Dating a married but separated man
In this agreement, I encourage all my clients to also put an ultimatum, that the person they’re dating goes into counseling once a week for the next 52 weeks. Because you want to make sure this person is exploring the reasons for their divorce, the reasons that they are still legally married, the reasons why they haven’t pulled the trigger and make the divorce final.
So in essence you have several options if you’re dating someone who is still legally married.
You can make it a friends with benefits type of arrangement, were you both have the comfort of each other without any commitment whatsoever if that’s what you choose to do.
Or you can jump to the ultimatum, and see if they’re serious about following through with the words and actually ending their marriage that they’ve been separated from in the past. If you’re going to date someone who is still legally married, don’t be surprised when there’s constant chaos and drama in your relationship with this person.

Dating someone who is separated is a bad situation for both parties.( still married; just saying…) Now before anyone accuses me of picking on men, let me hasten to say that separated women can be just as “challenging” to date as separated men.In fact, I pity any man who dated me when I was separated; I was messed up, and didn’t even know it!If you’re going to complain, you haven’t accepted the truth that being in this arrangement is going to be filled with ups and downs, much more so than any other type of relationship you might ever experience in life.
