Is it wrong to express interest in someone...

...if my divorce is not final. I've been separated for awhile, but my divorce is not final. Would it be wrong to let someone know I'm interested in "hanging out'?

  • I was engaged before my divorce was final. My ex-husband and I simply lagged on filing for divorce so we were already not living together and engaged to others for like 4 years before we finally got officially divorced. So, I don't see an issue.

  • No way, the divorce is on it's way, go for it. If you weren't in the process of a divorce, it'd be a different story. There's nothing wrong with just hanging out though!

  • How much longer will it be until your divorce is final? You can wait for the hearing or you can go sign the papers and expedite it and it be over quicker if everyone is in agreement. Otherwise, in my opinion, your married until your divorced. If that person is interested they will still be there when your no longer married.

  • There is nothing wrong with "hanging out" with someone. Just be sure to give yourself time to heal after your divorce. Ending a marriage is a painful thing (I guess it might depend on how long you have been separated) My ex husband and I were separated for years, so I don't see an issue as long as you are not rushing into a new relationship before you are healed from the previous one.

  • According to my lawyer, it isn't wrong at all. You're legally separated, marriage is not getting back together. Do what makes you happy.
