SeparatedbutStayingMarried


Is this a trend? I am dating my husband. We live in separate apartments. We are raising a kid together. Our son does not know that we are dating. We wouldn't want to confuse him or give him false hopes. But we have never been closer, never gotten along better, never had better sex. The woman who does my eyelashes told me that this is becoming more and more common? Have  you heard about this? And what are your thoughts?

    I've never heard of this, but I think that if this relationship works for you both, then keep at it. Relationships aren't necessarily defined by anything and if it's healthy for your relationship and fulfilling your needs, and still benefiting and in the best interest of your child, then I say go for it! It's hard for me to say how I feel about it because I'm not in that situation.

      Thanks so much for your thoughts though. I really appreciated what you had to say. Truth is, before this moment in my life, I probably would have advised others against such a thing. But never say never I guess. You are right that relationships aren't necessarily defined by anything. We make the definitions don't we?

        Absolutely. I have so many friends who have so many different types of relationships and they all work, whether or not it's something I would do personally, and vice versa. It's all about your own comfort zone and expectations.
