Grande & Gomez Split After Two Year Marriage  

Ariana Grande is an internationally recognized singer, songwriter, and actress from the United States. She initially gained fame through her role as Cat Valentine on Nickelodeon's "Victorious" and its spinoff, "Sam & Cat."  

Grande later transitioned to music, where she has achieved massive commercial success with hits like "Thank U, Next," "7 Rings," and "No Tears Left To Cry." Her vocal range and style have often drawn comparisons to Mariah Carey, solidifying her status as one of the most influential pop artists of her generation. 

Dalton Gomez, on the other hand, maintains a relatively low profile compared to his famous wife. He is a successful real estate agent based in Los Angeles, working for the luxury real estate company Aaron Kirkman Group. Despite his marriage to Grande thrusting him into the limelight, Gomez prefers to stay out of the public eye, focusing on his career and personal life. 

In late July, Grande announced that the pair were separating. However, they have allegedly been separated since January of this year.  

Grande is now dating Ethan Slater, one of her co-stars in Wicked. Slater is also separated from his spouse. Below, we will discuss how dating can affect your uncontested divorce.  

The Ramifications of Dating During Separation in an Uncontested Divorce 

When a marriage comes to an end, the process of divorce can be a challenging and emotionally draining journey. One option that can simplify this process is an uncontested divorce. This type of divorce offers numerous benefits over a contested divorce. However, it's essential to understand how your actions, including dating during separation, can affect the outcome of your uncontested divorce. 

Understanding Uncontested Divorce 

An uncontested divorce is one where both parties agree on all issues related to their separation, such as:  

  • property division,  

  • debt division,  

  • child custody, and  

  • spousal support.  

This type of divorce is typically quicker, less expensive, and less stressful than a contested divorce, as it eliminates the need for a lengthy court battle. The couple simply needs to present their agreement to the court for approval. 

Dating During Separation & Its Impact 

Dating during separation can complicate these matters. It can affect the other spouse's emotions, which in turn can impact negotiations and agreements. It may also influence the court's decisions, especially concerning child custody. If a new partner is introduced too soon, the court might question your judgment and stability, which could affect your custody rights. 

Moreover, if you start dating and it leads to cohabitation, it could potentially affect any spousal support you may receive. Courts might view your new relationship as a means of financial support, thereby reducing or eliminating any alimony. 

Navigating Dating During Separation 

Given these potential complications, it might be wise to hold off on dating until after your divorce is finalized. This approach ensures that your personal life does not negatively impact your uncontested divorce proceedings. However, if you choose to date, it is crucial to keep your children's best interests in mind and maintain transparency with your ex-spouse to avoid any unnecessary conflict.
