Recipe for a relationship did I leave out anything?

The differences between being in a partnership, being married, and being separated and being divorced what would that list look like:
If you start striking stuff off this list ...well you can see what will happen. Over the next 14 days I will write about each one and what I think. Its cathartic for me so I hope you enjoy.
First I want to define the different stages:
Partnership - boyfriend, girlfriend, fiancee - pretty much not one of the other 3
Married - tied to each either by God or by the state
Separated - not together, not exclusive, not committed to staying together, trying to see if you can make it apart, I believe at this stage there is no going back to the way it was (that can be good or bad)
Divorced - its over, both are moving on, not legally bound to each other.
