in MA what is considered the length of marriage
In MA is the total length of marriage considered date of marriage to date of divorce finalized,court date of divorce proceedings,legal seperation,seperation if no paperwork was ever filed ?

I ask because I have been seperated years but not legally no paperwork was ever drawn up so when that day comes along....which it will...he doesn't want a divorce even though he has had a GF almost 3 years and pays me no support..is he not shooting himself in the foot making our marriage a longer and longer one it could turn into a long term marriage if this goes on verses a medium long one as it stands now.

Re: in MA what is considered the length of marriage
I urge you to talk to a local attorney in your area who specializes in divorce as the laws differ from state to state. In Michigan for example normally the lengty of the marriage is the date of the marriage to the date that the divorce is finalized unless there is some reason to use an earlier date such as the date a divorce was filed for example. Good luck to you.
