You are really going to need a good lawyer for this one. No matter what the circumstance you deserted your children and left them in a dangerous environment and it will appear to the courts you did so because you had an affair. The lawyer may be able to prove you were terrified and not of sound mind at the time and the judge just may sway in your favor. It's a chance you're going to have to take. Good luck Marcy

Lutherans do not believe in divorce, however are released from the marriage when there is adultery committed in the marriage. Mt 19:9 "And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery; and whoever marries her who is divorced commits adultery."

The definition of adultery varies by location, but it's unlikely that fondling would count in any jurisdiction as adultery.

In granting a divorce in California, judges can not use adultery or infidelity as a reason. However, they can consider the financial impact a partner who cheats on his or her spouse may have. In some cases, a judge may also consider if the adultery had an effect on the children of the marriage as well.

Yes. The Bible covers a range of issues such as the first marriage (Adam and Eve), monogamy, sexual union within a marriage, polygamy, adultery, divorce, widows and the conception of children etc etc etc.

It is a abomination to God and those who do it commit adultery. It is one of the ten commandments You shall not commit adultery. Exodus 20:14 Actually, sex before marriage is known as fornication, not adultery. Adultery is when someone who is married has sex with someone who is not their spouse.

Adultery is extramarital sex. Polygamy is marriage to more than one woman.

Ideally, children are born in a marriage where the parents are committed to each other but hopefully all children are loved and respected.

Adultery is when you cheat on your spouse and divorce is when you end the marriage from your spouse.

The laws on adultery were against the woman. Men's adultery was never punished, but there were dire consequences for women who found lovers either within marriage or after separation. Maintenance would be stopped abruptly if there was even a whiff of another relationship. She was also isolated and condemned to a life of loneliness and isolation. Worst of all , she lost her children. A father had exclusive control of the children in any marriage. He owned them as he did his wife and in divorce he retained custody of them even if he were the guilty party. She might never see them again. Some women simply walked out on their husbands and newspapers are peppered with announcements of elopements and husbands in a hurry to disclaim their wife's debts.

If she is Muslim and you both are in Oman, then the answer is NO, she will be committed with adultery if she married a non-muslim person, if you live in a non-muslim community, you may marry a civilian marriage.

A divorce is different from an annulment because in a divorce, you are breaking the marriage, in a way undoing the marriage, but in an annulment, the Church finds out if the marriage was legitimate (eg. Finding out if one of the spouses committed adultery, had a legitimate marriage before this marriage etc.), and if they find one point that would have made the marriage illegitimate in the eyes of God, there declare that the couple were never actually married in the first place.

The basic forms that need to be filed in a divorce are the names, date of birth, date of marriage, names of children from this marriage. One also has to state reasons for the divorce, like for example cruel and abusive treatment, or adultery.

Hester Prynne committed adultery whereas Mike Tyson committed rape. However Tyson's second wife Monica Turner claimed when she filed a divorce that Tyson did commit adultery during their 5 year marriage that "has neither been forgiven nor condoned." Regarding Turner's allegations there has never been any evidence brought forward to prove this.

No marriage and no children. That never happened.
