Can someone sue for "stealing" a spouse?

While not permitted in New York for couples who legally marry here, several other jurisdictions have laws that allow spouses to sue individuals who disrupt their marriages. Usually, when one or more states pass legislation, there is an increased incidence of other jurisdictions adopting similar laws. If you were married outside New York, discuss it with your lawyer to determine if this may be a claim in your case. Similarly, if you are involved with someone who was originally married in another state and is now divorcing, you should check with a matrimonial attorney to see if "alienation of affection" may be a liability.
