Since Texas is a no-fault-divorce state, does that mean that it doesn’t matter if our client’s husband had an affair with a prostitute and spend $50,000 on her?

Thank you for your question.

Adultery is still grounds for divorce in Texas, it is not a pure no fault State, see

http://www.divorcesource.com/ds/texas/texas-divorce-laws-717.shtml

"Adultery can have a significant impact on how the court decides the financial issues in a Texas divorce, both alimony and property division." from

I hope this information is helpful.

Does this have a statute, regulation, or rule? I need to be able to cite that law as part of my report.

Yes, Texas Family Code section 8.052 subsections 6 and 10 are relevant, and must be considered in awarding spousal support, see
