    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.

    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.
