Dating during marital seperation dating stages 7 months
Frankly, I never saw it coming and I’m typically pretty perceptive about these things, for goodness sake.
I was going about my merry way thinking everything was , it was wasn’t.
Perhaps a spouse has been unfaithful or abusive, or maybe two people have simply drifted apart over time.
Without going into very personal details, he was pretty darn certain about this decision and only wanted any debate to be who was getting what and how to do it as quickly as possible so that we could go our ways.

When it becomes clear that the separation is going to last for some time or that the next likely step is divorce, a couple may enter into a “separation agreement,” which is a written agreement that spells out how the couple wants to handle certain issues during their separation, including child custody and support, alimony payments (if any), and the division of property.
Being separated, or entering into a separation agreement, does not mean that a couple is no longer married, is “legally separated,” or “divorced.” It just means the couple is currently separated.
