in some states you can sue the person your husband/wife was having an affair with. So lets say you find out your man (or woman) has been messing around on you for a year and decided to leave you for her. You stumbled across evidence of the year long affair and that she knew abt you the entire time. when you confronted him he chose to leave you. now you have evidence...would you take her to court and sue her or let it go? do you think this should even be an option?
As of January 2008, the only states in the United States that allow alienation of affection lawsuits are: Hawaii, Illinois, Mississippi, New Mexico, North Carolina, South Dakota, and Utah.
i wanted to add that my husband isn't really cheating on me. this is just a hypothetical thing. i think some thought i was really going through this
