"separation" and "separated" in terms of marital status.       How do we use "separation" and "separated" in terms of marital status. Thank you so much.

I will try to explain using my perspective and the little knowledge that I acquired, but I am not native neither a professional teacher, just a student.


Separation is a NOUN, so I can say. My SEPARATION was like a cold war, without any shooting but with a huge pressure and a heavy atmosphere.


Separated, it can be an ADJECTIVE or the past tense of a VERB= I think she is a SEPARATED girl, so why I cannot try something with her, considering that I am SEPARATED too.

In general, when a wife and a husband start living apart from each other - they are separated (but still legally married). A legal separation of marriage occurs either through court proceedings or with an informal agreement. This process saves you significant legal expenses and gives you time to work out your differences.
