Could a civilian spouse get charged with adultry if she where

This answer was rated:

Could a civilian spouse get charged with adultry if she where to cheat on her husband while he is deployed?

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.

Hi Lyndsay,

No -- nothing -- you simply can't be charged with the crime of adultery, period.
