Adultery Laws: When Enacted

Today's post looks at when adultery laws were enacted.  Based on A Guide to America's Sex Laws published in 1996, Louisiana was the last state to enact an adultery law.  More precisely, Louisiana defined that adultery was grounds for a divorce in 1990.  I suspect this legal change decriminalized adultery but kept it as grounds for divorce.

In more recent adultery law news, Colorado repealed its adultery law in 2012.
