      Adultery is wrong, but courts need not be tied up by spouses battling over who is more to blame.

      If protecting the children's interests was paramount as opposed just given lip-service, all of divorce law would be different and judges could basically order couples to stay together, to live closeby, to fine them for undermining each other or fighting in front the of the children. Trust me, we don't want courts being the parenting-police either.

      If judges are going to punish a spouse for seeking out sex or companionship in a marriage that does not provide for it, then are they going to be able to order frigid spouses to perform their "marital duties" under pain of a reduced alimony check?

      Courts are for hurt wallets and hurt bodies, not for hurt feelings, and its a mistake to turn them into a forum for the relationship blame-game.

        considered in many of the Blue states here in the Northeast, the decision was made a long time ago that if Adultry occurs the marriage has already broken down.

         That piece of his legislation I could agree with, going back to the "she ate crackers in bed" reason was always dumb. And if you are not old enough to remember that it was the reason Frank Sinatra and Ava Gardner divorced.

         The rest of his legislation however is a bit strange and seemingly self serving.
