This shouldn't even be an option. Nobody can "steal" your spouse.
They're both proud drunks, they're both proud sluts and they're both proud wearers of thirsty weaves. They both probably think that the other one is swallowing up the entire world's supply of vodka, peen and yellow weaves. Michael K (re Brandi & Chelsea)

Sorry - but money does buy happiness. I am a lot happier now than I was when I was a broke student. Not having to worry about money allows me to enjoy other parts of life a great deal more. That said, I do not believe she should be allowed to sue the other woman juts because her husband dumped her.
You don't engage with crazies. Because they're, you know, fucking crazy. - WitchCurlGirl
Let's look at this from another point of view....You have a business and in your business you have a contract with your best client. The contract pretty clearly states who's obligation it is to do certain things - provide product, shipping, cost, how long the relationship will last, etc. A new business comes into your community and tries to solicit your client's business. They offer all sorts of cut prices and other perks to entice your client to break the contract. Your client tells the competitor that they have a perfectly fine contract with you, but the competitor just keeps negotiating and offering more and more perks. Your client does break the client and goes into business with your competitor. You still have your contract and you were perfectly able to continue to perform your duties under the contract. You're darn tootin' that you have a cause of action against your client for breaching the contract AND you have a cause of action against the competitor for intentionally interfering with a business relationship (and a few other causes of action).
Now if the wife is you, the ex-husband is the client and the mistress/new wife/student is the competitor, the case makes some sense. If the state legislature has reviewed the law and hasn't seen fit to change it, they must think it has some value for their state.
that's ridiculous. a marriage is a contract but it's not a business contract. it's a partnership where either party is free to leave at any time and break the contract, and one where the only ones who have any say in the matter or can be held responsible for something going wrong are the two people involved. in businesses, contracts have a time limit to them.
if we follow your example, one thing you forgot to mention is that business contracts have durations. you only have to stay with the company for x amount of years. so do you think it would make sense to have marriage contracts where partners have to be faithful for 3 years and after that they can fuck whoever they want? no. that would be ridiculous.
this is north carolina.If the state legislature has reviewed the law and hasn't seen fit to change it, they must think it has some value for their state.
also, there are loads of retarded laws still on the books. would you say the same applies to these:
- In Los Angeles, It is not legal to bathe two babies at the same time in the same tub.
- In Riverside, Kissing on the lips, unless both parties wipe their lips with carbonized rose water, is against the local health ordinance.
No hanky panky allowed in Connecticut.. A person who commits any unnatural and lascivious act with another person commits a misdemeanor of the second degree, punishable as provided in s. It is illegal for unmarried couples to commit lewd acts and live together
- A state law requires that a man's female companion shall call him "master" while out on a date. The law does not apply to married couples.
- In Zion, It is illegal for anyone to give cats, dogs, or other domesticated animals a lighted cigar.
- It is not legal for a tavern owner to serve beer unless a nice kettle of soup is also brewing.
- In Reno, It is unlawful for any person to carry on, conduct or maintain any marathon dancing or marathon walking Source: Code 1966, § 11.12.130

Sorry but comparing marriage to a business contract is ludicrous, unless we're talking about Tom Cruise and his Hired Robot.
And yes, money has bought me happiness in the way of some bitchin shoes or a new dress but comparing that to suing a mistress for alienating affections (so silly, hello, if anyone alienated affections it'd be the husband--he was married to the missus, not the mistress) if so off base. Apples, oranges and all that jazz.
I personally love the 'oral sex is illegal' laws.
I was simply making a comparison where legal rights exist and are enforced. In both instances a client/business partner or spouse is free to walk away, and there are consequences to that in either instance. And yes, 3rd parties can be held liable for interferring in business deals - and apparently in some states, marriages.
Marriages are absolutely comparable to business contracts. Why do you think alimony exists? Why do you think it's so expensive to get divorced to sort out who owns what and gets what? Why pre and post nuptial agreements exist?

Because if the cheating spouse really loved and respected their partner, and the relationship was healthy & solid, they would never cheat to begin with. Trying to hold someone else responsible for a spouse's adultery is waste of energy.
