My husband and I separated recently and he said he needed time to figure things out, last night he came over to the house to see the kids and he ended up spenting the night ( no sex) but we slept in the same bed and he ask me if we could act like we were boyfriend and girlfriend and not bring up the marriage thing for awhile. I told him we could but with the understanding that we would just be with just each other. Did I do the right thing? I want to save my marriage.I guess I am thinking that maybe after 11 years of Marriage that maybe we forgot to date so maybe this will help get us back where we need to be.

Sure. Maybe he's bored? If i where you i'd hit the bookstore and look for  a relationship books that can help relight the spark. He wants to date again and he wants the excitement that went along with it. Take your ring off it it helps him. It's not your marriage it's just a ring. I say play along and find a book that could give you some ideas as to keep it interesting without taking a pretend step back.

I think it would depend on the reason for the seperation.

 I think you should have had the discussion of expectations before you seperated. If you didn't want to have sleeping around happen then it should have been discussed.

Also agree with MagicTemptation.

 I guess I'd want to understand what he expected from this boyfriend/girlfriend thing. There also would need to be time parameters on it too. What about finances? Living arrangements? Other people? There are a lot of things to agree on before you go there.
