Separation can be a great way to rethink your priorities and get your marriage back on track. Sometimes, marriages become so difficult and spouses are unable to be in the presence of each other. This is where a trial separation can either make them realize how much they need each other, or let them know that their marriage is over for good. However, if you and your husband are separated and he is dating, this could be a problem.
How to Date Your Spouse During a Separation
My husband and I are separatedHe is dating someone newIs it cheating? | Yahoo Answers
I get so many emails asking me about whether to date someone who is separated, recently divorced, or even fresh out of a breakup that I wanted to tackle this tricky subject. It would be handy if we could avoid the vulnerability that comes with doing the due diligence and taking appropriate action where needed. I personally know people who have gotten together while one party was separated, and in one case the wife refused to sign so they had to wait for it to lapse and got married as soon as it did a few years later, and in the other instances where it worked out, there was no faffing about with the divorce, Future Faking etc. The experience over time that we spend with a person means that we get to see if actions and words match and whether what we thought or they suggested was on the cards is actually happening.

The dos and don’ts of dating when you’re separated but not divorced
In most divorces, there is a period after the marriage is over in the minds of the parties, but before the marriage is over in the eyes of the law. This is a difficult period for both parties, because they're torn between two competing ideas: fidelity to the now-ended but not legally finished marriage, and equally strong desire to move on and start a new life. That's probably why so many divorcing people have questions about sex and new relationships.
If you are a woman going through a separation, it's only natural to wonder whether your husband has already moved on. Whether your perspective is that of a spouse ready to permanently end the marriage or one seeking to reconcile, you need to know how your husband is feeling. Some of the signs that he is still emotionally attached include frequent, affectionate contact with you, accommodating your needs with respect to property and visitation rights, speaking in the present tense about the relationship and maintaining a routine that is similar to your married life. Separations can produce bitter silence between spouses, so it is noteworthy if your husband continues to maintain frequent contact with you.
