  • Yep, you read the title right.

    "In 2011, a North Carolina judge ordered a woman to pay $30 million to her husband's ex-wife because the more recent relationship began with infidelity. Despite criticism, a few states still allow for such "alienation of affection" lawsuits."

    It wasn’t surprising to many who practice law in North Carolina that Carol Puryear won her lawsuit in 2011. All she had to do was prove that she and Donald were legally married, that they genuinely loved each other, and that the defendant, Devin, enticed her husband away from her, causing an alienation of Donald’s affection toward his wife.
    **What was surprising, however, was the $30 million in monetary damages awarded to the plaintiff. It is believed to be one of the largest rewards handed down in the state.**
    “For my client, it was not about the money,” Stephanie Jenkins, Carol Puryear’s lawyer, told the News & Observer at the time. “It was about sending a message that people should be held accountable for their actions.”
    Seven years after this historic judgment, that message remains codified in state statute. If you live in North Carolina, and a handful of other states, you can actually hold someone other than your spouse legally responsible for your marriage ending.

    "Alienation of affection, which is still recognized in
    Hawaii
    North Carolina
    Mississippi
    New Mexico
    South Dakota and
    Utah

    has roots in English common law. Interestingly, England actually abolished it in 1857. (The government also did away with a similar cause of action that’s often filed alongside alienation of affection called criminal conversation, which gives married people the opportunity to sue on the grounds of adultery. Not surprisingly, this tort is also still a claim of action in North Carolina.)"

  • Thou shalt not messs with another mans wife

  • the spouse is way more at fault that the person they cheated with

  • brb about to introduce my wife to Jeff Bezos

  • Acting like the person you are married with didn't have a choice to not cheat

    Drop her/him and move on with your life

    the spouse is way more at fault that the person they cheated with

    yeah, but both messed up. In some states it's still considered a crime to commit adultery too, so it does even out.

  • If you murder your partner when u see them in the act of cheating basically them being smashed in your face

    U can might get off with “crime of passion”

  • I don't know about the $30m in damages though. Maybe these people were all wealthy

  • If the wife wants to get d***ed down I’m suing the husband for not laying down the pipe properly, in Jesus name amen.

  • I think this is because it's a legal contract when you get married to each other or something like that. So them stepping in is basically breaking the contract (and your vows tbh) so they are at fault.

    Could you set this up tho? You or your wife have s***with a wealthy person and yall sue them for like $40 million

    Quickest way to make BANK

  • Someone send this to cardi B asap
