Relationship after separation

Legally, no. Not until absolute divorce is granted after one year, one day separation.
Realistically, if your ex is aware of a relationship and is not bitter, there are no children involved, there are no assets that could be in question or alimony involved, then it shouldn’t cause problems. If the ex is the type to start problems, there are children or alimony involved, then I would consider waiting the extra 5-6 months for divorce. Especially, where children are involved.

Thank you.

I would advise against it, adultery is a crime until the date that you are divorced.

Wife left 7 months ago. I still live in the house. Is it ok that someone moves in with me now?
