Is it still considered cheating?

If one is separated from his wife, yet still legally married, and has an affair with another woman, is that considered cheating?

If your are legally separated ( and not living together), then no, I don't think it's cheating.

Depends. Is the married couple trying to reconcile or have they both decided that the marriage is over? Because if the marriage is over for all intents and purposes, then all that's left to do is cross some Ts and dot some Is. It's not 'cheating' at that point, but it may be legally adulterous if the separation wasn't formalized and divorce proceedings haven't begun.

Legally, if you have filed for divorce,....then an extramarital affair is considered...." After the fact,...." therefore it is not cheating because you have already declared your intent......If you have not filed for separation......then it is considered as adultery...

If you are legally separated [one party has filed for divorce and the respondent has been served papers] and on your way to ending the marriage I would say no.

Some people would agree....but in the eyes of the law/court- NO.


Big Woof
In the eyes of God yes. Do you remember your wedding vows? Perhaps you should review them.

Once you are still legally married, and have an affair it is still out of marriage. It is considered cheating.

Separation in that state does not mean divorce. You have decided not to live together and there is a tendency that you two can make up.

only if she finds out about it.

I think so. You are still married maybe you haveing problems but you still are cheating!

I feel that you are married unless you are LEGALY divorced. To many people file papers mess around then figure out the grass is not greener.

For me, your separated because you can't work out whatever the issues are while living together. I don't get the point of living separately and living separate lives WHILE married. If your separated but not actively working out issues, AND seeing other people......I think divorce is best.

Some people use "separations" as an excuse to play the field.

If they are legally married to each other, then yes.. any other "relationships" they may have with others, is cheating. It's adultury, and it's wrong. If they want to go and be with other people, then they should have the decency to end their marriage first..

It is still classed as adultery.

No, but you have to at least file for divorce to be fair with the other woman.

Yes it's cheating knucklehead. Unless the separation period is less than 24 hours and your wife is a Bajoran alien from the Alpha Quadrant of Star Trek.

But remember, if she gets pregnant during the separation:
"Bajoran fetuses are also irremovable due to the high degree of vascularization in the placental/uterine interface."

With my stupid comments aside, fyi in many states if she gets pregnant during your separation period, you are legally entitled to be the recognized father until paternity tests can be conducted POST-DELIVERY.

Think about that one. (Like medical bills in the thousands from problematic pregnancies/deliveries.) Insurance up to date? Here you go:

"Estimated Costs of Premature Babies 15 Times Greater
Employers pay nearly $42,000 in average health care costs in a premature baby's first year of life, says the March of Dimes. That compares to about $2,800 for a full-term baby with no complications."

yes it is still cheating. if you have not been divorced, or separated legally, it doesnt give you the freedom to get another partner.
