From the story: "...says her religious upbringing made divorce impossible."
But her "religion" made it okay for her to abandon her child & husband, and run off with a man who also was married to someone else?
Oh, puh-leeze. Give me a break. Who does she think she's fooling? If her behavior isn't bad enough, her excuse is for it is even worse.

And sometimes people are just plain crazy or stupid. I agree with the poster about the married man--pretty funny no one put out a search on him. Maybe his wife felt "yah!! the bugger's gone!". Both of these folks were idiots and weren't thinking of anything other than their little ol' narcissistic selves. Why do we feed this stuff?

Her husband needs to grow a pair...He still wants her to come home and "talk about it and work it out"....Maybe if DID have a pari, his wife wouldn't have left him for the Billy Ray Cyrus look-a-like.
I'm betting that her husband actually knew that she left him and just wanted her to come back...he probably was trying to give her a way to come back without looking like a cheating Wh@#*!!!

Put her in jail for what? Name the crime she committed. What she did to her husband & child was wrong, but not a crime.

This chick is dumber than a screen door in a submarine. Did she really think she would leave like that and nobody would wonder what happened to her. Her soon to be x husband should get as far away from this train wreck as he can get. After a few months with the dirt bag she took off with she'll probably come whinning back anyway. The more we find out about this chick, the more I wonder if the child is even her husbands work. Who knows if this was her first fling! And if at all possible she should have to pay back the money wasted on looking for her dumb a$$. By the way honey you can go to hell just as fast for adultry, lies and deceit as you can for divorce, So I'm not sure I would use the religious aspect of divorce as a defense.

One charge that would be a possibility is inducing panic.

Committing any offense, with reckless disregard of the likelihood that its commission will cause serious public inconvenience or alarm

Unfortunately, there are people who confuse "immorality" with "illegality." Two entirely different topics.

No doubt this woman's either crazier than a loon or dumber than a box of rocks. And adultery is considered immoral. What she did isn't illegal though.

Friends & family saying "Oh,She'd NEVER do anything like that"...is NOT overwhelming evedence of foulplay
We have a right to be left alone......
She left a kid and a husband at home, who had no idea why she left. She has no right to walk away from all that without any repercussions. Nice logic...

Oh but she DOES have a RIGHT to do that..
It's very irresponsible of her to do it....and it's not nice...
BUT in our country...adults are free to come & go as they please...
You answer to no one.
Can the police force her to return to her family????
The government, ie; police, should not hunt down adults who have not commited a crime

What you say is MOSTLY true. Its called CHILD SUPPORT. She has every right to physically and emotionally run away from her child, but financially she has every right, in this country, to support her child.

According to Wikipedia:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adultery#cite_no...

In the United States, laws vary from state to state. In those states where adultery is still on the statute book (although rarely prosecuted), penalties vary from life sentence (Michigan)[47], to a fine of $10 (Maryland), to a Class I felony (Wisconsin)[48]. In the U.S. Military, adultery is a potential court-martial offense.[15] The enforceability of adultery laws in the United States has been / is being questioned following Supreme Court decisions since 1965 relating to privacy and sexual intimacy of consenting adults, in cases such as Lawrence v. Texas; however, occasional prosecutions occur.[49]

http://www.usatoday.com/news/opinion/forum/20...

South Carolina:"Any man or woman who shall be guilty of the crime of adultery or fornication shall be liable to indictment and, on conviction, shall be severally punished by a fine of not less than $100 nor more than $500 or imprisonment for not less than six months nor more than one year or by both fine and imprisonment, at the discretion of the court....'Adultery' is the living together and carnal intercourse with each other or habitual carnal intercourse with each other without living together of a man and woman when either is lawfully married to some other person."

Minnesota: "When a married woman has sexual intercourse with a man other than her husband, whether married or not, both are guilty of adultery and may be sentenced to imprisonment for not more than one year or to payment of a fine of not more than $3,000, or both."

North Carolina: "Fornication and adultery. If any man and woman, not being married to each other, shall lewdly and lasciviously associate, bed and cohabit together, they shall be guilty of a Class 2 misdemeanor: Provided, that the admissions or confessions of one shall not be received in evidence against the other."

New Hampshire: "A person is guilty of a class B misdemeanor if, being a married person, he engages in sexual intercourse with another not his spouse or, being unmarried, engages in sexual intercourse with another known by him to be married."

The police didn't hunt her down because they thought she committed a crime. If someone I care about tells me they are going shopping, then they don't return and I can't reach them on their cell phone, I am going to call the police to get help finding them. Then if the police find their car abandoned, with a flat tire and no sign that the person is coming back or any clue what happened, then they are obligated to keep looking.

Now, once they found her safe in Florida (or where ever), and know that she is there voluntarily (i.e. not kidnapped), then they should let her be and report back to her family what they found. They police have an obligation to make sure a person is safe. The first few hours after someone goes missing are the most critical.

Do you really think these laws can be criminally enforced? Divorce is largely a civil matter, not a criminal matter. I kicked my ex out for having an affair, which he wouldn't give up.

Much better they are NOT in jail so that they can pay child support and any alimony, etc.

It would be damn near impossible to enforce these laws. There are plenty of stupid, unenforceable laws on the books today, some carry overs from the 19th century.

I'd rather have rapists, murders, and thieves taking up the precious resources of a prison than someone who is stupid and crazy enough to bust up a marriage. As emotionally gratifying as it would have been to see my ex locked up cause I thought he was a total jerk, it would have done no good for anyone involved.

She left the one thing she knew he cared about, the SUV! If she had not left it he (her husband) would have walked all the way to Miami Beach!

She is an absolute poor excuse for a MOTHER. But I suspect her husband wasn't all that great which why she went looking for love in all the wrong places.

But why run off with a married man???

Regardless of who was the "worse" spouse in this situation, both of them should have been adult enough to handle the situation differently. Running away and leaving a child behind indicates this woman was incapable of making emotionally intelligent decisions. Running away with another man, regardless of his marital status, only shows how emotionally immature the entire situation became.
