A man from North Carolina admitted his divorce was almost intolerable, but luckily a legal action has secured him a judgment of $750,000.
Kevin Howard, married to his wife for 12years realized she had been having an affair. Taking his discovery to law, Kevin went on to use an old law titled ‘Alienation of Affection’ to sue the man his now ex-wife had cheated on him with.
Specifically, the law allows spouses to sue one another for purposefully interfering with their marital relationship and for wooing one’s spouse away.

Kevin admitted he wanted to pursue his claim to preserve the ‘sanctity of marriage.’ He described how his marriage started struggling after 12years, prompting him and his now ex-wife to participate in marriage counseling.
Going forward, Kevin felt something was off and in turn hired for himself a private detective. He found out his wife was having an affair with a colleague who had repeatedly visited their home for dinner.

‘We spent a lot of time together, I initially thought he was a friend. I filed the case because I felt it’s important people understand that the sanctity of holy matrimony is significant, most especially in this day and age where people tend to question everyone’s morals and viability. Interestingly, the state-supported me on this.’ Kevin explained.
However, if Kevin’s ex-wife lover is unable to pay the $750,000, it will be tagged as an unpaid debt.
