My wife has added salt to the wound by leaving home to move in with her lover, and then starting legal action to get her part of the family home ! Will the court take her disgraceful behaviour into account when it decides on our relative rights in the family home ?By: דיאנה שאלתיאל•Published on: 10 May, 2022
No ! The Supreme Court held many years ago that there is no connection between a spouse’s role or responsibility for the break-up of the marriage and his/her property rights. In other words if one of the spouses leaves the home or commits adultery for instance, he/she will not lose his/her rights to joint property.
