"happily married"

I assume you are asking about alienation of affection. To show that a marraige was working before the alienation took place generally requires proof of a good relationship. Evidence might include flowers being sent, cards, lots of calls, friends seeing you happy together, etc.

Good luck.

What is the definition of happily married? What would be needed in a court case to prove that the couple was happily married prior to the separation?
