Kristin Cavallari is accusing her estranged husband, Jay Culter, of ‘inappropriate marital conduct’ during their marriage and has cited it in legal documents as the reason for their split. But, the couple claims there was NO cheating that led to their marriage, so what exactly is she saying he did wrong?
The ‘Very Cavallari’ star filed divorce documents in Williamson County, Tennesse saying the marriage ended due to ‘inappropriate marital conduct.’
According to multiple reports, Kristin and Jay claim there was no cheating involved in their decision to split, but only a few issues fall under this specific legal category.
In reports on this subject, the law is defined as “The husband or wife is guilty of such cruel and inhuman treatment or conduct towards the spouse as renders cohabitation unsafe and improper, which may also be referred to in the pleadings as inappropriate marital conduct.”
In a divorce filing of this nature, Kristin’s legal position could be coming from a number of things that she could claim went on during the marriage.
First, Adultery or Infidelity — Of course, in this case, they have both floated to the media that this did not happen in the marriage.
Second, it could be allegations of physical or emotional abuse. In one article on Tennesse divorce law, it cited one of the parties ‘violent temper’ as one of the issues in a marriage. Again, neither of them have accused the other of anything of the sort.
Third, one of the parties is charged with a Felony. At this point, again, there is no reason to believe he has been charged with any crime.
Lastly, Abnormal Sex, Refusing Sex, and Excessive Sex could be used as grounds for this filing. But, in this case, Kristin has been very open about the couple’s physical relationship and has said publically that it is great.
At this point in the couple’s divorce, if they decide to settle the case using a private mediator, she may never have to explain any further than the original filing.
But, if the case goes to trial because Jay Cutler decides to challenge the filing, Kristin may be forced to be more specific about his alleged ‘misconduct.’
As we reported, Jay Cutler filed for divorce in Tennesse court several days before Kristin filed her own legal documents. In his case, he is asking for joint custody of the couples three children, and for their prenup to be enforced.
In her case, she is asking for primary physical custody of the kids and added ‘inappropriate marital conduct’ as a cause for the couples split.
