  • No because if his marriage was really over then he would be divorced.

  • just pointing out you can have a common law marriage just by living with someone for that long. . . just because he is married doesn't mean anything. . . they are separated for 10 years. . . ask to talk to the lady and get her consent to date him if it is that big of a deal

  • My DH was married for the first 4 years we were dating. Him and his ex were separated but could never afford the divorce AND he has two other kids with her. So it was rough.

  • Sounds to me like you should be asking yourself why you would want to date a man that's been separated for 10 yrs...... Why not go for someone that's not attached in any way, and then you have no worries,and start out on a solid foundation.

  • I know people that were separated from their 30s until now, and they never divorced. Sometimes people do it for insurance or whatever. Ask why he isn't divorced, and go from there.

  • I would have to know why he has been separated for so long with no divorce before pursing any relationship with him
