Katharine McPhee is dating her former "Smash" director Michael Morris, TMZ has learned ... and they're even making out in public -- problem is, THEY'RE BOTH MARRIED TO OTHER PEOPLE. 

Morris is married to actress Mary McCormack (who played Howard Stern's wife in "Private Parts") ... and they have 3 young daughters together, ages 2, 6 and 9.

29-year-old Katharine is married to 47-year-old producer Nick Cokas -- they have no children. 

Sources close to Katharine and Nick tell TMZ ... the two have been separated for 6 months and are living apart. They were married in 2008.

It's unclear where Michael's relationship with Mary stands -- but it seems it's also on the ropes, because over the weekend he was sucking face with Katharine in broad daylight in L.A. like he didn't care who saw. 

The two weren't shy with the PDA either -- holding hands and cuddling each other in Hollywood.

So far, no official comment from any of the parties involved.

I don't understand why people cheat. Why even get married? Even if your marriage is on the rocks, wait til it's officially over to move on...& then give it even more time if there are children involved. It's sad.

Married is married. Get a divorce and whore around all you want. In the meantime, respect your vow even if you hate your current spouse and at least have the decency to be an adulterer on the down low.

On the plus side, McCormack can now get back to boffing Craig Kilborne, or whatever his name is, the late night host from Scotland. They are very friendly, possibly too friendly, on her visits.
