One more question about criminal conversation


Dear jean:

Greetings. Criminal conversation is a “strict liability” tort. Therefore, while the evidence of the ex wife’s behavior and your husband’s behavior may be predictor’s of future behavior - it is irrelevant in the hearing for criminal conversation.

Also, although off the topic, why marry someone that has such “past behavior,” if it is such a predictor of his future behavior? Just wondering.

If I am getting sued from my husbands ex wife for criminal conversation because she is mad at him for not paying 2 checks out of four years for 3,000 dollars then does it weaken her case if i bring out the fact that when she first started her relationship with him he was married to his first wife with two small children. Isn’t past behavior a predictor of future behavior?
Thanks for your response
