I’m Separated from my Spouse. Can I Date?

One thing people want to know often is how soon can they start dating again after they have separated from their spouse.  Their main concern tends to be what constitutes adultery and when is it safe for them to get back out and start dating.

When you are separated from your spouse you are still legally married.  So, technically, any new relationship could potentially be viewed as an adulterous relationship and your spouse could pursue a divorce against you on the grounds of adultery.  So, to be absolutely safe and to be sure that you do not have to worry about an adultery defense, you should avoid any relationships until you are legally separated or divorced from your spouse.

As long as you are still married, I cannot recommend that you begin dating.  While you may not think you have a lot to lose or that your spouse may not have a lot to gain by filing for divorce on adultery grounds against you, it could turn into a huge hassle for you.

  1. my daughter-n-law doesn’t seem to be worried about this, she is even having my grandson’s birthday party (2) which is on july 3rd on july 4th this year and inviting her boyfriend and his mother and his sister and niece. My son and daugher-n-law have only been seperated since march this year and she thinks ok to have this other man around my grandson. Since neither party has retained legal counsel, she seems to think her actions are going to bring her no harm. I object to another man being around my grandson when his father cannot be. Is there no options?
