State of Utah - Family of three - husband, wife and 2.5 year

Resolved Question:

State of Utah - Family of three - husband, wife and 2.5 year old boy. The husband was gone about 60% of the time for work. Neither were happy in marriage and the wife begged for counseling and even filed for divorce about a year ago. The husband refused counseling. Eventually the wife meet new people and thus leading to an affair...perhaps more than one. The wife made bad desicions and her actions are not justified, but she has been the primary caregiver 90% of the childs time. The husband is now saying (in anger and coaching from angry family members) that she is mentally unstable because she cheated on him. He is trying to say that she is not unstable and is building a "case" against her. Can adultery be a reason that the husband/father could be granted full custody? The mother does not drink, do drugs is a very good citizen and has a stable job. Nothing on her record more than a speeding ticket.

Adultery itself is not grounds to affect custody but the person/people she had the affair with or even how/where she met these people could be a factor to affect custody. If she met the men at bars, internet swing or sexsite, clubs or there are multiple men it could have a negative affect on custody.
