    I have to admit that I don't understand most of the ins and outs of divorce, but when New York recently enacted some form of no-fault it was a relief for one of my wife's in-laws -- they can now get out of a bad marriage that neither she nor her husband wants to be in without a protracted fight.

    He's a deadbeat dad who decided it was more fun to move back in with his parents and play video games all day than it was to look after his wife and three girls. She's broke and if she took him to court, his family would help him drag it out for forever and a day. This way he signs a piece of paper and on the one hand it costs *him* nothing, but she gets free of him and can move on with her life.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Florida, where I live, is a shared property state. Regardless of the circumstances of the divorce, both parties are entitled to half the assets. I'd like to see that changed. The person who breaks the marriage (i.e., via abuse, cheating, substance addiction, etc.) should be financially penalized in the settlement, IMO.

    I guess the courts will decide, won't they?
    They won't decide if he was legally entitled to the information. They might decide that he was justified in stealing the information in this instance, much like somone might be found to be justified in stealing bread when they are starving.


    However, I don't believe that a spouse has a legal right to privacy from their spouse, particularly on the subject of infidelity.
    And you are entitled to that belief. However, if those beliefs do not conform to your local laws, you run the risk of violating th elaw if you act upon those beliefs.

    I know if I held those beleifs, I would willingly violate the laws of my region in order to act upon them, and I would not be bothered by the consequences of my decision.

    Normally I agree - but some situations I've been aware of are multi-tiered and pionting fingers at the one who inevitably cheated is ignoring the faults of the other.

    Often times when a relationship falls apart it's so complex with years worht of 'you did . . . ' and 'you said . . . and so I . . . ' drama that an even split is often the most ideal.

    Kids are ususally the ones who get the raw deal in the end - I'm far less distraught over adult-issues.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Spouses are entitled to information on all sorts of things, including joint marital assets, health information, etc. There is a right to privacy, but it's very specific. If an email is left open on the computer, it's fair game. However, if you try to bypass a password or pin, that can be a violation of federal civil law.

    They won't decide if he was legally entitled to the information. They might decide that he was justified in stealing the information in this instance, much like somone might be found to be justified in stealing bread when they are starving.
    It seems to me that a civil remedy might be more appropriate than a criminal remedy, in this instance.

    If my wife was a cheating whore and was coming home and exposing me to god knows what diseases, I think I should have the legal right to know.

    I was researching this issue, and apparently, your spouse isn't even legally obligated to tell you if he/she has AIDS. Something is wrong with that picture.

    That's what I've been saying. I'm glad you agree with my previous statemnt that peopel are not legally entitled to the information.

    I would even go as far as saying that if the woman's password was shared with her husband willfully, she essentially gave him permission to view that information.

    If he "hacked" her account, he stole the information.

    It seems to me that a civil remedy might be more appropriate than a criminal remedy, in this instance.
    If he was justified in his violation of the law, then there should be no civil remedy, IMO. If he wasn't justified, then he should receive th econsequences. If what he did was worth doing in his mind, then willingly accepting the consequences is honorable and just.

    While there is no legal obligation to inform one's partenr, one can be charged with attempted murder or assault if they knowingly expose their spouse to HIV while they are witholding that information.
