(For a printable version, click here.) We are having serious marital problems. When a husband and wife face serious marital problems, they often have difficult legal questions that must be answered. The couple should first try to resolve their differences with the help of a neutral third party such as a minister or a marriage counselor. Lawyers are bound by the Rules of Professional Conduct which prohibit representing both sides in an adversarial — or potentially adversarial — situation.However the subjective intent of a spouse is analyzed by his or her objective conduct.There are many California marital dissolution cases where one spouse thought he or she was separated on a certain date, only to find that he or she was not.but she had her own apartment) and we knew from when we met that it was different.We were both hesitant to get into something romantic right away given his situation, but after 3 weeks of hanging out 3-4 days a week just as friends (no touching, just hours and hours of fun and deep conversation) we kissed and became a couple.They met young and had totally different views on everything.
