Does Adultery Affect Who Gets the Kids?

Answer: No.

These are separate issues with no legal connection. If a person is unfaithful and treats his or her spouse poorly, it does not mean that he or she treats the children poorly. To suggest otherwise, would be to say that someone who is a good parent could never be guilty of cheating. Again, there is no automatic connection between being unfaithful and being able to parent one’s children properly.
