My wife and I have been seperated for about 3 months. After we had been seperated for about a month she had papers drawn up. I still haven’t went and signed them but right after she had them drawn up I found out that she started calling a guy and seeing him. Is this still adultrey? She thinks since she had signed seperation papers that it isn’t. Also I am going to sign the seperation papers, since she has had them drawn up we have had sex. Do I need to tell the lawyer this so that they can change the date on the papers?
