    Guys call wife & current gf as "EX"

    I recently noticed a lot of guys I know from online dating are calling their partner as “EX” when they are still together:
    – married man who still living with their wife & kid, not separated yet, talking about divorce proceeding now
    – married man who still living with their wife and kids, not talking about divorce
    – married man who live apart from their wife and kid for 12 years, not divorce yet
    – single man who live with their gf but in separate room (he claim so)
    – single man who broke off with their gf but still texting and chatting with them (cannot get over his ex)

    Are they just trying to use the term “ex” to let the girls feel they are “available” some how, but asking for date, support, attention, sex. This is such a bad deal for the girls as things get really depressing and messy during the divorce if the girl stay & support him, but after the divorce most guys will said the divorce scare him, he want to “take a break and enjoy his single life”.

    Such circumstances are not all that uncommon especially if a couple owns a home together and it’s not just guys.
    Prior to my getting divorced from my first wife there was a period where we had separate bedrooms/different home phone lines.
    More often than not the tension rises to such a point where someone feels they have to move out for their own peace of mind.
    However there are some former couples I imagine who maintain a friendship and can handle being roommates.

    I also dated a woman who had been separated from her husband for 20 years and neither bothered to file for divorce.
    They weren’t in contact nor did they know where the other was living. Lack of finances can sometimes play a part as well.
    They may be saving money to move but also want to date.

    In other instances remaining married can serve as buffer to keep a person from impulsively jumping into another marriage.
    They would have to go through the expense/legal process before they could get married again.
