We are catholic and my best friend knew this guy for a long time and he just broke it off with his wife. They are in the process of getting a divorce now ans shes been dating him they been separated for a couple of months now. If people want to be Christian and negotiate or listen to God so as to skip, or not skip, some rules, and be accountable only to Him, there are other denominations.If you're a Catholic and really want to abide by what the Vatican says, you must be ready to sacrifice a few things. Take my word for it, seperated does not mean divorced.Having sex with him thereby weakening his bond with the estranged wife and strengthening her own bond with the man, is a sin against the marriage and harms spouses and any children the marriage has produce.
The bible is absolutely full of immorality condoned by god, why would sleeping with someone while you are in the process of divorce be any less moral?
But if people wish to live by someone else's rules, so be it.

I think she is and i attend church and study the bible when i can but i am not sure. His dating and having sex with another person while legally separated is interfering with the separated partner's marriage. The best chances for this is when either or both spouses have NOT begun a relationship with someone else while estranged from each other.
Christian marriage is ordained by God, (His will is that married people stay married, ideally) therefore dating a separated person is a sin.
If people here are judging, then God will handle that, accusing people of judging is not necessary.
