Most Helpful Guy
I think most people use trial separation as a means of getting away from a partner without saying "I want a divorce." For a trial separation to work, you need to have a discussion about whether it is acceptable to date other people, whether you will date each other, and have a target date for re-evaluation your relationship and making a decision about it. Usually, one partner will not want to have this discussion and that gives you a strong clue as to their actual intentions.
