    Home-wreckers operate with impunity in 41 out of 50 states, but not in North Carolina. Alienation of affections and criminal conversation are still valid causes of action in the Tarheel state, along Hawaii, Illinois and six other states. Elizabeth Edwards, cancer-stricken wife of adulterous former U.S. Senator and Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards, has threatened an Alienation of Affections suit against her husband's co-adulterer. The viability of the Alienation of Affections cause of action was confirmed recently when a wife won a $9 million judgment against her husband's seducer, a college administrator and academic.
