Never go on a date with your spouse during separation out of guilt.Trying to let him down gently by dating will backfire. Dating during separation is not a time to sweep marital troubles under the rug.To be clear, I have met and dated several men who were married but separated.In my experience, though, there is a very big difference between a “married man” and a “currently separated man.”Though both types of men may be married officially, their intentions are very different. I’ve had time to reflect on what distinguishes the two types of men.My advice is to be very cautious about the situation and don’t jump in to anything too quickly.The most important thing, however, is whether or not there are children involved.Although it might make sense for a couple not contemplating divorce, a physical relationship with your wife when you know divorce is imminent will only cause emotional pain.Understand the legal ramifications of your actions.
(Or, more likely, they reached out to me and I unwittingly ignored them.)I never dated a married man who was looking for some on-the-sly side action.
While I don’t have to tell you that dating while separated is risky, it is ultimately your decision.
Technically, as far as the Court is concerned, you are still married by law.
Just as when you were first dating, you’re able to spend time with your partner in a neutral social setting.
Unlike when you were first going out, it’s important to define the way you date your spouse during a separation to avoid complications. Knowing where the other party stands upfront is the key to successfully dating your spouse.
