Sc law dating seperation
No divorce from the bonds of matrimony shall be granted except upon one or more of the following grounds, to wit: (1) adultery; (2) desertion for a period of one year; (3) physical cruelty; (4) habitual drunkenness; provided, that this ground shall be construed to include habitual drunkenness caused by the use of any narcotic drug; or (5) on the application of either party if and when the husband and wife have lived separate and apart without cohabitation for a period of one year.
It would depend on the opinion of the officers conducting the inquiry.
However, the timing of the adultery may be considered.
Adultery in the military is punishable when it is construed as morally wrong.
One spouse must file a petition with the court and a judge decides issues of property, support and custody, much as he would in a divorce.
At the end of the litigation, the court issues a decree of legal separation.
Legal separation can mean different things in different states, so it should come as no surprise that the laws regarding dating after legal separation are also somewhat inconsistent.
