Spouses are 'separated' when one person in the relationship has withdrawn from the relationship without any reasonable prospect of reconciliation or resumption of cohabitation. This means that you can be married and separated at the same time. In fact, in almost all cases, you have to have been separated from your spouse for at least one year before you can divorce. A divorce legally ends the marriage and allows former spouses to remarry.
