He says his marriage is long over. But would it be wise for you — a woman who is ultimately seeking a serious relationship — to throw caution to the wind and dive right in? Getting involved with a separated man usually comes with a host of issues and complications that spell drama, stress and heartache to a woman. The bottom line is that going through a divorce requires a lot of him — he must grieve, heal, hash through legalities, potentially adjust to single parenting and financial limitations, as well as rediscover a new sense of who he is today.

Dating a Man Who Is Separated but Not Yet Divorced? | Psychology Today
Post love quotes or your couple photos. As our lives are getting busier by the day, our relationships, too, are coming with an expiration date, if the rising number of divorces are anything to go by. Whether a relationship lasts forever, or fizzles out in a jiffy, we can never really stop looking for love and companionship. Having gone through an unsuccessful relationship, a recently divorced man is no different. Being human, he is bound to reach out for company, and you may possibly figure on his radar. Solely from the woman's point of view, is dating this man any different?
Should You Date a Separated Man?
Hi i am involved with a married but separated man for four yrs now, i really do love him and i sense he may love me too but sometimes i feel things just arent right, I mean every one can see how unhappy i am , because i always give him time and my patients when it comes to him divorcing her, he made promises like three yrs ago that he file for this and didnt and keeps telling he wants the monkey off the back but he doesnt seem to be doing this, and it makes me very insecure because he makes alot of excuses about she will want half of the marital property and i dont believe this one bit, i think deep down he still wants her, even though when i bring up divorce issues with him he gets defensive, and as well as my children who live with me at his home, my kids father cannot come near the house to pick up my kids but his wife can and can call the house, its like he is controlling with me but god forbid i have rules about his wife he gets angry. I think you already know what I'm going to say. Something is VERY wrong with this picture. You are totally giving all of your power away to this man. And another thing that I don't like is that your children are watching you do it.
I get so many emails asking me about whether to date someone who is separated, recently divorced, or even fresh out of a breakup that I wanted to tackle this tricky subject. It would be handy if we could avoid the vulnerability that comes with doing the due diligence and taking appropriate action where needed. I personally know people who have gotten together while one party was separated, and in one case the wife refused to sign so they had to wait for it to lapse and got married as soon as it did a few years later, and in the other instances where it worked out, there was no faffing about with the divorce, Future Faking etc.
