Dating a Seperated Woman

You may date others, however, be verrrrrrry careful about this, and don’t sleep or stay overnight with anyone until after you have your divorce judgement in hand. If you knew the person socially prior to separation, then I’d even caution you about dating that person, much less sleeping with them as you expose them to liability via an AA/CC lawsuit.

Alienation of Affection and Criminal Conversation laws are alive and well in this state. If you wish to put an end to these kinds of lawsuits, contact your state representatives and tell them to pass Senate Bill 1503 (2007) … llID=s1503

Adultery is a crime in this state so if you have sex with someone who is married you could expose yourself to criminal charges for this. It could also impact her eligibility for alimony if she is looking to receive alimony from her spouse.

If a woman is seperated from her husband (leaving a part with intent to divorce). Is it ok for her to date someone else during the seperation? Thanks for the help.
