Ex-Louisville football coach avoids testifying in divorce

Because Kentucky is a no-fault divorce state, it is not necessary that either spouse prove the other did something specific to cause the relationship to sour. However, it can still come up as an issue, perhaps when the spouses are fighting over child custody and one spouse wants to paint the other as an unfit parent.

That was apparently the motive in a contentious Kentucky divorce that nearly required former University of Louisville football coach Charlie Strong to testify. Before the spouses settled their divorce on Feb. 25, the husband, a university trustee, accused his ex-wife of having an affair with Strong.

Previously, the husband filed a motion to have Strong give a deposition, force him to turn over correspondence between Strong and the wife from 2012 to the present, and require him to return clothing and a watch she allegedly gave Strong as gifts.

Strong left U of L in 2014 to become head coach at the University of Texas. According to the Louisville Courier-Journal, Strong issued a statement in which he did not directly acknowledge or deny having an affair, saying he would not comment on a pending legal matter.

Now, it appears he will not have to discuss the matter under oath. Though the ex-husband had been seeking sole custody of the couples’ daughters, they now will share custody, the ex-husband’s lawyer said.

Adultery has ruined many marriages in Kentucky, but the fact that it rarely a factor in the divorce process anymore makes getting divorced much easier. Please talk to a divorce attorney for more information about what no-fault divorce means.
