I was newly single and in my mid-twenties, and after weeks of being told that it was time to put myself back out there, I decided that there was no harm in using Tinder. His marriage was over, and it had been over for some time, even before the separation, he said. We shared shreds of information, the things that make us who we are. Me: living together with a long-term partner whom I loved but didn't see myself with in the future. That was my first mistake, especially since I hadn't been in the dating game since Tinder even existed. He also said his mind was made up and he'd moved on. We connected and spent a few hours sipping beer and chatting. Him: married, seperated from the woman he had been with for more than eight years, with whom he shared a son. He also loved making plans that he had no intention of following through on. Maybe it was the night that he texted me, "Home with the ex and baby tonight. It was the way I wondered if they were sharing a bed.

Consenting Adultery Most of us think of adultery laws as vestigial traces of a bygone era. Plenty of states -- Alabama, Arizona, Kansas, and New York among them -- still criminalize adultery, although enforcement tends to be lax and the crime is normally classified only as a misdemeanor.
Technically, adultery is defined as sexual contact between a married person and someone other than his or her spouse.
My friends are still (months later) telling me that I need to watch out and that I cannot possibly be the one for him since we met right out of the gate.
The thing is this: We are both in our early 30’s…I have never been married, he was married for 5 years, together for 10.
I have been with my BF for awhile now, but I have caught a lot of slack for it because of when we met.
Yes, I am the first person that he went out with after he became separated from the XW.
There are plenty of emotional reasons to steer clear of someone who is separated from their spouse, but not legally divorced yet.
They're not ready for a new relationship yet; they're using you to hurt their ex; they might get back together with their spouse; heck, they're probably still living together!
Dinged in the Divorce Not only could sleeping with a separated person affect your criminal record, it could affect the divorce as well.
