Hello wefugees! 

My wife has a European citizen passport, and we have been legally married since august 2018. We have been living together here in Germany for more than 3 years now. I have been working ever since then, and I currently have unbefristet work contract in my working place. My question is, if my wife and I separate or divorce now, will I loose my residence permit? This august will make it 4 years since we have been legally married. I got my residence permit of a member of an EU citizen since June 2019. It will expire on February next year 2023. What happens to my residence permit if my wife and I are to separate or divorce or I no longer live in the same apartment with her now?
