my son and I have something known as Nerofibromatosis. This illness causes tumors to grow within our bodies. I currently have brain tumors which affects my ability to function 100% normaly. My memory is poor as is my spelling and grammar abilities. It is a part of who my youngest is and a part of who I am. It is not all of ether of us.

My husbands best friends brother has a condition known as tuberous sclerosis. He was supposed to have died at a very young age. He is now close to 30 and still alive. He has had a few brain surgeries and has had to have his shunt replaced a few times. They run a program to help people with this condition.

No.  You got cheated on, get over it and move on.

there could be manythings

often when a partner cheats it leads to divorce which leads to finacial hardships. It also can lead to emotional hardships as well.

In the state of NC you can sue the other man/woman in a court of law, but you have to have strong proof

I don't think you should be able to sue, but I do think the person who cheated should have to pay some form of allomony/spousal support until the other person gets re-married. I'm not saying something outragious either. But they owe it to the spouse they cheated on, imo.

Not worth it IMO


Plus the courts have more important things to worry about

 You are allowed to take legal action against any breech of contract...marriage is a legal contract so I think you should be allowed to sue your spouse for breaking it and the other person/people as accomplices. They are far and few between, but there have been people that have done it and won.
