    Exclamation can a divorce be automatically granted after living apart for so many years?

    What is the name of your state? OH My husband and I have been legally separated for almost five years. We have not seen or spoken during that time as there is a restraining order against him until the divorce is final. There are no children as a result of this marriage which lasted seven months.

    My response:

    No. You could be legally separated, or otherwise separated, for the rest of your lives. But, unless you or he petitions the court for a final order of dissolution, you'll remain married to him until your dying day.

    why are you still married to him? If the time together was only 7 months and no kids, what is the delay? Hell, your separation as a married couple is longer than your marriage when you were together.

    My response:

    Tax purposes.
