Yes, that is a long time, especially for those who have been in an unhappy marriage for several years prior to the separation.Let’s consider the following issues to help you determine what may be the best choice for you.The ony way I ever see it works is if you and your spouse have openly discussed it's acceptable to date other people during the time of separation. It creates a lot of problems, a lot of drama, confusion, and while going through a separation it's bad news. Your head is still dealing with the fall out of one of the most improtant relationships in your life. As far as going w/ the separated spouse--have at it. I started casually dating someone about a month after separating...We are both in similar situations in terms of exiting relationships, and were looking for someone to hang out with.
Please feel free to chime in with your opinion 'cause I sure as h*ll don't know what lays ahead for me. I left to live my life now, not to continue to answer to her and feel guilty about anything.
For example, I have an Uncle and Aunt who are seperated but both knowingly date and have relationships with other people. From what I know, they were married because one was going to be seperated from one another when they met in the military.
They are completely fine with this arrangement (though the kids aren't too happy about it) and are the best of friends but the marriage didn't work out. Now the military expects someone to stay at least another year or so before getting a devorce.
Required context, that couldn’t perceive sex through the dating app, grindr, after an account is closed.
That's story i just wanted let you know that i’ve been looking forward separated to some peace and order to this person.
