Really, she's going to drag their dirty laundry in the courts? Maybe if she'd been more of a man, he wouldn't have left her.

Also . . . you can sue homewreckers? Huh. I didn't know that.

Yeah hadn't she ever heard of pegging before??

Also.. Yes, there are still a few states that allow lawsuits directed at a homewrecker. The battles are rarely won though. In this case because it involves the geys in backwaterville the outcome might go either way. However it could be argued that the husband was gay and the marriage was irretrievably broken prior to whatever acts the two guys were involved in. At least that would be my defense..

Shouldn't it be her fault for not being enough of a woman to keep her husband to herself? Like, you know, maybe she didn't bake enough cakes or cook dinners correctly?

Isn't that how it works in Mississippi?

Her husband couldn't get all these gay guys to stop sucking his dick?

In most states, no. I know that in North Carolina you can, I guess Wisconsin as well, unless somebody failed to do their homework.

It's pretty apparent that the reporter or editor is trying to get in some sort of dig with the "Miss. Mayor" bit.

I think the gay man should make a special chocolate pie for her and then take it to her and apologize.

Greg Davis isn't gay. He's insane.

He's just using the claim of being gay to garner sympathy from the derptard religious crowd around Southaven and an excuse for being a corrupt, lying sack of shiat who stole millions from the city.

alienation of affection laws vary from state to state.

"Alienation of affections was first codified as a tort by the New York state legislature in 1864, and similar legislation existed in many U.S. states in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Since 1935, this tort has been abolished in 42 states, including New York. Alienation is, however, still recognized in Hawaii, Illinois, North Carolina, Mississippi, New Mexico, South Dakota, and Utah."

Yup. Read about a case 6-7 years ago when I lived there that was in the news. A woman went after her ex husband AND his "homewrecker" and won. Not sure what the damages were but IIRC she went after their bank accounts and property even though they had not been married. One of the ordinances broken I think was "Abandonment of affection" and a couple other obscure ones. This was right about the same time NC ditched the co-habitation law.

Freedom of association is a fundamental, natural right. If your husband or wife chooses the association of another over associating with you, then that's your problem and dragging another party into court over it should be the crime. I hope he countersues.

Yep, alienation of affection.

That was fun to learn about in law school.

You used to could, but not so much anymore, torts for "alienation of affection" have, in almost every state gone on to the dust heap of antique legal notions right next to the criminal adultery statutes and the notion the fact that the parties were married constituted a legal defense to a rape charge.

She has legal grounds for suing. Probably "denial of natural affection" or some crap like that. It is, after all, illegal to break up a marriage regardless of your sex or sexual proclivities. That which God or State or a licenced Casino hath joined together, you get between at your risk. She could sue a gold-digger or the other woman, for all that. She could sue a seedy motel if she liked. She might even win, although seedy motels are very good at hiding money and clean linen.

On the other hand, is this guy worth a million to her? He doesn't look like he's worth a million to me and I think Al Bundy is kinda hot but not Danny Bonaduce hot. She has probably lost a cash cow, so to speak, but she should really just be content with the alimony, the child support, the house, everything he owns, his favourite dog, the children and all the other things that she is entitled to, including his balls, bronzed and attached to an attractive key chain or bracelet.

Unless the gay guy is putting up her Hubbie at his place, he probably never intended to harm their marriage. He was just doing what came naturally: proving that every politician, regardless of political persuasion, is a functional bisexual who will screw anything that isn't plugged with molten lead.

With the following exceptions:

Jimmy Carter, former POTUS
Joe Clark, former PM of Canada
The Emperor Claudius, the only Roman Emperor to not screw everything he wasn't plugging with molten lead at the time

These three men are, I believe firmly, genuine heterosexuals who have engaged in unnatural political practices. The rest are not to be trusted by either sex. They are all politically and sexually bisexual. Sex and politics are essentially the same thing. I don't know why we need either of them.

To quote the title of a famous book by James Thurber and the recently deceased E.B. White (author of Charlotte's Web), Is Sex Necessary? You know that the answer to all rhetorical questions in titles is "no". Politicians at least could do without sex altogether. Turkeys do. One in ten turkeys are conceived parthenogentically, which is a fancy way of saying they have something very important in common with Our Lord and Saviour--their Mother was a Virgin who never knew a Man. Well, apart from the odd farm boy, but certainly not a male member of their own species, like the politicians and the gays.

I'd think tht she's got a fair chance of winning, it being the South and all and the stigma attached to being a closeted gay politician.

Jesus Christ, you'd think I would have known this already, but I didn't!

And the rate of parthenogenetic birth is close to 40 percent for some turkey breeds.

What exactly makes something a "gay" sex shop? It's not like there are sexual practices that are exclusive to homosexuals.

Alienation of affection and denial of natural affection are two different things. Denial of natural affection is a tort related to injuries, etc.

I practice family law in Mississippi, and there are a few things about our backwards and outdated laws that I like, and some that I don't. I don't like having to plead the specific fact of the each member of a couple's race in a divorce complaint. I don't like how atheists aren't allowed to hold public office, but I do like this alienation of affection thing. Seems backward, but it's pretty equitable.

Think about it. Your spouse cheats on you with a waitress at the Waffle House and now you go through a divorce. You're looking at thousands in legal fees, and the average woman around here has a 40-50% drop in income due to divorce. Divorce is expensive, and some portion of the fault lies with the waitress, why shouldn't she be held liable? It's a great incentive not to sleep with married people too.

ALso, here's a CSB:
Bernie Ebbers (former Worldcom CEO and current prison rape recipient) had an affair with a woman that went to my church. They would up getting hitched, and the rumor around town was that he paid her husband $10 million to sign a waiver of his rights to file one of these suits.
 
2012-10-22 04:09:13 PM

In her suit, Suzann Davis says her former husband's longtime "deviant homosexual adulterous association" with Fair came to light when she on April 5, 2010, "inadvertently discovered intimate communications" in which Fair told Davis he was looking forward to the Las Vegas trip.

if he swallows but does not spit, you must acquit.

if he choked on Fair's wee-wee, my client must walk free-free.

If his mangina got railed well, he must leave the jail cell.

MistaWaRe: Alienation of affection and denial of natural affection are two different things. Denial of natural affection is a tort related to injuries, etc.


Yeah. The latter is more frequently referred to as "loss of consortium," which focuses on the result rather than the cause and is thus a little clearer.
