Dating a man who is legally separated
Another says “I see you’re separated…I’m looking for a serious relationship”.I also went on a date with a really cool girl and had a great time.Finally, in cases where children are involved, dating can have a potential impact on the court’s custody and visitation determination.Child custody and visitation is determined based on what is in the best interests of the child.
There’s no love there though, we’ve clearly moved on. I have my stuff together…own my own place, pursuing an MBA, good job, do the best for my kids, and I’m in a good place right now.
I’m not looking to rush back into a marriage, but I’m looking to date with an intent on finding a relationship.
It’s what feels right for me and I feel ready for it.
As strange as it may sound, adultery is a crime in Virginia and you can be charged with a misdemeanor for engaging in it (although actual criminal prosecution is extremely rare).
Adultery is one of the fault-based grounds for divorce, and it can act as a bar to spousal support if you are seeking it and your spouse can prove you committed adultery (unless you can show that a denial of support would constitute a “manifest injustice”).
