If you share a residence with someone, this living arrangement affects the amount of your monthly expenses and your need for support from your spouse or your ability to contribute to the support of your spouse. This is true whether you are romantically involved with this person or not. If you are romantically involved with a person with whom you share a residence, a court may determine that you are cohabiting with that person. Cohabitation by a spouse receiving support can be a basis for the reduction or termination of spousal support. 5. Q. But if I don't have children and alimony is not an issue, I can carry on my extramarital relationship while my property settlement is being negotiated, right? A. Wrong. Extramarital sexual relations before divorce can have an adverse affect on the other spouse, perhaps leading to unwanted complications in your settlement negotiations. This risk is especially high if the other spouse did not know of the "other woman" or the "other man" before agreeing to a negotiated settlement, but it can arise even if there was full knowledge beforehand. Infidelity typically causes hurt, embarrassment and anger, especially when the adultery is public knowledge. A relationship while the divorce is pending can create these feelings, and the risk is that the spouse will seek vindication or revenge. This motive may manifest itself in serious problems when your lawyer tries to bargain for a "fair" division of property or to avoid an excessive settlement demand from the injured spouse. Steer clear of adulterous conduct if you want your lawyer to be able to deal with opposing counsel based on facts and finances, rather than hurt feelings. 6. Q. I've heard about heart-balm lawsuits against "the other woman" or "the other man."  Can dating after separation give cause to that kind of lawsuit? A. Heart-balm lawsuits against "the other man/woman," mean that your spouse files an alienation of affection claim and a claim for criminal conversation.  Early in 2002 the Court of Appeals ruled that a claim of alienation of affection pertains to a dating relationship during the marriage.  However, a criminal conversation claim can be maintained and successfully litigated when sexual acts occur before or after the date of separation.  Heart-balm lawsuits are complicated and, often, very expensive if taken to trial.  Therefore, if you engage in sexual conduct with the person you're dating you could be exposing them to a criminal conversation lawsuit.     [rev.
