That very much depends. Are you filing for a 'fault' based divorce, or a for a 'no fault' divorce?
Thank you for your follow-up.
If you are filing for a 'cause' based divorce, specifically for adultery, you can indeed use this current relations against him. This won't generally give you more of the assets because assets are not something that the courts can penalize one person with, but you likely can demand a far greater share of alimony and support, and even potentially seek lifetime alimony due to the very long length of your marriage.
