Abstract:Only in special cases do couples file for divorce based on alienation of mutual affection caused by marital infidelity. Many faultless parties claim moral damage compensation from those at fault at the same time as filing for divorce. Owing to relatively imperfect legal regulations, there are many difficulties in offering testimony and providing compensating. This requires reform of legal institutions and trial mechanisms. Legal measures could be made more maneuverable by the perfection of marriage law and application of civil litigation rules. This will help solve difficulties related to moral damage compensation in divorce.
