Dating your husband after separation
You CAN see people, of course, but use your best judgment. Again, once you've signed a separation agreement, it's less risky–but it's still adultery (and therefore still a misdemeanor in Virginia) until you've got that Final Decree of Divorce with the judge's signature on it. I would say, however, that if you would be angry with your husband for having his new girlfriend over while the children are there, then it would probably be a good idea if you didn't do it either.Before you've signed an agreement, it's a very bad idea. Until there is an order preventing you from doing something (like having unrelated overnight guests when the children are present), legally speaking you are allowed to do it. It's probably also not a bad idea to consider your children and where they are in the whole process.I know this is difficult to accept, but I believe the present trend of open dating immediately after separation must be deterred.Such activity encourages and contributes to the increasing divorce rate. Develop friends, but refuse romantic involvement until the fate of your marriage is determined.
This book deals with the question of dating while separated, how to relate to your children during this time, and ways to improve communication.
Assignments are given to encourage growth both as individuals and as a couple.
The ultimate value comes not in reading but in applying truth.
Whenever you start a new relationship before you've finished the old one, there's a risk.
That is especially true when your old relationship was a marriage.
