Dating a married but separated man
If the adultery occurs after the date of separation, it does not.
Under the terms of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, adultery is a criminal offense.
Some states, such as New Jersey, call this a divorce from bed and board.
However, spouses are still legally married when they separate by this method. Adultery requires that sexual contact exists between a married individual and someone other than his spouse.
In states that still recognize fault-based divorces, adultery has more of an impact.
When I told him recently that I doubt if he's actually separated, he seemed to be frankly hurt (not upset).First of all, there is no proof that he's actually living separated.I just have his word and that of his sister (which I weight high because we're friends).On the other hand, he is the cutest guy you can imagine.He really gives me a feeling of being someone special, not only by telling me but by the way he acts and cares about me.
