A lot of people have asked me whether or not an adult married person can ever be really “divorced” from his/her wife/husband. The answer is no. Why? This is because a married couple in the United States of America is considered a legal marriage, and as such is afforded all the same rights and privileges that one would expect a legally married couple to enjoy. Therefore, even though a person may be married to another individual, the act of “conversion” does not change the legal status of the individual and they are still considered to be married.
This doesn’t mean that a person cannot have sexual relationships with other individuals, it just means that the individual cannot benefit financially or legally from such relationships. Now, an adult can still have a life partner. If the adult was married to someone else, they cannot have a life partner under U.S. law. Therefore, a person can have someone else to be sexually intimate with while they are married. Of course, this isn’t legal, but it’s possible.
Can an adult to have sexual relations with someone who is not their spouse? The short answer to this question is yes. It depends on the state where the person is having the affair. Some states will allow an adult to have sexual relations with someone else who is not their spouse for purposes of equal distribution of conjugal property (ie: property shared amongst the partners). Other states will require that the adult either remain married to the “other” or obtain a court order to prove that the person is not currently in a relationship with the “other.”
An adult can have sexual relationships with someone else who is married but not necessarily as a way to gain financial benefits. In fact, this is often avoided by married individuals. A married person has an interest in their financial stability more so than an adult who is not yet married. If the adult is thinking about having a sexual affair, they should at least get a divorce or separation agreement from their current partner.
Will an adult married affair get them into trouble with the law? Yes, it can and it often does. Each state has their own laws regarding marriage and sexual conduct. An adult who is caught engaging in sexual activities with another adult whether they are married or not can get themselves thrown in jail. They may even face some serious consequences in the workplace.
Can an adult still have a normal social life after being in a committed relationship with someone else? The short answer to this question is yes. Many adults that are married have great lives and do quite well. People in a committed relationship tend to be much happier and healthier.
How does one go about avoiding these pitfalls when they are involved with another adult? There are a number of different things that people can do. It is important to keep in mind that many people will enter into a committed relationship with someone only to get married later. This means that the other adult may not be truly interested in getting married and may not care about the marriage as much as the initial adult.
The best advice for dealing with a married hookup comes down to just taking it easy. If someone is truly into someone else and not simply in it for the sex, then there may be no problem. People will usually try to find the best love possible and it often doesn’t involve sex. Just make sure that you and the other person are friends beforehand so that there is some trust between the two of you. That way you know where your relationship is headed and that it won’t be a bad decision to continue on with the relationship. After all, everyone is looking for something different when they commit to a serious relationship with someone else.
