Discovering that your spouse has committed adultery can feel like the ultimate betrayal. You may be wondering if divorce is inevitable or if there’s hope to save your marriage. What happens if you try to work through it but ultimately split up – can he still claim adultery later on?This is a complicated situation with no one-size-fits-all answer. There are a few key factors to consider:
Forgiveness in the eyes of the law is known as “condonation.” This means that the betrayed spouse knew about the affair, indicated they forgave it through words or actions, and resumed a normal marital relationship afterwards.Some examples could include:
The timeframe matters too. If the betrayed spouse cohabitates with the adulterer for an extended time after learning of the affair, like over 6 months, it can be evidence of forgiving the adultery.However, condonation does not necessarily last forever. If the adulterer commits new marital offenses later on, like abuse or more cheating, the condonation can be revoked. The original adultery may then be relevant again legally.
If there was a period of condonation, the betrayed spouse cannot then claim the original adultery was the cause of divorce. The adulterer could argue the affair was forgiven and not the reason for splitting up.However, if the adulterer later commits new acts of adultery, the betrayed spouse may now be able to point to the totality of the affairs as justification. The original infidelity, along with the new acts, can be cited as cumulative grounds.
If you want to reconcile, but also want to keep your options open in case it doesn‘t work out, consider:
This provides evidence that you attempted reconciliation cautiously, and did not automatically forgive and resume the marriage. It shows you tried reconciling without fully condoning the affair upfront.
You have a few options if you split up down the road after attempting reconciliation:
If you also had an affair during the marriage, confessing may not help your case. Admitting adultery cannot be used as grounds for divorce. Keep in mind:
Unless your spouse plans to allege you had an affair, it may be best not to volunteer that information during divorce proceedings.
If your spouse had another affair after reconciliation failed, you may want to prove adultery to justify the divorce. Some options include:
In most states, adultery will bar a spouse from receiving alimony. However, if the betrayed spouse condoned the affair, the adulterer may now be eligible for spousal support.Factors like the length of marriage, income levels, child custody, and career sacrifices will also play a role. There are sometimes exceptions too, like if the adulterer would become a public charge without support.
