Criminal conversation is a sexual relationship.

Dating involving sex is a crime called “adultery” in North Carolina and is thus illegal while married.

The only reliable manner to obtain complete and adequate legal advice is to consult with an attorney, fully explain your situation, and allow the attorney sufficient opportunity to research the applicable law and facts required to render an accurate opinion.

I understand that for the absolute divorce one must be separated for a time period of one year. After separating, if my spouse or I decide to date another person, what are the terms of that relationship one of us is allowed to pursue? Basically, after our separation, what process must we follow to see other people? If anyone can answer this it would be greatly appreciated. According to a post on page 6 or 7, we can date someone as long as there are no “criminal conversations”? What does all this mean?
