Of course, they'd have a lot more time if they didn't have kids.
Possessive when they're younger, resentful when they're older, kids aren't used to dealing with their parents' overt sexuality and they don't particularly want to deal with it -- especially in an era of FWBs, cougars and MILFs.

Dating as a single person is one thing; dating as a divorced person with kids is quite another thing.
