Dating during divorce separation
Let's start with the bad news: You're on the road to divorce.
But the good news is that romance, love and, yes, even marriage doesn't need to end with divorce.
When two parties separate, they are still legally married (and might be staying married for all types of reasons, including religious).
The consensus for most has been that you shouldn’t start dating during that time.
Nearly every state recognizes some form of no-fault divorce.And I have even helped many through the more peaceful and amicable process of divorce mediation, which can save everyone a great deal of time, stress and money. You also want to be able to devote your time and attention to your divorce, because the decisions you make during this time will affect you for years to come.In light of these experiences, here's my compassionate and informed advice if you're thinking about jumping back into the dating scene, and perhaps even if you hear wedding bells ringing in your near future: • If you've started your divorce process, honestly evaluate how your separation or divorce is going. Further, consider how your spouse may react when he or she finds out you're dating.When you file for a no-fault divorce—or divorce based on irretrievable breakdown—your spouse’s adultery won’t matter much.But if you’ve filed for a fault divorce based on adultery, your spouse's live-in boyfriend will certainly help prove your case.
