I have a friend who is an active duty member, he is currently deployed and has been since December of 2014. His wife called him today and said that she is leaving him, and has had sexual relations with another man for several months now.
Is his wife not liable for any kind of adultery charge, punitive damages, or emotional stress and suffering charges? Abandonment
-And is the other person committing the adultery act with her not liable for alienation of affection
, punitive damages, or emotional stress and suffering?
I know there are laws in the UCMJ against the service member committing adultery, but are the spouses really not liable for any kind of punishment for this?
My friend is now suicidal and in bad mental condition due to this, AND IS DEPLOYED- he is directly involved in combat, being that he is an infantry soldier. This type of emotional stress is not only directly effective of his health due to suicidal thoughts, extra stress, and all around mental instability, but also because it can be a distraction during combat and could endanger his life in that aspect. He is being taken to medical tomorrow morning, but isn't that also detrimental to his military career.. all because of his cheating spouse, and is it really possible that she will not be held accountable for this? Neither will the male involved with the wife?
