As discussed before on Charlotte Divorce Lawyer Blog (Alimony and Child Support Payments in the Public Eye and Charlotte, North Carolina Family Law Lawyers and Court Address Confidentiality Provisions), there has been a continuing battle over whether the proceedings related to the Brian France domestic case will be kept confidential. According to a Charlotte Observer article (Secrecy in Frances' bitter divorce is back in court) the case was back in Court this week. The lawyers for the Charlotte Observer were again asking a Mecklenburg County District Court Judge to unseal certain documents in the case.

According to the most recent Census data, North Carolina has more and more same-sex domestic partners. In fact, according to the data, the number of same-sex domestic partners in North Carolina has increased 68% in the last decade. Much of the growth has been in the western part of the State and along the coast.
It is difficult to tell whether the numbers have actually increased. According to the article, it is possible that the increased census figures are the result of more and more people being comfortable disclosing their status accurately on government forms.
This is, admittedly, a radical notion. Particularly in Charlotte, North Carolina and surrounding areas. For goodness sake, North Carolina still recognizes Alienation of Affection and Criminal Conversation lawsuits. But, a recent article in the New York Times thoroughly explores whether infidelity might actually be good for some relationships. In this article, the author thoroughly explores the ins-and-outs of this theory. Before the reader allows her blood pressure to boil, she should read the article. The author seems to have a realistic and honest approach to the issue. One of the more important points which the author makes is that infidelity in a marriage is not for everyone.
