Unfortunately, there is more that you shouldn’t do than should, but first let’s clarify what is meant by “dating.” Legally, “dating” means one-on-one social contact with another person.There is no distinction between platonic contacts and ones that are romantic or sexual, although from a practical standpoint, the romantic/sexual relationships are the ones that draw scrutiny and cause complications.If you give your spouse a sexually transmitted disease, kiss even more property goodbye.However, if you and your spouse have simply "moved on," and the marriage is clearly over for all intents and purposes, some judges might view the relationship as irrelevant.This ground requires that the “spouses have lived apart without cohabitation for at least three years.” The third ground for divorce is confinement in a mental hospital, and requires that one spouse be confined in a state or private mental hospital for at least three years plus the requirement that “the mental disorder is of such a degree and nature that adjustment is unlikely or that, if adjustment occurs, relapse is probable” The next ground is cruelty, which occurs when one spouse treats the other spouse cruelly and living together is insupportable.Abandonment can also be a reason for divorce, and requires that one spouse has “left the complaining spouse with the intention of abandonment; and remained away for at least one year.” Conviction of a felony and adultery are the last two grounds.Thus, adultery may be catastrophic to your interests in some cases and irrelevant in others.
Many times, where adultery was present, couples decide they do not want allegations of adultery in a public record, or they do not want to escalate an already tense situation, so they agree to divorce on no-fault grounds.
