The objective of this article is to uphold the admissibility of damages in the arena of marital relationships. The author deals with two assumptions: the first, referred to those losses suffered by the innocent spouse due to serious breach of marital obligations by the other spouse who caused the separation or divorce. The second assumption considers the admissibility of damages in case there is an expected unilateral divorce that represents an abuse of the law.
