  • It would depend on the person. If the marriage is truly over and you are working on getting the divorce, I see no reason why you couldn't be on the market. It wouldn't be a great idea to jump into another serious relationship though. And honestly the time out of a relationship would probably be beneficial, but some people can't go for any length of time outside of a relationship.
    Can they do it, sure. Should they, just depends on their morality.

  • nope. was it you or him? either way its not right. you are still legally married and should wait. i think if i ever get a divorce i'd wait a while after before being with anyone.

  • you have your free agency to do whatever you want but it's not right if your religious at all. it's not a common or socially acceptable but now days everyone seems to be lessening their values and moral fiber. i don't think so.

  • Are you separated, living apart, and in the process of a divorce? Then I would say another relationship is okay although maybe not the smartest thing to jump into before the divorce is final and you've had some time to heal.

    If you're not separated, living apart, and in the process of a divorce then I would say you're still married and finishing one relationship before starting another is always the right thing to do.

  • Not okay in court. It would be considered as adultery.

  • No, you need to wait for the divorce to be finalized first.

  • Is it personal morals would say no but it depends on your own morals. If you can live with yourself and your actions that's your business. Everyone deserves happiness. Ultimately it's your choice..
