My ex had a girlfriend (she had nothing to do with breakup) and I dated. I know some people feel it's wrong to date when you are separated and not divorced. However, I decided that once my marriage was over emotionally, physically and spiritually, I didn't need a court-stamped document to tell me that I could get on with my life. If one or the other of you has no intention of remaining married, then to me the marriage is over and it's not cheating.
It is wise to hold off on the dating scene until after your divorce is final.
Emotions are raw, and seeing someone else can reignite anger and spark revenge.
In Virginia, you are married under the law until the divorce is final.
That means that where fault is recognized in a divorce case, dating while your divorce is pending could be considered proof of adultery.
Will dating while my divorce is pending be a problem?
