Rules for dating while married

When Jim and I started dating, our impulse like any other new couple was to spend as much time together as possible.

The innocent new friend can be deposed by the other side’s lawyer (that is, asked questions that are taken under oath and recorded by a stenographer or even videotaped) and subpoenaed to testify at trial.There is no distinction between platonic contacts and ones that are romantic or sexual, although from a practical standpoint, the romantic/sexual relationships are the ones that draw scrutiny and cause complications.The reason divorce lawyers counsel against dating while the divorce is pending, even if separated, is that it has the potential to increase both the cost and the stress of the divorce trial. Judges, however, rarely punish someone who begins dating – sexually or otherwise – once they have physically separated from their spouse.He would not want to alienate Allan, or confuse the children by acting in a “parent” capacity.So they think he’s great, and we all enjoy time together, and maybe someday they may ask further about my relationship with him.
