No, unfortunately not. The law in South Carolina requires that you actually live separate and apart, not just in separate rooms and not having sex. You just have to prove that you live in separate houses. How you do that depends on where you live. So if it is wth friends then show maybe you had your mail forwarded there, maybe an affidavit from them - it truly depends. The case law in your state is best determinative of same. Good luck.
