This is a wonderful law for wounded spouses or for people with horrible inlaws or corrupt clergy or therapists. And also to protect an intact family.
But, for a bystander, there does not seem to be any defense at all for aa or criminal conversation. Nothing really has to be proven except that there was contact between two people and the spouse of one didn’t like that. A sex act does not have to be witnessed. The bystander could have been told s/he was single and believed that and still be in trouble. What about something happening one time in an unusually stressful situation. Like war? As for AA, even if it’s the married person initiating all the contact, s/he is held innocent and the outsider is liable.
Isn’t this a hothouse for unethical lawyers to flourish?
Every ad I’ve seen regarding this encourages the consumer to hire that lawyer for pursuing a suit against a third party.
I have not seen any lawyer offer to defend against that kind of suit.
How can there be a law on the books for which there is absolutely no defense?
And judges are awarding abusive penalties.
