    Hi,

    My former partner and I have separated amicably a number of years ago. We obtained consent orders at the time for a property settlement. Neither of us are looking at getting a divorce after the separation.

    Are there any advantages or disadvantages to staying separated but not divorced?

    Thanks.

    Some that immediately come to mind:

    Advantage: You can remarry
    Disadvantage: You might decide to remarry.

    Advantage: If you get back together no need to remarry
    Disadvantage: Wife may be entitled to assets if you die
