Having lunch with a friend once per proverbial blue moon is not seen as dating because the goal is casual friendship, not a more connected relationship.

Otherwise, the one promoting the separation should admit to self and spouse that the ultimate goal is divorce.

If it is not, then he should stop the parasitic behavior and stand on his own two feet.
A person who remains married for the children’s sake, but is separated and dating, refuses to be what a parent should be. A parent who thinks she gives her children comfort by not pursuing divorce breaks their hearts if she dates.
