Separated and dating again
Maybe you hate yourself a little bit because of that.
Being in such a volatile and unhealthy relationship had really taken a toll on how I felt about myself. Hello 40’s: This might apply to any woman, married or divorced, but it’s hard to ignore the number 40.

Bearing this in mind, it makes sense to reside together, since it will ease the communication and create fewer considerations as the divorce is finalized (again according to Find Law.com).
I think my drive home that night was the turning point in my newly separated life.
In a few short hours, I’d gone from thinking my romantic opportunities were over to realizing that a new part of my life was just beginning. Although, let’s be honest, I looked at my cell phone every three seconds the next day.
The main difference between the two is that a legal separation is a court order, which mandates the rights and duties of a couple while they are married.
Meanwhile, a divorce is a complete dissolution of the marriage (according to Find Law.com).
