Alienation of Affections

Did you know that in Hawaii, Illinois, North Carolina, Mississippi, New Mexico, South Dakota, and Utah, wives are effectively considered property of their husbands and if a man steals another mans wife, the thief can be sued?

It's called Alienation of Affections and despite being thrown out 43 states, it still lives on in seven including Illinois where it was recently successfully used.

The thief should consider themselves lucky... they were only ordered to shell out $4,802... last time a case was won here in South Dakota under Alienation of Affections, the judgment was for $265,000.00.
