A procedure of legal separation exists for husbands and wives who want to be able to live separately, without having to divorce.
When a legal separation comes into effect, the spouses are still married but on the basis of a division of property, and they have no obligation of conjugal life anymore.
Nevertheless, the other obligations born with the marriage keep living on, in particular those of fidelity and help.
The legal separation can be ended by a divorce, or by a new start of the conjugal life.
