While adultery is technically illegal in Florida, it should not have an effect on anything because this is a no-fault state. You can file for divorce as long as you have been a resident of Florida for at least 6 months.

You have to have been a resident of Florida for six months. Adultery under these circumstances will probably not get you in trouble, except with the husband, and only if you are seeking alimony and have wasted marital assets away on the lover.
