Also if dating during seperation the spouse (who did not date) can use that against you in legal procedures. Thus giving the spouse more control over financial, child custody, and other agreements during the divorce procedures.

purpose of separation is to work out problems not begin dating

however the world chooses to use it in the eyes of The Father in Heaven you are still married ...many believed they were strong enough to "just date" and play with fire thinking they can be strong in promoting sin while flaunting their self-will to "only" date

although today people of the world marry for reasons other than the divine purpose it was created by the Creator and most carry on in their marriage as if they were still single

Numbers 30:2
If a man vow a vow unto the LORD, or swear an oath to bind his soul with a bond, he shall not break his word, he shall do according to all that proceedeth out of his mouth.
Ecclesiastes 5:4-7
When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it, for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed. Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay. Suffer not thy mouth to cause thy flesh to sin, neither say thou before the angel, that it was an error: wherefore should God be angry at thy voice, and destroy the work of thine hands? For in the multitude of dreams and many words there are also divers vanities: but fear thou God.

You made a vow before God when you got married as for dating 1 Thessalonians 5:22
Abstain from all appearance of evil, Matthew 19:3-6 The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause? And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

curt? This sounds like the same ol' Curt from years ago, 2001 maybe, that posted such crazy stuff then. Now you still haven't got it right. I still believe you are the alter-ego of Eloy.
---Elder on 3/7/11

I don't see why you can't go out ,that's not a sin. you can be friends and have comfort. nothing wrong with that, im in the same boat. and i understand how you feel. be frinds and then when you get the devorce, you will have a chance to see if its the right person or not.
---kurt on 3/7/11

Moderator got it right! The night befor you are maried you're single. The night before the devorce is final, not just a legal separation, you're married.
Why divorce in the first place?
---Gilbert on 9/23/08

I agree with Marla, it is a sin... adultry. I learned this the hard way when I started dating a woman who was seperated like yourself. It was then that the Lord showed me that adultry is leaving your love, fornication is the act of sex.
---Larry on 9/23/08

yes it is a sin and he should not do it. i believe it is always a chance for a change in marriage if couple want pay a price to recover the marriage. they should start respect each other and do what is best for the partner.
---Kasia on 3/7/07

Yes it is a sin as it would be adultry as you are still married if not divorced yet. Just because one person in relationship sins does not make it right for other one to sin as well. Be the strong one and wait.
---Marla on 3/6/07

Until your divorce papers are in your hand, signed by a Judge, on record, you are still married. Wait, hold your head high knowing that you are right w/God and HIS WORD. You will like yourself alot more than live in regret. You will be repected more, too.

Alan: That advice was for people who have gone through divorce. My advice for anyone having gone through divorce is to wait till the ex remarries before you date. That is based on Biblical teachings about adultery and remarriage.
---Madison on 11/20/05

Madison I was married at 29, then widowed at 62 after 33 years.
Should I wait for 33 years before considering whether I can remarry (if someone turns up)? That would make me 95! Some chance then!
Incidently, I am sure I am not the only decent Christian out there who is not married.
---alan8869_of_UK on 11/20/05

If your husband has left you for another woman you could sue him for divorce but do not date anyone else until all that is settled. Steve the 'death us do part' was a two way contract broken by the one moved out to be with someone else. That is one contract that scripture allows the innocent partner to be free from when the other partner has reneged on it. Would you give the same answer to a man who's wife has left him for another man?
---emg on 11/20/05

NVBarb: I heard someone say that one should wait as many years as they were married before dating again. Since I was married for 25 years, I shouldn't have dated till I was 70. I dated one year after my ex remarried. I can't find a decent Christian man who isn't already married. Jesus is my love right now. Who could ask for more?
---Madison on 11/19/05

, you are married until your spouse dies, regardless of what they do. "....'till death do us part?" sound familiar?

What's the rush Sara? God says NO! And from a legal standpoint you are married, your husband could sue YOU on grounds of adultry.
ANYONE who has gone through a divorce should wait at least a year to heal before dating, IMHO.
---NVBarbara on 11/15/05

Yes, it's a sin.
---WIVV on 11/14/05

John would your comment remain the same if it involved your Mother?
---Elder on 11/13/05

i made that fatal mistake twice Sarah, please dont do it, it only leads to you getting hurt in the end.

You knew the answer to this before you posted the question. You had already decided that if your husband is married and dating that it's a sin.......
---Dee on 11/13/05

Yes it is a sin...In God's eyes you are still married.
---wes on 11/13/05

I believe that Jesus taught that divorce was allowed in the case of fornication.I can't see anywhere that just going out with someone is not allowed until the legal paper work is done.Maria,I don't think dating is committing adultery.Going out with someone doesn't mean your in bed with them.

Moderator - Please show the scriptures that state a married person can date.
---john on 11/13/05

It would be a sin to date AFTER you got a "Legal Separation."
Although "legally separated" you would still be married.
What is the hurry? Is this some kind of race they are in?
After/if this marriage ends it would be good for the person to sit back and survey what caused the problem.
