Crappy Christmas Gift

Every year I seem to get a few divorce clients, or people who at least want to know their options, after receiving a terrible Christmas gift from their spouse.  It also happens that often one of the parties receive a pretty good gift from their paramour/lover, who is not their spouse. After practicing domestic litigation for 19 years, I have come to the conclusion that infidelity is very seldom the cause of divorce.  To the contrary, infidelity is generally a symptom of a troubled or broken marriage.  I am a strong proponent that this is the basis for Kentucky's no fault divorce statutes.  In generally, the Courts do not allow testimony regarding the reasons for the divorce, as it generally has no bearing on division of assets, division of debts or custody of the children. Of course there are no absolutes in the law.  There are occasions where the fault can be brought into play.  Spousal support is an area, for example, where if one party has a "sugar daddy" then that may be considered as income.  Also, if the children are subjected to illegal drugs, then that can be used in a custody proceeding.  also, a court will rarely equally divide debt incurred as a result of one party's gambling or money spent on a girlfriend.
