Have Military Law Questions? Ask a Military Lawyer.
Hello Lyndsay,My name isXXXXX a licensed attorney. Glad to try and help out.I'm pleased to share the following information with you. No, this is not a possibility. Adultery has been abrogated (eliminated) as a civilian criminal offense. Furthermore, the military tribunal has no jurisdiction over a civilian in such matters. The botXXXXX XXXXXne is that the civilian spouse is free to commit marital infidelity, speaking from a purely legal point of view (the moral implications are left to the conscience of each person).
If you have a follow-up question or need clarification, please just say the word by using "reply" to reach me. I truly hope all works out for you.Take care,Ben, J.D.
thats even if we are not legaly seperated ?
