*Unless you have some hard facts the spouse is cheating and lying about it then yes, it can be mental abuse if you are always bringing the matter up and it's affecting your relationship. The only way you will know for sure is to follow your spouse (that's how I caught my first husband cheating) or hire a detective. If you aren't willing to do either then you are going to have to live with it and not keep accusing your spouse of cheating. There are so many relationships that have been destroyed by jealousy or second-guessing. Some men/women have a problem of trust when it comes to their mate even though their mate is not cheating.

Yes, she can. Having a mental illness is not a "get out of divorce free" card.

Yes you can divorce your spouse if he or she has mental heath problems and you can very well prove it with the help of a doctors certificate , or the doctor himself gives his statement with proof.

Not necessarily. An affair doesn't always cause the spouse to be mean like that. A marraige that is falling apart would cause that. When a spouse is cheating, the last thing they want to do is be mean and suspicious. They want to act normal and even nice so the other doesn't suspect anything. For your marraige: time for counceling. If you want to save this marraige, make an appointment and go (if your spouse wont go, then go alone to see what you can do to save the marraige).

yes that is mental cruelty because he has no reason to file for a divorce with no proof what so ever

Vows were taken in a marriage to love and honor and the couple are expected to stay together for the rest of their lives. When a spouse cheats they break this bond of trust and it is extremely difficult to gain back if the spouse being cheated on doesn't ask for a divorce first. Cheating is sleazy; selfish and hurts not only the husband or wife; but any children they have and perhaps members of both sides of the family. When a spouse cheats they are not only cheating, but they are lying to their spouse.

If the spouse does not constantly cheat and made one mistake by having an affair then talking it out in a calm manner and facing how you both can improve upon the marriage may save the marriage or, you both could go to marriage counseling to learn tools to deal with every day life's stresses. If the spouse is constantly cheating; may be on drugs or abuses alcohol or is constantly verbally or physically harmful to their spouse it is best to move on.

Get out of the relationship. If he/she is cheating on their spouse, they are a cheater. Why would you want to be in a relationship with a cheater? If he/she cheats on their spouse, they will most likely cheat on you too. Plus, it's breaking one of the 10 Comandments.

If this was the first time the spouse cheated and they are remorseful and want to stay in the marriage then yes, it is worth trying to save the marriage by seeing a marriage counselor who is not there to blame either spouse, but to give them the tools to strengthen their marriage. If the spouse continually cheats then it is best to get a divorce.

I live in California and I never heard some cases about a spouse suing the spouse because of affair or cheating. The only way a spouse might get in trouble is when and if his having an affair and not supporting his children under age. But for a wife getting in trouble because of her cheating, it will be hard.
