Some readers who have gone through divorce in El Paso likely have heard about morality clauses. It may be surprising for people without experience in divorce, but family law courts in Texas often accept a clause in a couple's divorce agreement that dictates the former spouse's future relationships.
Typically, the morality clause prohibits either spouse from having a romantic partner spend the night while the children are there, at least until the divorce is finalized. A spouse will often ask the court to invoke the clause when infidelity was a factor in the divorce. The consequences of violating the morality clause can be serious. Essentially, you can be thrown in jail and fined for what goes on in your bedroom after your marriage ends.
