Q: My wife is a cheater! I recently have found out that she has been seeing her boss secretly behind my back for over a year. I am going to confront her and kick her out of the house this weekend, but my question is, can I file criminal charges of “adultery” on either one of them besides filing for divorce?
A: Wow, I am very sorry, but no, you cannot file criminal charges for cheating. Adultery laws were removed from Indiana law back in 1976. In divorce proceedings judges cannot use adultery or infidelity as the only basis for divorce, however they can consider the financial impact a partner who cheats on their spouse may have.
