First Constitutional Court, after the Board of the Unification of Case Laws of the Supreme Court decided that; immaterial compensation in favor of the cheated spouse cannot be requested from the lover of the cheating spouse.
According to the vast majority of members of the Board of the Unification of Case Laws's jurisprudence; “the lover” is a third person and not the part of the union of marriage, that is why their act is not an “action in tort”. So, there is no reason to pay a compensation.
