In other words, what exactly is a separated man or divorced man?
What are they going through, and what should you be concerned about if you’re in a relationship with a man who might be in a given stage of divorce or separation?
One spouse must file a petition with the court and a judge decides issues of property, support and custody, much as he would in a divorce.
At the end of the litigation, the court issues a decree of legal separation.
I realize that we live in a society and times when adultery is common and widely accepted, but what are the legal ramifications of this kind of adultery?
A: The kind of behavior you described is not illegal under the law.
If a party has an extra-marital relationship prior to a divorce, that typically has no relevance to the divorce action (other than providing grounds for a divorce, which is unnecessary in New Jersey since the state permits divorce based on irreconcilable differences).And with that awareness you make yourself more available for long-term love with the right guy.Raising your awareness means being clear on the facts of your relationship.Dating might be adultery before a divorce is final -- but it might not be.The significance of committing adultery also varies from state to state.Some states, such as New Jersey, call this a divorce from bed and board.
