Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • Under Virginia equitable distribution principles, the negative impact of marital fault can be considered. And the fault need not be the basis for the final divorce. To be a valid consideration, however, the marital fault must be relevant to one of the statutory factors listed in Va. Code Ann. § 20-107.3(E). Though equitable distribution is not a vehicle to punish behavior, the statutory guidelines authorize consideration of such behavior as having an adverse effect on the marriage and justifying an award that favors one spouse over the other. In other words, while equitable distribution should not degenerate into a witch hunt for marital misconduct, there should still be legally enforceable rules of conduct for spouses during the marriage.
