STDs and Divorce

On Tuesday, the Mississippi Court of Appeals decided Farris v. Farris located here.  This is the first case in Mississippi to find that the exposure of a spouse to a sexually transmitted disease amounts to habitual cruel and inhuman treatment as a ground for divorce.  As a side note, I have been advising clients for a while now to get an STD test anytime infidelity is involved.  In some cases it has given them some piece of mind and in others a big bargaining chip in the divorce process.
