Q: Can you date while legally separated in TN?

A: In Tennessee divorce law, having sex with someone who is not your spouse prior to divorce, but after separation, is still adultery.

Of course, dating does not necessarily lead to sexual relations, but it certainly can and often does. In Tennessee divorce law, having sex with someone who is not your spouse prior to divorce, but after separation, is still adultery. And dating, even if sex is not a part of it, can still be considered marital misconduct even if it does not rise to the level of adultery per se.
