Yes, you can. But, if you later seek a divorce based upon living separate and apart pursuant to a separation agreement, you can run into a problem.
This has been an issue for many couples - in particular couples who are under water on their residence who stay together because they cannot sell the property. However, if the issue is addressed in the Separation Agreement, the problem is resolved.
If you rely on the no fault grounds for divorce and do not seek a divorce based upon living separate and apart pursuant to a Separation Agreement, you will have less likelihood of a problem arising.
