedings as were their kids. Stefanovic naturally was present although his new girlfriend was reportedly not invited.
Of course we can’t pretend to know what’s going on behind closed doors and we can only speculate from what we see and hear but by all accounts it does seem like Thorburn was totally blindsided by the split and Stefanovic has by all accounts moved on with his life and doesn’t seem to be losing any sleep over it.
What do you think? Has Karl moved on too soon? Is there such a thing as the right time to start dating again? And if so, what is it?
