My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear about your situation.
If the two of you can agree that you have no joint assets and that each will walk away with what you had going into the marriage
, then whether or not you are dating will have no effect on the divorce. However, it could help to have a written property settlement
The two of you have not been married long enough that a judge would be likely to award her alimony
, so whether you're dating wouldn't be a factor in that. Also, dating would usually only be considered in a fault-based divorce where she claimed that your dating someone else is what destroyed the marriage. That's not the scenario you have described.
Mississippi is one of the few states that still recognizes alienation of affection
as a cause of action. That means that, when a spouse cheats, the other spouse may be able to sue the paramour for damages. However, that usually applies when a cheating spouse ends an otherwise solid marriage, not when a person begins dating after determining independently that a broken marriage cannot be repaired.
