Yes, you could create a legal liability if you decide to date and have sex with a woman that is separated, so you must be careful. Whatever a spouse does after the date of separation but before the divorce is granted can be used to corroborate events that happened during the marriage. You would not want her husband to accuse you of having a relationship with his wife during the marriage (before the date of separation), which could lead to an alienation of affection lawsuit against you.
