To bad, I think this is a good idea. If one party acts to ruin the marriage in a egregious manner then that should be taken into account. Why should a woman, or man, who commits adultery and ruins a family then spend the rest of their life getting paid by the spouse they wronged? Seems like simple common sense to me.

Current law allows taking into account fault in determining alimony. This bill will define fault as the state court of appeals asked the legislature to define fault. This does and I will belive it is dead March 14 at Midnight. Until then no bill is truely dead.
