(This comes from researching the words, Legal Separation on the Internet) And, by the way, having a relationship with someone while legally separated is a Legal Separation which means that a divorce may or may not happen.

So, if you get involved with someone going thru this and they decide they want to return to their spouse......bye, bye to you!! You should be asking these questions and he should be answering you.

dating someone legally separated-65

While a legal separation is not the same as divorce, many people choose to date during this time, if they are sure a divorce from their spouse is inevitable.

However, there are a few things to consider when it comes to dating during separation, depending on the laws of the state, and whether the couple has children.

If a woman who is going through a separation/divorce begins dating another man, her soon-to-be ex-husband can use this information to argue that she is an unfit mother for their children.

This may prompt the judge to grant the ex-husband child custody.

I'm not even sure what currently seperated really entails (or in a legal context) with regards to marriage.. Honestly, I know very little about how divorce works. I can see the ex coming after me with a knife or gun. Additionally, I haven't asked him any details about the divorce, I told him he can always talk to me about it when he is ready. (I start work at 9am so I will reply around 5 or 6pm.) Depends.

They aren't dating because they are truly available and have finished their old business, but because they want to kick back and sow their wild oats. Or, he may realize he doesn't want to give up his home and go back to his wife.

The further along you get in the divorce process, the better the chances are that it will go through.

Right now all he has to do to go back is return home.

Also, be aware that getting involved with someone in this situation can be dangerous.........like getting involved with someone going thru a divorce can be.

Jealousy can put it's ugly face into these situations. I'm not even sure what currently separated really entails (or in a legal context) with regards to marriage/divorce..

Has he filed for divorce? do you know if they are going to get back together?

You remain legally married while choosing to live separate lives.
