Adultery in a Texas Divorce

Although Texas courts have long held that adultery is one of the grounds for divorce, it is less frequently used since Texas became a "no-fault" divorce state in 1970. Nevertheless, it is frequently asserted as an additional ground for divorce which allows a judge to grant a divorce based on finding that one party has committed adultery rather than the judge finding that no one is at fault and instead finding that the marriage has become unsupportable and irreconcilable, hence "no-fault."
