In addition -
I was thinking about his definition of the word "separation" last night after we spoke again (nice conversation, brief, idle chit-chat). It seems to me that yes, we are EMOTIONALLY separated right now. But a marital separation is not purely an emotional one. If we are to be emotionally separated while living together & sleeping together, that would actually be called cake-eating on his part IMO. So, seems to me he needs to understand that while I do not wish to be separated, if he does we'll need to be completely separated ...

what say you?
