Man pays $4,802 for stealing another man's wife

Filed under: Divorce & Custody

That headline sounds a bit barbaric, but it happened to a Chicago man just last week. In a bizarre love triangle gone wrong one man ended up without the love of his wife, the other man ended up with a large fine and the woman ended up in the middle of a big mess.

By using the alienation of affection law, the husband was able to sue the suitor for $4,802 over the love affair. The obscure Illinois law is one of only eight similar laws in the country.

The wife claims her husband wanted her to pursue the physical affections of other men and women in order to give their stagnant relationship a bit of a boost. Unfortunately for the husband, she fell in love with the new man, prompting the lawsuit.

Sounds like a lot of trouble for a little boredom.
