Don't look now, but you may become a defendant in a lawsuit, especially if you are married. I am not speaking of divorce. This is personal injury law at its finest. Let me rephrase my introduction. You may be a defendant in a lawsuit if you are married, if you confide something to your spouse that provokes him or her, and if you also thereafter fail to allow for the possibility that your dearest might act on the provocation in an injurious manner. See Benoit, v. Edington, 2008 WL 4150267.
