  • Well, you're still married. I would consider it wrong.

  • In my honest opinion, no it's not okay. I think you have not had time to get over your marriage and really you're married until you're divorced. But you will get all kinds of people saying it's just fine. You probably should check into your state's oipnion on this though. A friend of mine was dumb enough to do this and it nearly cost her a hell of a lot.

  • i'd call it cheating. not trying to be mean, but i think there's a difference between separated and divorced. and if you've just been through a nasty situation with your husband, you might not be emotionally stable enough to date, even if you feel like you are. take advantage of your separation to reflect on yourself, your marriage, and what you really want out of life. there will be time for dating later.

  • My mom is still married to my dad but they have been seperated for 19 years and her and her boyfriend have been together for 17years. I dont consider it cheating, because thats how I grew up.

  • If you're married, you're married, so its cheating
    If you're separated, you're still married, so its still cheating

  • I'm with the rest. Just because you aren't living as a married couple, you are still married. if you want to date, get a divorce.
