Dating after divorce separation
That's probably why so many divorcing people have questions about sex and new relationships.
What choices you may make with respect to raising your children, for example, is definitely not our area of expertise.If you are divorced, your marriage is completely dissolved, so you are legally considered a single person.In fact, you may no longer be connected to your former spouse in any way.When it comes to meeting new people, it's a dangerous until you've signed a separation agreement (or until after your trial), because you don't want to do anything that would arouse suspicion.
Even if you aren't having sex, the appearance of impropriety on your part can cause mistrust on the other side, which can slow down your divorce.You CAN see people, of course, but use your best judgment. Again, once you've signed a separation agreement, it's less risky–but it's still adultery (and therefore still a misdemeanor in Virginia) until you've got that Final Decree of Divorce with the judge's signature on it. I would say, however, that if you would be angry with your husband for having his new girlfriend over while the children are there, then it would probably be a good idea if you didn't do it either.
