Separated and sdating your spouse
When my friend approached him, he introduced her to this other woman as if it were the most natural thing in the world. Don’t Make His Seeing Someone Else More Than It Is: I know it’s very easy to assume that once your husband begins dating again, you have lost him for good.
But honestly, the wife in this situation didn’t yet know how serious the relationship was.
She didn’t even know if what the friend witnessed was a romantic date.
I definitely didn’t want one, but I agreed to it only because it was clear that it was either going to be a separation or divorce. All along, my husband has been very private about how he was living his life.We know of a couple who stayed legally separate but married for some 25 years. It would erode their joint fortune and diminish the money available to their children (they had two).(Indeed, they exist in that state to this day.) The woman, happily living in a townhouse in Miami, plays tennis during the day and spends evenings with her lover, another woman. In the man's case, getting a divorce would only make him available for remarriage, an idea he hardly relishes.The man, who enjoys the city life in a Manhattan penthouse, runs a successful business and has pursued a series of monogamous relationships that fell apart, one by one, when he refused to commit to marriage. This estranged couple had their relationship formalized in a Separation and Property Settlement Agreement drafted by their attorneys.For them, it was the best route to new and separate lives.
But when that marriage foundation begins to crumble, everything else will come down with it.
