There are two meanin, one is the original and the other modern. The original meaning of mensa et toro means from table to bed, and the modern meaning means Legal seperation.

Legal separation is the right term

This phrase designates a Divorce which is really akin to a separation granted by a court whereby a Husband and Wife are not legally obligated to live together, but their marriage has not been dissolved. Neither spouse has the right to remarry where there is a divorce a mensa et thoro; only parties who have been awarded a divorce a vinculo matrimonii, the more common type of divorce, can do so.
